Dan Bidois mentoring session streamed live from Tamaki College

An exciting event in the auditorium this morning at Tamaki College.
Dan Bidois, on behalf of the Sir Peter Blake Trust and Spark, held a mentoring session where he talked about leadership. The Year 12 students and some of the Year 9,10 and 11 students were invited to listen and ask questions. Our future leaders don't get chances like this very often and were keen to take the opportunity.



Here is the write up from the site ..
Dan Bidois, one of New Zealand’s greatest academic success stories, will be speaking to students in a live streamed event. 
Dan is a successful international economist and policy maker, currently advising the government of Malaysia as a Fellow for the Malaysia Blue Ocean Strategy Institute. Prior to this Dan spent three years working as an economist for the OECD based in Paris, France, and he has also worked as a strategy consultant with Deloitte New Zealand.
Although at the age of 15 Dan dropped out of his Auckland high-school and shortly thereafter bet the odds to overcome cancer, today he holds a Bachelor in Commerce (Honours), a Bachelor of Arts and most recently he graduated from Harvard University with a Masters in Public Policy, as a New Zealand Fulbright Scholar.
Dan will be speaking about the importance of dreaming big, setting clear goals and actions and believing in yourself in the face of setbacks and failures.

Data is Key - Tamaki College write up in the Courier

Tamaki College features in a write up in the East and Bays Courier this week.
Here it is online on stuff.co.nz


Catering Students Looking Good in Secondary School Competition

Late nights and hard work has finally paid off for our two Catering competitors. Seini Moala & Vaioletti Sau competed in the Secondary school regional salon sponsored by the chef's association for 2015. It is our first time to enter into a live kitchen competition and it was pretty intense. Seini participated in cake decorating, wraps, omelette, barista and smoothie. Due to clashes in the heats Seini missed out on the smoothie and wrap competition. However it was a very successful day as both student's are winners in their own right. Vai competed in the barista competition and walked away with a certificate of participation. Seini received a certificate of participation for both omelette and barista and walked away with a bronze medal  in cake decorating. Well done to both and thank you to everyone for your patience and support.

1st 15 V Papatoetoe

Another team effort by Tamaki College to secure a win in wet and windy conditions. Boys were up for today's game after memories of the play off loss to Papatoetoe in 2013. Papatoetoe scored first before the game turned in Tamaki Colleges favour through scrum and lineout dominance. Final score Tamaki 32 - Papatoetoe 19. 2013 loss now truly forgotten.

Here is the link to lots of photos taken by Ms George....
Thanks for capturing all the action Miss!!
