Powhiri 2010...

Well it's definitely the start of a new school year here at Tamaki College when we have our Powhiri to welcome all the new students and staff to the school. It was a beautiful day on Thursday when we all assembled on the Tamaki College marae where we welcomed our new Year 9 students, new staff and exchange students to the school.
Here are some photographs from the day.

Year 9 and Year 13 Team Building...

We have had our Year 9 students in today where they had an opportunity to go into their core subjects to see what they were all about. Our Year 13 students were in going through their credits and making sure all their courses for this year are sorted out. To relieve all this hard work both year groups were out on the field this afternoon doing team building activities. It was a hot afternoon but the senior students were keen to show the new Year 9 students how we get into the Tamaki spirit!!!

Updates from Christine....

Well. Christine is having such a good time it's looking like we might have to go and get her!!! In her post, she explains how much she loved the formal and what Olympic Week is all about.

First Week Back...

We have had a really busy first week back here at Tamaki College. Our senior students have all been coming in and signing up for their NCEA courses. Our Deans and Curriculum coordinators have been working hard to guide the students to the correct courses!!
The end of the week was with our Year 10's with them settling back into school with their new Tutor teachers. They had some fun on the field at the end of the day with team building activities.
Here are some photographs of the tutor groups competing against each other in tug of war with the tutor teachers getting into the spirit of it too!!
