Introducing the Electives....

There is something new and exciting going on at Tamaki College this year. It is called the Electives!!

Examples include swimming, baking, anaimation, preparing for polyfest, to name just a few...
There is even a TCTV elective and that new team of Chantelle, Allen, Tulsa and Soni have put together this first video for you have have a little look at some of the electives.

During the build up for Athletics day, the competition is always high for the four houses to produce the best march on, on the day. The prefects and house captains work hard on their chants and dance moves and  make sure the that the rest of their house is well practiced for the events....
Here they are, see what you think.

Athletics 2011...

It was a fabulous,  hot afternoon on Tuesday this week and Tamaki College had their Athletics Day. Parents and staff were out on the school field waiting for the students to arrive in their house groups. It was a very colourful sight as they came out one by one, ready for an exciting afternoon of competition.
TCTV were there to catch all of the action as the students came out and as they competed in all the races.
Here are the photographs of the afternoon...

Girls Touch Team Start the Sporting Year off...

Check out the Sports Page to see how the Girls' Touch team did in the first sporting event of the year.

Netbook Imaging Day....

It was a huge day here at Tamaki College today. Two of our Year 10 classes are taking part in the year long net book trial for Manaiakalani. Today was the day that all the net books were sorted out and made ready to go. The students will be using these to produce their work on Google Docs, using our cluster wide wireless network.
We had lots of help from our friends at Point England School who came to train our two Year 10 volunteers. Sela, Josh and Helen came and helped Boaza and Jessica learn how to set up the netbooks.
