Careers and Open Evening

It has been a really busy night here at Tamaki College. We held a combined careers and open evening. There were lots of external providers of courses and information set up on the Marae for students and parents to look round and gather loads of really useful information for their future plans. Also there was the music department providing great entertainment, a sausage sizzle and a bouncy castle for the little ones. After visiting there, parents were welcome to tour the school where all the departments were open with displays and information about courses and choices. Here are some photos from the night... Here is what some of out seniors get up to while waiting for parents to direct.... practicing their polyfest moves...

Tamaki College students are really lucky having the opportunity to work with their new netbooks this year. What they need to realize is the importance of being safe online while they are working. TCTV have been out and about asking people what they think is important about being safe on the internet. The video is presented by Dose.

The Web Ellis Cup comes to Tamaki College...

We had such an exciting time here at Tamaki College when the Rugby World Cup roadshow came to see us. The whole school was in the auditorium for the main presentation, where they saw ex Tamaki students talk about how well they were doing with rugby. A video was played of Sonny Bill Williams talking about commitment to the game and quizzes were done, where 2 lucky winners got to come on stage to hold the cup. After that, the school went into whanau groups to practice their athletics chants. While that was happening, the cup was brought round to each group for photographs and a closer look. We laso had visitors from our local primary and intermediate schools to come and see the cup. you can see them in the photographs too.
