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!!

Careers Expo

The Careers Expo provides an opportunity  
for our students and teachers alike creating a  stimulus for discussion and , increased knowledge all in one place’.

Recently all Year 13 and 12 students were herded onto Double Decker passes with thier Tutor Teachers in support to attend the Careers Expo Auckland held at the ASB showgrounds in Auckland. They were taking full advantage of an opportunity for students to talk face to face with the widest range of employers industry government departments and training providers. 

The students were exemplary in their attitude and behaviour and received many compliments on the day about how engaged and on task they were as they completed Careers related tasks on the day.

Cheers to all involved and definitely a regular event on our Careers Calendar in the future.
