Principal’s Panui – 29 November 2019

What’s Important Now? (W.I.N) How to create a winning mentality? Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow – Live for the Moment! There are two days in every week which we should not worry about. Two days which should be kept free from fear and anxiety. One of these days is yesterday, as it has now passed. We cannot undo a single act or erase a single word said or left unsaid. Positive reflection is fine if we learn from it and do not dwell negatively on it. The other day is tomorrow. Tomorrow is not in our immediate control although we can…

9MAO Haerenga Ki Unitec

My day started off with bottled up excitement, before even arriving at our destination I was pumped to explore something new and get the opportunity to experience something that most people don’t get to. I knew that I was doing a karanga for our opening Powhiri procedure. I was a bit nervous because I was doing it in front of a lot of people - including people from MAGS and the Unitech staff.

Attending A Fun Japanese Event.

On Saturday, 23 November, a group of year 9 and 10 Rutherford Students from the Japanese classes attended a language day at Auckland University, run by the North Asia CAPE secondary schools conference. They got to taste Japanese tea and Matcha chocolate, learn how to write calligraphy, watch a Taiko drumming performance and listen to the history of kanji in Japan, as well as learn about manga. The day was educational, but mostly it was a lot of fun.
