House Competition Integral to College Life

Kia ora koutou, Talofa lava, Greetings all

Term 1 is always full of activities aimed at inducting new students into college, welcoming back other students and holding college sports while the weather is still warm.  We are now well through the term so it is the opportune time to stop and reflect on some of these activities.

The Year 9 Tabloid sports aims to bond together the students from the same House.  This is a great competition with fun events on the field and in the pool, and is their first taste of what it means to earn points for their House.  Swimming sports and Athletics sports are always highlights for the college year.  Students dress up in their house colours and aim to participate as much as possible to get House points.  Our top athletes are identified and go on to compete at the Regional Athletics Competition in Palmerston North.

Many adults in the community fondly remember the House they were in when they were at college, so I thought I would share some photos from the House competitions from Term 1, as well as the House points as they presently stand.  Happy reminiscing.

Ngā mihi koutou
