5 years a Librarian

5 years a Librarian Zarea Kaweroa, Katherine Searle, Campbell Talaepa, Samir Ali and Ilham Akhlaqi (pictured left) have all completed five years as student librarians. To celebrate, all student librarians had a special shared lunch. Daffodil Day On the 23rd of August, senior students volunteered to sell daffodils to staff and students of Mangere College. A total of $152 was collected and donated to the Cancer Society. The school received a warm letter of response from the Cancer Society: ‘The $152.00 you have raised is more than a gift of money - it is a gift of comfort, care and hope that will give crucial help to people whose lives have been affected by cancer. Thank you so very much.’ 34 Mangere College - 2017 Chinese Language Week

We have had four students complete a 10-day Voyage. All of the students have come back and said that this voyage was life changing for them. They undertook leadership roles and made connections with other students which continued after the trip had finished. One of the students came back and said that she was meeting up regularly with the friends she had made on the ship. The students enjoyed the new experiences and the challenges they faced every day. It was good for them to be pushed out of their comfort zone and to learn how to adapt to unfamiliar situations. It has opened their minds to the possibilities out there that they didn’t know existed before they began their voyage.

It has opened their minds to the possibilities out there that they didn’t know existed before they began their voyage. The students have been inspired and in return, they have passed this inspiration on to fellow students upon their return to school. We are very appreciative of the support we received from the SOA Trust and the funding we received through their connections. We also want to extend a special thank you to Don Malcolm who was instrumental in helping us source funding for our 5-day trophy challenge. Don was more than happy to assist through his own company covering a quarter of the cost of the voyage and then guiding me towards the Auckland Maritime Foundation who paid the remainder of the cost of the voyage, for which we are very grateful. Don also provided us with sleeping bags and headlights for the students. -Taryn Slee 10-day Voyage Spirit of Adventure I took ten Year 10 students on a Trophy Challenge in June this year. For all of the students, it was their first time on a ship (or even a boat) and for some, it was their first time staying away from home. 5-day Trophy Challenge The students had no idea what to expect or what was going to be expected of them. They were also placed in an environment with students who came from vastly different backgrounds and cultures. Although they were nervous at first and stayed close together, by the end of the voyage they had learned to venture out of their comfort zones and had made connections with students from other schools. Our students were challenged physically and emotionally and at times they believed that they didn’t belong on the ship with the other schools. However, by the end of the trip they were able to overcome this mindset. At the start of the trip, they believed they were incapable of completing some activities and chose not to participate. As the voyage continued, they started to realise that they were just as capable as students from other schools and their confidence grew. This was particularly evident when they were praised for their ability to do the housework (tidy up the ropes) after they had put a sail up. As one of the crew members said they were the best at it. This allowed the students to realise that they belonged on the ship, just like everyone else. The trip gave me the opportunity to see the students in a different environment and learn important things about them. It also gave the students the opportunity to learn about themselves and what they are capable of. The students are now looking ahead at the possibility of completing a 10-day voyage when they are 16 years old. - Taryn Slee Mangere College - 2017 35
