Mangere College - 2018 1

The Principal's Report<br />

2018 has been a<br />

watershed year for<br />

Māngere College with<br />

changes in the staffroom,<br />

an Education Review<br />

Office report and some<br />

significant visitors to the<br />

school.<br />

The year started off with us<br />

welcoming 13 new teachers to the<br />

school. This is a significant number<br />

for us and meant a lot of change in<br />

the staffroom. They each brought<br />

a different level of experience<br />

from first year teachers to very<br />

experienced teachers and each<br />

made a huge contribution during<br />

the year.<br />

One of our key areas to focus on<br />

this year has been to improve our<br />

teaching practice using a new<br />

appraisal process and the Teachers<br />

Council’s new professional standards<br />

and code of conduct for teachers.<br />

This work was reflected in a<br />

comment that ERO made during<br />

their visit when they said that a<br />

strength of the school was “the<br />

capability and dedication of the<br />

teaching team who are open<br />

to learning and committed to<br />

improving professional practice.”<br />

These two aspects - being open to<br />

learning and improving practice<br />

- are very important to me. In our<br />

work: we all make mistakes and<br />

perfection is an unrealistic goal<br />

but we can always learn from our<br />

experiences and strive to get better<br />

in what we do each day.<br />

Another important aspect of the<br />

school that was commented on by<br />

ERO is the environment that we<br />

create for our students around the<br />

school. ERO said that this strength is<br />

the “inclusive and positive learning<br />

and working environment where<br />

students’ diverse languages, cultures<br />

and identities are fostered and<br />

their religions respected”. It is this<br />

environment that our students need<br />

and deserve to be able to learn<br />

successfully and to achieve to their<br />

potential.<br />

This was the first ERO review during<br />

my time at the school and it was<br />

very rewarding to see the work that<br />

we have been doing over the past<br />

three years being recognised in<br />

this way. As well as commenting<br />

2 Mangere College - 2018<br />

on the quality of the teaching<br />

staff and the environment of the<br />

school they also made reference to<br />

these changes when they said “The<br />

school’s leadership and strategic<br />

change management processes<br />

and practices, together with the<br />

prioritising of Māori success and<br />

student wellbeing, are effectively<br />

contributing to achieving equity<br />

and excellence and the acceleration<br />

of learning.”<br />

Of course they also pointed out<br />

areas for improvement and the<br />

most important of these for me<br />

is the achievement of our Māori<br />

students. We are not doing well<br />

enough in this area as a school<br />

and it is something that I am<br />

committed to changing. This<br />

school should be a place where all<br />

students succeed and we need to<br />

continue to work hard to ensure<br />

that our results are equitable as well<br />

as excellent.<br />

At prizegiving this term we<br />

announced our Student Leaders for<br />

2019. This is an excellent group of<br />

young people who are excited about<br />

leading the school and having an<br />

impact in the wider community as<br />

well. So many of our students are<br />

passionate about the society they<br />

live in and particularly their local<br />

community of Māngere. This was<br />

particularly evident to me when<br />

we hosted two politicians, the<br />

Speaker of the House Trevor Mallard<br />

and Minister Aupito William Sio,<br />

to launch a virtual reality tour of<br />

parliament. This gave our students<br />

a chance to have their voices heard<br />

by national politicians and to ask<br />

questions of them. They certainly<br />

expressed their views strongly.<br />

Allowing students to have a voice<br />

in the running of the school<br />

through our different councils is an<br />

ongoing focus for us at school. We<br />

want to provide all students with<br />

an opportunity to grow their own<br />

leadership and develop into the<br />

future leaders for our community.<br />

We have continued to work<br />

closely with our local schools in<br />

our Community of Learning, the<br />

Māngere Kahui Ako, which I am<br />

proud to lead. We have a vision as<br />

a group of schools of strengthening<br />

education in the Māngere<br />

community and of working together<br />

for the benefit of our students. We<br />

will see more positive outcomes<br />

of this collaboration in the years to<br />

come.<br />

Of course the year has not been<br />

without its difficulties and the loss<br />

of a student and an ex student<br />

during Term 3 was a real shock<br />

to the school community and a<br />

traumatic time for students and<br />

staff. At Māngere College we talk<br />

a lot about the importance of our<br />

<strong>MC</strong> family and when you lose two<br />

of your family it affects everyone.<br />

What was important to me was<br />

seeing the strength of the family to<br />

pull together and overcome these<br />

difficult times.<br />

I was humbled by the strength and<br />

resilience of our students and how<br />

they supported each other and<br />

I took pride in seeing the school<br />

come together to face this together.<br />

Our strength as a school is in the<br />

community that we have and the<br />

way that we can face difficult issues<br />

together and support each other<br />

through difficult times.<br />

6 Mangere College - 2018

Haere rā e te piki kōtuku,<br />

Hone Green<br />

It is with great sadness<br />

that the Māngere College<br />

community has received<br />

the news of the recent<br />

passing of Matua Hone<br />

Green in Opotiki, and<br />

this deep loss cannot go<br />

without acknowledgment.<br />

Hone started at Māngere College<br />

in 1972, the year the school was<br />

officially opened, as an Assistant<br />

Teacher in Social Studies, English,<br />

Māori and Polynesian Studies. In<br />

1973 he was appointed Head of the<br />

Māori Department and in 1974, the<br />

Dean of Form 3.<br />

Hone was integral in establishing Te<br />

Reo and Tikanga Māori at the school<br />

and promoting it in the wider<br />

community, as well as exposing<br />

the students to a world outside<br />

their own backyard. This resulted<br />

in Te Reo being taught by Māori<br />

students to Arahanga Intermediate<br />

classes and at night school for the<br />

community. The Māori Club went<br />

on the road which took them to<br />

Tongariro and Opotiki in 1974 and<br />

the South Island in 1981.<br />

Hone also played an important role<br />

in setting up the Polynesian Club<br />

which grew in numbers to 180<br />

under his guidance and travelled<br />

the North Island. In 1976, the<br />

club gained 1st place in the first<br />

ever Auckland Secondary Schools’<br />

Polyfest at Hillary College and again<br />

in 1977 when Māngere College was<br />

the host school. At the time both<br />

schools were acknowledged for their<br />

leadership in multiculturalism.<br />

Hone went on leave to complete<br />

his University Studies in 1977,<br />

returning in 1979. Then in 1988,<br />

he left Māngere College to take<br />

up the position of Principal at Nga<br />

Tapuwae College.<br />

In the 1977 magazine, the following<br />

was written of Matua Hone Green:<br />

‘His voice is seldom raised, he is<br />

never seen posturing or gloomy<br />

and there is no entry for ‘cruelty’<br />

or ‘whining’ in his dictionary. His<br />

strength is of an unassuming kind,<br />

a blend of spirit and experience,<br />

of being a good community man,<br />

one who will take a microphone<br />

without rehearsal and be the master<br />

of ceremonies or a guitarist and join<br />

the chorus. With equal willingness,<br />

he will pick up a shovel and help<br />

pour concrete into a neighbour’s<br />

foundations, he is a man of two<br />

cultures - a true New Zealander. ‘<br />

Hone Green was a mighty figure,<br />

a man of mana and quiet dignity.<br />

When he spoke one felt compelled<br />

to listen. He was one of the <strong>MC</strong><br />

greats and will be sorely missed. The<br />

Māngere College family remembers<br />

him with love and offers deepest<br />

condolences to his whanau.<br />

L-R: Erica Wilson and Jocelyn Maitland<br />

jocelyn<br />

maitland<br />

Jocelyn Maitland has<br />

been the mainstay of the<br />

Māngere College office for<br />

almost 40 years.<br />

In that time she has worked<br />

alongside five principals, including<br />

the founding principal, Ivan<br />

Armstrong, and supported countless<br />

staff members and students.<br />

They have all benefitted from her<br />

dedication and diligence.<br />

Jocelyn’s responsibilities have<br />

been many and varied –performing<br />

secretarial duties for the principal<br />

and others, as well as making sure<br />

that students were outfitted in the<br />

<strong>MC</strong> uniform, operating the school<br />

stationery shop, managing the piles<br />

of photocopying staff required,<br />

completing administrative tasks<br />

for the Board, collecting money for<br />

various activities, organising the<br />

management of the school vans -<br />

the list could go on and on.<br />

Jocelyn has been essential to<br />

the smooth running of the office<br />

and the school. Her superb<br />

organisational skills and super<br />

efficiency have meant that she was<br />

always one step ahead of us and<br />

those who hadn’t followed proper<br />

procedures knew that Jocelyn will<br />

always catch us out.<br />

Efficient she may be but Jocelyn<br />

has a lighter side as well. When<br />

there are gales of laughter<br />

emanating from the office we knew<br />

that she was probably the instigator<br />

of the hilarity. Jocelyn is also the<br />

fountain of knowledge of just about<br />

every sport you could mention and<br />

Melbourne Cup Day would not have<br />

been the same without her.<br />

Jocelyn will be greatly missed. It<br />

is the end of an era for Māngere<br />

College. We thank her most<br />

sincerely for her dedication and<br />

commitment to the college, its’ staff<br />

and students.<br />

erica wilson<br />

After a wide variety of<br />

teaching experiences<br />

including that of visiting<br />

teacher, Erica Wilson<br />

joined the staff at<br />

Māngere College in 1997<br />

as Guidance Counsellor.<br />

In 1999 she was instrumental in<br />

setting up the Achievement Centre<br />

at Māngere College, one of few<br />

Alternative Education Centres that<br />

operate from within a school setting<br />

and which has since been held up<br />

as a model for other such ventures<br />

in the community.<br />

It is due to Erica’s vision and<br />

leadership as Manager of the<br />

Achievement Centre that many<br />

young people have been able to<br />

re-enter mainstream education<br />

and realise their potential. She<br />

has created a welcoming and safe<br />

environment there where students<br />

can work independently as well<br />

as take part in scheduled classes<br />

for their year level. The centre<br />

epitomises the concept of the <strong>MC</strong><br />

family.<br />

For the work she did with students<br />

and families of the Achievement<br />

Centre at <strong>MC</strong>, Erica received a Local<br />

Hero Award in 2017 as part of he<br />

Kiwibank New Zealander of the Year<br />

Awards.<br />

Not only have students benefitted<br />

from Erica’s care and expertise<br />

but also staff, who have valued<br />

her support, wise advice and good<br />

humour.<br />

We thank Erica and offer her our<br />

best wishes as she leaves <strong>MC</strong> and<br />

look forward to hearing about her<br />

travels and adventures.<br />

For 19 years, Walter Brown served our school as the Community<br />

Liaison Officer.<br />

He helped bridge the gap between school and home for students and<br />

parents alike. If not seen, one could hear Walter playing his Cook Island<br />

drums either in the staffroom or in his office. He was such a valued member<br />

of staff that he was allowed to have his very own carpark space, complete<br />

with bright orange cones.<br />

Mr Brown is now happily enjoying his retirement<br />

Kathryn Barclay left Māngere College during term 1 – she has been<br />

the school guidance counsellor and lead<br />

the Student Services team for the last 11 years.<br />

Kathryn was instrumental in setting up the It’s Not OK – saying no to family<br />

violence campaign that the school has been involved with over the last five<br />

years. She has supported many of our students during her time here. Kathryn<br />

has moved to a lecturing position in the counselling degree at the Manukau<br />

Institute of Technology.<br />

We say farewell to Heather, our Nurse who worked at <strong>MC</strong> for 10<br />

years.<br />

Heather enjoyed being able to share in the lives of the young people and she<br />

also loved being part of the <strong>MC</strong> family.<br />

She is now working as a Clinical Nurse Specialist Youth Health at Counties<br />

Manukau Health. Heather’s new role involves supporting school nurses who<br />

work in school-based health care in South Auckland.<br />

We say farewell to Thomas Pearson, Music teacher who worked at<br />

Māngere College for almost 7 years.<br />

We would like to thank him for his work promoting music and musicianship<br />

at <strong>MC</strong> and for his involvement behind the sound boards at Performing Arts<br />

events. Thomas leaves us to live and work on the North Island’s sunny East<br />

Coast.<br />

Fiona is leaving <strong>MC</strong> after being here for 4 years as a school Nurse.<br />

fiona<br />

fouche<br />

She is sad to leave but has enjoyed being part of the supportive and caring<br />

<strong>MC</strong> family. Fiona has loved working with the students and feels privileged to<br />

be a small part of their <strong>MC</strong> experience.<br />

She is moving to an eye correction clinic in Mt Wellington.<br />

chantal<br />

cullinane<br />

Chantal Cullinane has worked at Māngere College for the last 3<br />

years as one of the part time Registered Nurses in the Health Clinic.<br />

She left at the beginning of term 2 to take up a nursing position at Wesley<br />

College. She was a much appreciated member of our nursing team and we<br />

wish her well for the future.<br />

piri<br />

tamihana<br />

rowena<br />

o’neil<br />

Piri Tamihana came to Māngere College as a temporary specialised<br />

teacher aide mid-year in 2015.<br />

He coached the 2nd XV rugby boys in 2016 before turning his attention to<br />

the 1st XV. Two weeks into term 2, he decided to put his young daughters<br />

first and bid farewell to full-time teacher aiding. His encouraging words<br />

towards students and staff alike will be missed.<br />

Rowena O’Neil finished as our Operations Manager in February to<br />

move to Canterbury to be closer to her family.<br />

Despite only being in the role for a short time Rowena made a significant<br />

contribution to the school, helping with the day to day running and<br />

improving systems to make it easier for teachers to do their jobs.<br />

Mangere College - 2018 9

Head Boy's Report<br />

First of all, I would like to<br />

give praise to our Heavenly<br />

Father for his continued<br />

love and guidance<br />

throughout this year<br />

and our many years of<br />

education. 2018 is slowly<br />

coming to an end and<br />

what a year it has been.<br />

As year 9s, we arrived at Māngere<br />

College with different backgrounds<br />

and different life experiences. It<br />

took some of us time to warm to<br />

each other but the years of ups and<br />

downs, tears and laughter, good<br />

times and bad have brought us<br />

closer. And now we have made it,<br />

together as ‘family’.<br />

While at <strong>MC</strong>, we have gained<br />

new experiences and expanded<br />

our learning capacity. We have<br />

strengthened old friendships and<br />

forged new friendships.<br />

We have shared many moments<br />

this year, like during Polyfest where<br />

we demonstrated our love and<br />

passion for our own cultures and the<br />

cultures of others.<br />

In our sports teams: Volleyball,<br />

Soccer, Netball, Touch, Tag, Rugby<br />

etc - win or lose - we remained<br />

humble and grateful.<br />

I will miss the school atmosphere,<br />

the feeling of being at home when<br />

you walk through those gates and<br />

the diversity of culture which is like<br />

no other.<br />

Next year some of you will move<br />

up to Year 12 and embark on your<br />

second year of NCEA doing Level 2,<br />

where things will get more difficult<br />

than they are now. Others of you will<br />

be moving up to Year 13 and your<br />

final year in high school, where the<br />

staff and younger students will look<br />

to you, to help lead the school.<br />

After we leave school, we are free to<br />

do what we want with our lives and<br />

to make our mark on this world. This<br />

‘...the feeling of<br />

being at home<br />

when you walk<br />

through those<br />

gates...’<br />

is what our 13 years of school have<br />

been preparing us for.<br />

I commend those who have worked<br />

hard, stayed on task and have<br />

consistently been focused on their<br />

learning till the end, in spite of the<br />

obstacles. I especially congratulate<br />

those whose outstanding efforts<br />

were recognised during our prize<br />

giving. You should be proud of<br />

yourselves.<br />

I thank the Māngere College<br />

teachers and staff for their patience<br />

and support over the years.<br />

Thank you for giving up your spare<br />

time and pushing us to achieve the<br />

best we could.<br />

All of you have played a positive part<br />

in our education and our growth<br />

these past few years.<br />

There is nothing we can say or do<br />

that will appropriately show our<br />

gratitude for all you have done but<br />

I hope you realise how much we<br />

appreciate you.<br />

To you, our parents and caregivers,<br />

without whose wise words,<br />

dedication and provision, have<br />

helped us to make it to the end of<br />

Year 13, I say thank you.<br />

On behalf of the student body,<br />

I honour you all for the love and<br />

guidance you have given us.<br />

And now my brothers and sisters of<br />

<strong>MC</strong>, thank you all for the memories<br />

and strong friendships we have built<br />

and for a fun and exciting few years.<br />

It has been worth it.<br />

I am grateful to have spent these<br />

five years with you and I hope our<br />

paths will cross again.<br />

I hope all of the seniors do well<br />

in their exams and whatever you<br />

choose to do next year.<br />

I have so much love and respect for<br />

you all.<br />

When we walk out those gates, I<br />

ask you all to go out and make your<br />

presence felt in the world.<br />

Do what you love and love what you<br />

do.<br />

Remain hungry, remain humble,<br />

remain grateful and continue to<br />

seek the heights!<br />

- Mark Leleifi<br />

‘Let your beauty in our cultural traditions and costumes<br />

define who you are and where you come from.’<br />

Kia Orana and warm greetings from<br />

the Māngere College Cook Islands<br />

Polyfest Group 2018.<br />

Māngere College Cook Islands<br />

group started this Polyfest year<br />

with humility and ended with an<br />

awesome win.<br />

A very organized cultural committee<br />

consisted of families who were<br />

supportive, dedicated and loving.<br />

Through their commitment and<br />

long nights, they raised enough<br />

funds to ensure we had amazing<br />

costumes.<br />

We were the overall winners<br />

at Polyfest 2018 Competitive<br />

Section for the Cook Islands<br />

stage again!<br />

It was the first time in Polyfest<br />

history for our <strong>MC</strong> Cook<br />

Islands group to win all of<br />

these prizes which was very<br />

humbling.<br />

We were also<br />

privileged to<br />

perform at the<br />

Cook Islands Village for<br />

Pacifica, and as a result<br />

for winning the<br />

Costume section,<br />

our Costume Team<br />

were lucky to get the<br />

Display Hut- Fare<br />

Pora to showcase our<br />

winning costumes<br />

and Arts and Crafts.<br />

We would like to<br />

extend our sincere<br />

gratitude to the Cook Islands Village<br />

Co-ordinator Bernard Tairea for<br />

giving us this wonderful opportunity.<br />

Finally, I praise God for his many<br />

blessings, our students and teacher<br />

in charge Tai Uamaki of <strong>MC</strong> for your<br />

patience and resilience. We wish our<br />

year 13’s the very best for your future<br />

endeavours, our team, our family<br />

and friends for your<br />

never-ending love<br />

and support<br />

through the<br />

composition,<br />

choreography,<br />

costumes<br />

and financial<br />

assistance in<br />

whatever way big<br />

ASB Polyfest is a big part of Māngere<br />

College, many cultures are involved<br />

in this festival.<br />

I am Rehia Patuwai a Year 12 Māori<br />

Student here at Māngere College.<br />

I have participated in Polyfest for<br />

3 years now. Polyfest has changed<br />

throughout the years. Polyfest is a<br />

competition which encourages you<br />

to be the best at what you do.<br />

From my perspective, Polyfest is<br />

a festival that brings all cultures<br />

together, to laugh, to cry and to<br />

enjoy performances.<br />

It is an opportunity for friends<br />

and families to witness the hard<br />

work that performers put into<br />

the performances. As a performer<br />

it’s inspirational, it gives me an<br />

opportunity to show my family<br />

who I am and it gives me a chance<br />

to show people how much I love<br />

kapa haka, my culture and how<br />

much I want to make my whanau<br />

proud.<br />

This year our kapa haka was mostly<br />

year 9 and I am so proud of them.<br />

Our kapa performed on the stage<br />

in front of many, representing <strong>MC</strong>,<br />

and enjoyed themselves. That’s the<br />

best part about it. So I encourage<br />

all to join the kapa next year to<br />

experience standing on the kapa<br />

haka stage at Polyfest a part of the<br />

<strong>MC</strong> ropu.<br />

Niuean Group<br />

The Māngere College<br />

Niuean Group was a<br />

success.<br />

It was a hard year for me. Not only<br />

because we almost didn’t have a<br />

group, but because it was very hard<br />

to take the role of being a leader<br />

because I had other responsibilities.<br />

Other than that, I still got a group<br />

together to compete in Polyfest<br />

2018.<br />

Throughout our rehearsals, it was a<br />

relief to see how many people were<br />

committed to our group and I loved<br />

how much passion, love, and energy<br />

the students had for the culture.<br />

Picking our leaders for this group<br />

was a hard decision but at the end, I<br />

chose Hannah-Lily Tohilima-Franklin<br />

because I saw how much love she<br />

had for her culture, and seeing her<br />

take charge of everyone made me<br />

want to make her a leader because I<br />

needed someone bossy. She is also a<br />

good leader in other areas of school<br />

so I was confident with her being a<br />

leader for our group.<br />

Coming to the last week of practices<br />

it was emotional knowing all our<br />

hard work is coming to an end, and<br />

it was a blessing to see what we had<br />

22 Mangere College - 2018<br />

achieved in the short time we had<br />

together. Our last run through our<br />

performance was the best I’ve seen.<br />

All I saw was hard work from all<br />

students.<br />

The morning of Polyfest we all had<br />

to be at school before 6:30 am, I<br />

was glad to see our performers up<br />

and ready looking really amazing.<br />

Just being together that morning<br />

was an experience I’ll never forget.<br />

Seeing everyone encouraging each<br />

other saying it’s going to be alright<br />

or just hyping everyone up was a<br />

big highlight for me. The dances we<br />

performed were; Entrance, Ta Me<br />

(Action Song), Meke, Lologo Tapu<br />

(Church hymn), Takalo (War Dance)<br />

and Exit. Every dance we did was<br />

done to the highest standard. I<br />

can’t explain how proud I am to be<br />

a part of the Māngere College Niue<br />

group. All the blood, sweat and tears<br />

that had gone into rehearsing just<br />

for that one day was all worth it in<br />

the end.<br />

foremost, I would like to give thanks<br />

to our Heavenly Father for his<br />

everlasting love, support<br />

and guidance throughout<br />

our Samoan group 2018.<br />

The theme for Polyfest this<br />

year was ‘Thread the fibres<br />

of humanity, Thread the<br />

fibres of spiritual wellbeing,<br />

Bind together<br />

the essence of cultural<br />

identity, Weave together<br />

the diversity of cultural<br />

awareness.’ ‘Feso’ota’i<br />

le agaga, Maua’a i<br />

lou fa’asinomaga,<br />

Lalaga i le matagofie<br />

o aganu’u eseese.’<br />

This represented who<br />

we are as people and<br />

defines our culture and<br />

heritage.<br />

Our Samoan group went through<br />

the same process as previous years.<br />

We started with trials that were held<br />

in the auditorium. Each student<br />

chooses what to perform whether it<br />

be singing a song, doing a dance or<br />

both, but in the Samoan language<br />

or culture.<br />

Our group this year was blessed<br />

with intelligent and passionate<br />

tutors who sacrificed precious<br />

time for our benefit: Iulia Ioane,<br />

Melania Agaimalo, Siata Ah-Chong,<br />

Musuiaigaatoa Tapu, Numia<br />

Toomata, Clarence Soti and Mike<br />

Pio, who worked alongside our loyal<br />

and dedicated teachers Mr Fesulua’i,<br />

Mrs Smith, Ms Nu’usavili and Mrs<br />

Ah Sam. We are very grateful for<br />

their continuous support and<br />

management leading up to Polyfest<br />

2018.<br />

The Samoan group was also under<br />

the leadership of Jane Malau’ulu,<br />

Jasmine Strickland, Esther Meleke,<br />

Holly Rapana, Sesiona Faamausili,<br />

Hannah Pio, Tai Perez, Paul Lesoa,<br />

Italy Nglam and Ezra Salu.<br />

On the third week of school, we<br />

started rehearsals. Beforehand, we<br />

would always start with a greeting<br />

and prayer. For the first few days<br />

when practices started, the leaders<br />

had to come up with moves for<br />

the Sasa due to not knowing if the<br />

tutors were going to turn up to<br />

Mangere College - 2018 23

practices for the first few weeks.<br />

Luckily our leaders had come up<br />

with a few moves to get the group<br />

started on something instead of<br />

waiting for our tutors to show up.<br />

Practices from Monday to Friday<br />

went from 3:40 pm to 06:00 pm.<br />

On Saturdays, it was from 10:00 am<br />

onwards.<br />

As weeks went by practices started<br />

getting more challenging. Students<br />

were starting to feel the pressure<br />

from the tutors and teachers<br />

were being more strict than<br />

usual, especially when it came to<br />

polishing our performance from<br />

the beginning to end. During these<br />

tough practices, we learned our<br />

Ulufale (entrance), Ma’ulu’ulu, Sasa,<br />

Pese (songs), Taualuga (final dance),<br />

Ulufafo (exit) and finally perfecting<br />

our transitions on the way.<br />

Lunchtime practices were organised<br />

to help those who were lost and<br />

slow on learning moves or the lyrics<br />

to the songs. Students knew they<br />

had to sacrifice free time and study<br />

hours to practice in order for the<br />

whole group to look like one and to<br />

be ready for when that special day<br />

comes. The intensity of practices<br />

lifted even more as students and<br />

tutors felt the performance drawing<br />

near. Although emotions were<br />

running high, we managed to<br />

remain strong and continued to<br />

push and encourage each other<br />

to overcome these barriers we<br />

encountered through our journey.<br />

The day we had prepared and<br />

practised for finally arrived. Nerves<br />

and butterflies were a common<br />

feeling backstage. We were all<br />

scared and terrified but no emotions<br />

could ever beat how nervous we<br />

all were being the sixth school to<br />

perform on Friday morning, 16th<br />

March 2018 in front of hundreds of<br />

people in the crowd. As we walked<br />

up that stage, everyone knew it<br />

was either give it your all or go<br />

home with regrets. That day we<br />

performed with all our hearts. We<br />

sang till you could barely hear our<br />

voices and dance like there was no<br />

tomorrow. That day we performed<br />

like a family and we left the stage<br />

as brothers and sisters. We walked<br />

off that stage as one. We left the<br />

stage smiling proudly due to the<br />

excitement within us and knowing<br />

that we had performed to the best<br />

of our abilities. Saturday 17th March<br />

2018 we anxiously waited for the<br />

results. Our prayers were finally<br />

answered and we were blessed with<br />

numerous placings in the categories.<br />

This year may have not been<br />

the year we took it out, but in<br />

appreciation, we all agree that this<br />

year was also another successful year<br />

for the Māngere College Samoan<br />

group. This year will be the last time<br />

the year 13s will ever experience<br />

the feeling of preparing for Polyfest<br />

and performing on the Samoan<br />

stage. But what I can say is that we<br />

year 13s will leave with our heads<br />

held high knowing that we have<br />

accomplished our duties as not only<br />

year 13s but also as leaders and that<br />

we will continue to embrace the<br />

Samoan culture.<br />

Through sweat and tears, hard work<br />

and determination, commitment<br />

and sacrifices we have made, we<br />

know that we have left behind a<br />

positive, open-minded and loving<br />

atmosphere for the future <strong>MC</strong><br />

Samoan Polyfest groups.<br />

No words can explain how thankful<br />

and appreciative we are to not only<br />

the members of this year’s group<br />

but also to our hardworking tutors<br />

and teachers. We are grateful for<br />

their continuous support, words<br />

of wisdom and their never-ending<br />

love for our group. A special<br />

acknowledgement to our leadership<br />

team and well-done on the effort<br />

you all put in. We leave Māngere<br />

College’s future Samoan group with<br />

a little advice: “There will be times<br />

where it will become too much<br />

for you and you will feel like giving<br />

up due to the pressure. You have a<br />

leadership team for a reason. They<br />

are there to help you, they are a<br />

shoulder for you to lean on when<br />

you need support. Never give up no<br />

matter what because at the end of<br />

the day it’s not just ‘I OR ME’ it’s ‘WE<br />

AS A TEAM.” We wish you all the<br />

best of luck and always remember:<br />

Refugee Activities<br />


On Tuesday the 19th of<br />

June, some other refugee<br />

students from Māngere<br />

College and I went to the<br />

Henderson Trust Stadium<br />

to play some sports.<br />

It was Refugee Olympics Day so we<br />

all played a lot of different sports<br />

like basketball, hockey, and football.<br />

Some other students from Mixit<br />

prepared a dance. We all really<br />

enjoyed and it was fun playing<br />

sports and making new refugee<br />

friends from other schools.<br />

- Madina Salam Khel<br />



DINNER<br />

A great night was had by<br />

all at the Refugee Careers<br />

Dinner.<br />

This is the third year that we have<br />

held this event at school and it<br />

has been well received by families<br />

and friends. Providers from AUT,<br />

University of Auckland and MIT<br />

came and informed us about<br />

opportunities and scholarships<br />

at their tertiary institutes. Former<br />

students came and Ilham Akhlaqi<br />

spoke about her first year at AUT.<br />

We also had an inspiring guest<br />

speaker who spoke about<br />

overcoming barriers to achieve in<br />

education.<br />

Mangere College - 2018 27

We sold apples for 50 cents, and<br />

the sandwiches were sold for $1.<br />

We did a fantastic job and we are<br />

doing this because we are trying to<br />

help people in the Pacific Islands<br />

who had their homes damaged by<br />

Cyclone Gita and also new refugees<br />

in New Zealand to buy tools for<br />

their gardens at home. This will<br />

help the families stay healthy and<br />

safe including the new refugees in<br />

Auckland.<br />



On Wednesday the 21st<br />

of February at Māngere<br />

College we made<br />

sandwiches at lunchtime<br />

for the students at school.<br />

Firstly we spread the butter on the<br />

bread and the sandwiches had<br />

tomato, lettuce, sliced cucumber,<br />

grated carrot and cheese on them.<br />

We sliced the tomato and the<br />

lettuce. We had to cut the lettuce<br />

small so we could make it equal for<br />

everyone.<br />

Refugees are important to Red Cross<br />

and to everyone in our fundraising<br />

team. We were helping them and<br />

we needed <strong>MC</strong> students to help. I<br />

thought to myself, ‘please, people<br />

come and help make a difference’.<br />

I was glad that we made $30 on the<br />

first day, but we needed to make<br />

more. The refugees were going to be<br />

so happy when we could give them<br />

the garden tools.<br />

We did this for three days, and we<br />

raised $129 by the end of it. It was<br />

good to see students supporting<br />

this fundraising event. We needed<br />

everyone’s help and we are the <strong>MC</strong><br />

Family so we were able to ‘Seek The<br />

Heights’ and help refugees to be<br />

healthy at home.<br />

- Oumaima Ahmat Abdallah<br />


Fortunately, I have been involved in the AUT mentoring programme for the last two<br />

years, and I had a mentor who guided and helped me prepare for school assessments,<br />

goal setting and have better control on my career.<br />

Having the guidance,<br />

encouragement and support of a<br />

trusted and experienced mentor<br />

provided me a broad range of<br />

benefits, which ultimately lead to<br />

improve my performance in my<br />

assessments and exams. In addition,<br />

28 Mangere College - 2018<br />

this programme helped me improve<br />

my communication skills and<br />

self confidence. This programme<br />

provided an opportunity to be<br />

challenged, supported, explore my<br />

career options and plan for future<br />

actions. I was very grateful to be<br />

involved in this programme and<br />

would like to continue with it next<br />

year as I benefited a lot from it.<br />

The Duke of Edinburgh is a<br />

youth awards programme<br />

that recognises<br />

adolescents and young<br />

adults for completing a<br />

series of self-improvement<br />

exercises.<br />

It challenges young people to<br />

dream big and discover their<br />

potential. In the programme there<br />

are three levels; Bronze being the<br />

first, Silver being the second and<br />

Gold being the last.<br />

We had 18 students participating in<br />

the Duke of Edinburgh programme<br />

this year. We were doing the bronze<br />

award that takes a total of six<br />

months to complete. The goals for<br />

the award were to learn a new skill<br />

(or develop an existing one), get<br />

physically active, give service to their<br />

communities, and take part in an<br />

adventure.<br />

The aim of the Duke of Edinburgh<br />

Award is to help challenge young<br />

students to leave their comfort<br />

zones. It helped us build confidence<br />

in ourselves and have greater<br />

resilience.<br />

The most exciting part of the<br />

award was going on an adventure<br />

where we had to walk up to the<br />

Pinnacles Hut in the Kauaeranga<br />

Valley, located all the way in the<br />

Coromandel. We learnt about the<br />

important equipment we had to<br />

take, the clothing and shoes we had<br />

to wear in certain environments and<br />

where we were going to walk.<br />

The walk turned out to be more<br />

exciting once we started the hike.<br />

It took three to four hours to get to<br />

our destination.<br />

These 14 students have<br />

completed the bronze<br />

section of the Duke of<br />

On the first day of the hike,<br />

there were a lot of stairs which<br />

made the walk harder and more<br />

challenging, but with the support<br />

and encouragement from the Duke<br />

of Edinburgh team, we all managed<br />

to keep going. The place we stayed<br />

in was a bit cold and we had to<br />

eat from already packaged food.<br />

Although it was challenging and<br />

hard, we all pulled through and<br />

came out of our comfort zone.<br />

After that experience, I learnt how<br />

to survive in certain environments<br />

and how to read a map. Personally, I<br />

also learnt what difficult things my<br />

body can take and how self-esteem<br />

can really help me in challenging<br />

situations in life.<br />

Well done to everyone who<br />

completed this award and who<br />

committed to the adventure. Also a<br />

big thank you to the teachers and<br />

staff who organised this opportunity<br />

for us. Thank you very much.<br />

Library<br />

Author Helen Tau’au Filisi<br />

The school library plays a<br />

huge role in our school. It<br />

is integral to the teaching<br />

and learning process.<br />

This year has been another<br />

amazing, yet successful year for our<br />

phenomenal student librarians.<br />

We have had more and more<br />

students wanting to become<br />

librarians. Our collaborative student<br />

librarian group works alongside<br />

Mrs. Kumar and Ms. Blackwood<br />

to ensure that all members of the<br />

school have equitable access to<br />

books, computers, equipment,<br />

research materials and a safe<br />

learning environment. All librarians<br />

are rostered on once a week to<br />

complete duties, either sitting<br />

behind the issue desk, clearing and<br />

shelving books, being in charge of<br />

the workroom or serving our peers<br />

who need assistance.<br />

Throughout this year our library<br />

has been a happy, busy place with<br />

many events such as celebrating<br />

the cultural language weeks. For<br />

Samoan Language Week, Mrs<br />

Kumar dressed our mannequins in<br />

beautiful Samoan attire to showcase<br />

the traditional costumes as well as<br />

setting out display books to capture<br />

student interest in learning about<br />

the different cultures and languages.<br />

This happens for all other language<br />

weeks including Tongan, Cook Island<br />

and Māori. During lunchtimes the<br />

library runs cultural activities.<br />

For Māori Language Week, students<br />

came in and made poi. This helps<br />

engage students to participate in<br />

celebrating the importance of the<br />

diverse cultures in our school.<br />

During Samoan Language Week<br />

the library hosted a special author<br />

visit. We were fortunate enough<br />

to have author Helen Tau’au Filisi<br />

and Samoan Translator Tofilau Fritz<br />

Filisi visit with their inspiring and<br />

informative talk.<br />

Every year the library is responsible<br />

for supporting and helping to<br />

raise money for cancer awareness.<br />

Librarians come in the morning to<br />

sell daffodils around the school for<br />

Daffodil Day. This year we raised<br />

$430.00.<br />

The library is always a welcoming<br />

place for everyone. Each year we<br />

have our Intermediate students<br />

from schools such as Viscount, Koru,<br />

Sir Douglas Bader, Robertson Road<br />

and Māngere Central come in each<br />

day to experience the astounding<br />

environment and opportunities<br />

Māngere College has to offer for<br />

their up and coming journey into<br />

secondary school. It was great to see<br />

the intermediate students surprised<br />

to see the variety of books that our<br />

library can offer.<br />

Being a student librarian is fun and<br />

enjoyable. We have the opportunity<br />

to gain responsibility, develop our<br />

work ethic and confidence to help<br />

and provide a library service for our<br />

peers and school community. It has<br />

been a great year and I’m sure the<br />

library team has many more great<br />

things planned for our library in the<br />

new year.<br />

Sports Council<br />

The Sports Council<br />

consists of an active group<br />

of students where we<br />

work together to identify<br />

several areas in which to<br />

make a difference in the<br />

school.<br />

The role of the Sports Council is<br />

to assist in the delivery of sport<br />

within Māngere College to enable<br />

all students to access a high quality<br />

sporting experience.<br />

I believe that we have helped create<br />

a successful sporting environment<br />

at Māngere College this year, which<br />

encouraged student participation,<br />

achievement and enjoyment while<br />

fostering community involvement.<br />

Towards the end of term 2, we<br />

organised a project where the<br />

school has been generously donated<br />

over 25 pairs of rugby boots for the<br />

rugby season by Best Foot Forward<br />

(a partnership with BNZ and Blues<br />

Rugby). The boots definitely allowed<br />

more students to play more rugby<br />

and made it easier for those who<br />

didn’t necessarily have a pair of their<br />

own. It was a fruitful event where<br />

we had three rugby players from the<br />

Blues team including ex <strong>MC</strong> student<br />

Ofa Tu’ungafasi among the guest<br />

speakers, with a lot of questions<br />

answered and many were inspired.<br />

In term 3, we worked alongside the<br />

Student Council to run a fun filled<br />

action packed week of sports in the<br />

school and it was a whole school<br />

event. Each of us were allocated<br />

jobs to do, as well as being given<br />

the role of organising a sport each<br />

day with the assistance of the team.<br />

There were activities across every<br />

interval and lunchtime as well as<br />

competitions, quizzes and staff<br />

vs students events. Overall, with<br />

great teamwork and better student<br />

participation each day, we were able<br />

to raise over $400 for World Vision.<br />

We also helped with the<br />

organisation and running of a<br />

Sports Awards evening where we<br />

recognised and celebrated along<br />

with students who were outstanding<br />

in their sports performances.<br />

Student Council<br />

This year the Māngere College Student Council has been doing a lot to be as active as<br />

possible around the school and the community.<br />

One of our biggest events was the<br />

Worldvision Sports Week we held<br />

here at <strong>MC</strong> for both teachers and<br />

students to enjoy.<br />

During the course of Term 2 we<br />

started planning how to fundraise.<br />

Everyone had great ideas and we<br />

all came to the conclusion that<br />

we would host a sports week with<br />

one of the days being a Teacher vs<br />

Student game day.<br />

During the rest of term 2 the<br />

Student Council teamed up with<br />

the Sports Council to work out the<br />

details of what sports we wanted<br />

and when we should have the sports<br />

week.<br />

In the beginning the Student<br />

Council was divided into small<br />

groups that would lead different<br />

‘One of our<br />

biggest events<br />

was the<br />

Worldvision<br />

Sports Week...’<br />

parts of the project; such as<br />

advertising and fundraising.<br />

The Sports Day was a great success,<br />

with both students and teachers<br />

actively competing.<br />

2018 has been a great year for<br />

the Student Council and we have<br />

managed to accomplish a lot in the<br />

course of a year.<br />

I would also like to take mention<br />

of the 2 teachers in charge of the<br />

Student Council, Ms. Ward and Mr.<br />

Earl who have been great advisors<br />

and great mentors in helping with<br />

the Student Council.<br />

Thank you all for a terrific year<br />

and let’s make sure 2019 is even<br />

better and from everyone on the<br />

Student Council thank you and<br />

may everyone have a very Merry<br />

Christmas and a Happy New Year.<br />

Health Council<br />

Māngere College Health<br />

Council is a committed<br />

team of students which<br />

aim to provide a voice<br />

for students promoting<br />

decisions and projects<br />

that affect the health<br />

and well-being of our<br />

community.<br />

Our Health Council is made up<br />

of junior and senior students<br />

who advocate on behalf of other<br />

students. The Student Health<br />

Council forms key relationships<br />

with organisations such as Healthy<br />

Families and Youthline.<br />

A key initiative with Healthy Families<br />

this year was promoting the school<br />

as a water-only school. The Health<br />

Council students design the <strong>MC</strong><br />

water bottle with the statement<br />

‘H2O is the way to go’ to encourage<br />

students to drink more water at<br />

school.<br />

‘A key<br />

initiative<br />

with Healthy<br />

Families this<br />

year was<br />

promoting<br />

the school<br />

as a<br />

water-only<br />

school.’<br />

We also run free breakfast during<br />

interval on Mondays and Thursdays<br />

at Student Services. All students<br />

are welcome to come and enjoy<br />

breakfast and socialise with other<br />

students.<br />

Cee-Jay’s<br />

Hawaiian<br />

experience<br />

O’ahu,<br />

Hawaii<br />

A lot of people think of Hawaii as a<br />

holiday destination, but for a first-timer<br />

in Hawaii it was overwhelming seeing<br />

the state that place is in.<br />

One small village had the same population as New<br />

Zealand living there. Being an ambassador for the Sea<br />

Cleaner’s association taught me about the terrible<br />

state that Hawaii is in.<br />

In one week we collected 4.1 million tonnes of rubbish.<br />

The currents in Hawaii are very strong which means<br />

that rubbish will be washed ashore. Students in local<br />

schools and teachers did not know that they had such<br />

a tragedy. Our mission was to make a change, and I<br />

think a lot of people will make changes in their lives,<br />

It was Cee-Jay’s cleaning up at her local area of Ihumatao<br />

which helped her get noticed by Sea Cleaners.<br />

Photo: Stuff<br />

not knowing that it impacts a lot of other people who<br />

see the actions they take.<br />

I came away from Hawaii with a strong purpose to raise<br />

awareness here in Auckland, New Zealand. I just want to<br />

say a special thanks to the many supporters in and out<br />

of school and especially to Sea Cleaners and Makaurau<br />

Marae.<br />

Brainwave is a charitable<br />

trust who educates<br />

students, parents and<br />

professionals about<br />

brain development from<br />

conception through<br />

the early years and into<br />

adolescence.<br />

Brainwave<br />

Workshops<br />

A child’s brain grows more in<br />

their first few years than it will<br />

at any other time in their life; we<br />

understand very clearly that early<br />

experiences can help set up strong<br />

or fragile foundations for later<br />

learning, behaviour and health.<br />

Adolescence is also a time for<br />

significant brain development.<br />

All Brainwave programmes are<br />

backed up by solid science and<br />

research and delivered at Māngere<br />

College by two educators; a teacher<br />

and a paediatric nurse with over 30<br />

years’ experience.<br />

Many students have younger<br />

siblings; some are beginning to<br />

babysit. Many will be the parents<br />

of the future. The knowledge that<br />

they absorb through this engaging,<br />

interactive programme is very<br />

empowering. Each and every one of<br />

them can make a real difference.<br />

Ask your son or daughter what they<br />

have learned. And please visit the<br />

website for more information:<br />

www.brainwave.org.nz<br />

Feedback<br />

from some Māngere College students:<br />

Very important<br />

for future<br />

generations to<br />

live a happy and<br />

healthy life.<br />

This programme<br />

has made a huge<br />

difference to me.<br />

It was good<br />

because it made<br />

me think about<br />

how I can take care<br />

of my own brain.<br />

It has made me<br />

more aware of how<br />

fragile a baby is.<br />

I loved this<br />

experience and<br />

didn’t want it to<br />

end.<br />

Pacific Islands<br />

Leaders of Tomorrow<br />

This term, some of our<br />

Year 11 students were<br />

selected to represent<br />

our school at the P.I.L.O.T<br />

(Pacific Islands Leaders of<br />

Tomorrow) programme<br />

held at Ignite College, Wiri.<br />

Around 100 students participated<br />

from several neighbouring South<br />

Auckland schools.<br />

This was a great opportunity for<br />

these <strong>MC</strong> Year 11 students to<br />

reconnect and build on their<br />

confidence and understand what<br />

their strengths are. There are many<br />

ways to navigate ‘the ocean’ for<br />

students to build on their identity<br />

and resilience and to explore the<br />

ocean currents navigate the fickle<br />

winds, traverse changing tides and<br />

to follow the plethora of secret<br />

pathways hidden in the stars.<br />

Well done to ‘Etina Kaliopasi,<br />

hosted Toko Peau #4<br />

event at Māngere College<br />

on Friday 31 August 2018.<br />

'Supporting Wellbeing'<br />

The evening was a celebration of life<br />

and TAUTOKO HAUORA (supporting<br />

well-being). Once again there was<br />

a display of art work from Māngere<br />

College students. Guest speakers<br />

included former <strong>MC</strong> students Dr<br />

Ana Justine Mesui, Salome Wright,<br />

Ernestina Maro, and Mary Aue.<br />

Amongst the performers at Toko<br />

Peau were the <strong>MC</strong> Kapahaka<br />

group, former <strong>MC</strong> student Romeny<br />

Fukofuko aka Konecs, Jacob Filipe,<br />

and one of our current teachers, Mrs<br />

Telea.<br />

It was a family and community<br />

event and Matua Nuku kindly<br />

offered to have the Kapa Haka<br />

group open the event. Thank you<br />

to the school principal Mr Webb,<br />

school counsellor Mr Paul Campbell,<br />

In Kids with Character,<br />

we are developing<br />

leadership skills and<br />

growing our confidence<br />

as individuals.<br />

This group is lead by Simon<br />

Kent who works for the iSport<br />

Foundation. During our time with<br />

Kids with Character we have class<br />

sessions which teach us how to be<br />

a leader for tomorrow, we discuss<br />

our plans for the future and our<br />

careers.<br />

We also attended an iSport<br />

Foundation Leadership Day where<br />

we listened and learnt from sporting<br />

leaders such as Louisa Wall, Fiao’o<br />

Faamausili, David Letele, Mike<br />

McGuire, Richie McCaw, and others.<br />

David Letele (aka The Brown Butta<br />

Bean) shared his story and taught<br />

us not to let excuses get in the way<br />

of us achieving great things, and<br />

most of the speakers taught us<br />

the importance of making good<br />

choices and how that helped<br />

them be successful.<br />

The Kids with Character group is<br />

helping us gain confidence and<br />

the ability to face problems headon<br />

and solve them efficiently.<br />

Some of our Year 12 Business students at the ‘Business is Awesome’ workshop<br />

Commerce Department<br />

This year has been an exciting year for the Commerce Department.<br />

In Term 1, our Year 12 Business<br />

students were given the opportunity<br />

to attend a workshop organised by<br />

the Rotary Club called ‘Business is<br />

Awesome’.<br />

Ten Year 12 students took part in<br />

a whole day workshop where they<br />

were grouped with students from<br />

other schools. This gave our students<br />

exposure to working with other<br />

students to come up with an idea<br />

for making a product, marketing it<br />

and finally selling it. At the end of<br />

the day, the winning team included<br />

our students, Taylah Robinson and<br />

Adrienne Lavea.<br />

commerce trip to wellington<br />

The Wellington Trip was<br />

full of learning experiences<br />

for our senior students.<br />

We flew to Wellington and for a<br />

few of our students, it was their<br />

first flight ever. We stayed in a<br />

hotel, and for many that was<br />

also a new experience. For most<br />

students, it was also their first<br />

time visiting Wellington. During<br />

the trip, we visited the Reserve<br />

Bank and learnt how and where<br />

money is manufactured, how<br />

money works in the market, the<br />

OCR and interest rates. We also<br />

visited Parliament House, sat in<br />

the debating chamber and saw<br />

questions and answers debated.<br />

We also visited Te Papa museum<br />

and students had the freedom<br />

to see the museum at their own<br />

pace. They enjoyed Peter Jackson’s<br />

wartime display. Lastly, we had<br />

a city tour and students also did<br />

some shopping.<br />

rainbows End<br />

adventure<br />

Our Year 11 Business<br />

students went to<br />

Rainbow’s End.<br />

This trip was based on their<br />

assessment about Human<br />

Resources. They did some research<br />

work first and then spent the rest<br />

of the day on rides and other fun<br />

activities.<br />

Young<br />

Enterprise<br />

Scheme<br />

This year we had some very exciting business<br />

ventures and products. The businesses developed<br />

by students were all a great success.<br />

‘manea aqua’<br />

group<br />

One business group<br />

with the company name<br />

‘Manea Aqua’ worked with<br />

Auckland City Council and<br />

created a fish habitat for<br />

Tararata Stream which is<br />

located near our school.<br />

Students created a fish habitat from recycled<br />

pallets and used cement slabs. They sold each<br />

habitat to Auckland City Council for $150.<br />

They also got $100 from SEED Funding for<br />

their excellent performance in presenting their<br />

business idea (called a ‘pitch’).<br />

Selling their product at the Night Market at<br />

Manurewa High School are Daisy, Lydia, Samira<br />

and Hannah.<br />

‘DHLS’ Group<br />

DHLS had 6 members in<br />

their group. They created<br />

neck warmers from travel<br />

pillows. Auckland Airport<br />

collects all of the travel<br />

pillows that tourists leave<br />

behind at the airport.<br />

They are collected by ‘ME Family<br />

Services’ and Peter Sykes who is the<br />

CEO of the company and also one of<br />

our mentors who provided us with<br />

used travel pillows.<br />

The students altered the product<br />

and developed neck warmers from<br />

them. They used their own cultural<br />

patterned material and made covers<br />

for the neck warmers. They then<br />

created their own wheat bags and<br />

attached them to the neck warmers.<br />

Year 11 & 12<br />

market days<br />

Students successfully<br />

undertook their market day.<br />

They learnt how to make a business<br />

plan and carry out business<br />

activities. They carried out their<br />

own survey of the product and<br />

analysed it. They also learnt how to<br />

carry out the market day with full<br />

responsibility and independence<br />

as well as working as a group. Over<br />

the year students carried out two<br />

business activities and made profits<br />

for their business. They were able to<br />

donate part of their profits. Year 11<br />

also did their market day and made<br />

profits.<br />

I wish all my year 13 students best<br />

of luck and hope that they have<br />

bright and fruitful futures.<br />

lifts strands of her hair.<br />

At this very moment, she’s standing<br />

alone thinking about how wonderful<br />

and remarkable this life can be.<br />

Her red heels duplicate the colour<br />

painted on her lips and attracts the<br />

attention of her black Adidas t-shirt.<br />

Her ripped jeans favour the public’s<br />

tastes and her smile is brighter than<br />

the stars in the sky. Her cosy coat<br />

delivers more comfort and wraps<br />

her warm from the bristling wind.<br />

People see her as Rapunzel, not<br />

because of some evil stepmother,<br />

or because she was trapped up in<br />

a castle but because of the long<br />

glowing hair that brings out the<br />

beauty in her. Her eyes turn lighter<br />

brown when it attracts the sun, until<br />

one night when she was just freely<br />

walking to her house she witnessed<br />

a scandalous matter!<br />

DUM...DUM...DUM... “WHO’S this?”<br />

“What is she doing with my<br />

HUSBAND?” “Why is she HERE ?”<br />

Difficult questions trace through<br />

her head as she drowns in a sea of<br />

grief. Her face fills with hate and<br />

torture; she can’t think but to be the<br />

bystander in this cruel view. Why?<br />

Why? How can someone who vowed<br />

will spend the rest of his years with<br />

her do something so horrible and<br />

disgusting?! She wipes the pain<br />

and tears off her face and stumbles<br />

down the stairs.<br />

She packs everything and puts all<br />

her clothes in a suitcase, and as she<br />

walks to the door, her husband runs<br />

to grab her. She drops the suitcase<br />

and the room abruptly turns quiet,<br />

he loosens his hand a bit, but this<br />

time she throws her emotion into<br />

his face before she left without a<br />

word or sound. As she drove away,<br />

her husband screams out her name<br />

with so much anger and contrite.<br />

The man she thought she loved<br />

turned out to be the monster in her<br />

dreams.<br />

About a month later, she’s living at<br />

her best friend’s house. She’s in the<br />

process of trying to forget the past<br />

and move on, but the pain always<br />

hits her.<br />

‘Her cosy coat<br />

delivers more<br />

comfort and<br />

wraps her<br />

warm from<br />

the bristling<br />

wind.’<br />

This hurt that she is carrying is<br />

so remorseful she can’t bear this<br />

burden. She feels abandoned and<br />

deceived from what’s happened,<br />

that a girl who people thought was<br />

so perfect and so beautiful would<br />

end up to be the one who suffers.<br />

After several years, she is now<br />

enjoying life with her best friend;<br />

she is trying to forgive herself for the<br />

blindness that let others betray her<br />

because sometimes a good heart<br />

cannot see the bad. She smiles<br />

through the pain and suffering but<br />

she will never forget that life is like<br />

a bicycle, to keep your balance you<br />

must keep moving on.<br />

Language).<br />

These students are on a journey with their English - beginning from little or no English at all.<br />

These poems are specifically about their countries of origin and culture. Some have chosen recipies, some have<br />

chosen a hero from their country of origin.<br />

Ko te kaupapa matua o te tau nei<br />

ko te ‘Kia kaha te reo Māori’ ā, i<br />

tērā tau ko te ‘Kia ora te reo Māori’.<br />

I rawe te wiki, i ako ngā kaiako i<br />

tētahi karakia, i tētahi waiata anō<br />

“Ehara taku toa i te toa<br />

takitahi, engari he toa<br />

“My successes are not mine<br />

alone, but of many – the greatest<br />

successes we will have are from<br />

working together.”<br />

Kapa haka has now started to<br />

progress at Māngere College, led by<br />

our new kaiako, Maehe Nuku, who<br />

is also working in the Te Reo classes<br />

with Whaea Arihana.<br />

I am Cee-Jay Maitai a Year 13 Māori<br />

Student Leader here at Māngere<br />

College. I have participated in<br />

the kapa haka throughout my<br />

schooling here at <strong>MC</strong>. Throughout<br />

my journey as a participant I have<br />

learnt to improve in all aspects<br />

and become a stronger leader<br />

within the school community. My<br />

ambition is to inspire and develop<br />

many students who come through,<br />

also to strengthen students in<br />

learning their culture. Our school<br />

was very lucky to have a haka<br />

written for our school and a haka<br />

so unique to our school, created by<br />

Matua Maehe and our students.<br />

We welcome all students to join the<br />

qi gong workshop<br />

As part of celebrating Chinese culture during<br />

Chinese Language Week, we had a Health Qi Gong<br />

workshop open to all our Juniors.<br />

Health Qi Gong is a practice to cultivate and balance qi (“life energy”).<br />

The Year 10 Mandarin class made posters to publicise the workshop<br />

and Qi Gong master David Wong came in to run the workshop.<br />

Thirty students attended the workshop, learnt foundational<br />

movements, performed a 20 minute practice and learnt about keeping<br />

our bodies and minds healthy.<br />

chopsticks<br />

workshop<br />

Food is a central part to<br />

understanding different<br />

cultures, and the way we<br />

eat is different in all our<br />

different cultures.<br />

Students learnt and practiced<br />

using chopsticks, and competed<br />

for prizes with picking up drawing<br />

pins. Pins are small and slippery,<br />

so the students had a good<br />

challenge!<br />

‘Noteworthy’ Junior Choir:<br />

Noteworthy started this<br />

year with a small group<br />

of talented Year 9 & 10<br />

students and has grown<br />

to become a tight-knit<br />

and committed group of<br />

young vocalists who have<br />

grown immensely in their<br />

short time together.<br />

Only a few months after first<br />

forming, they were invited to<br />

perform at the Māngere Town<br />

Centre Library as part of our NZ<br />

Music Month celebrations. The<br />

following month, they performed<br />

at the annual Māngere College<br />

Performing Arts Night to a packed<br />

out crowd; performing both as<br />

an individual group, and also<br />

providing vocals for multiple dance<br />

performance items. Not long after<br />

this, they took a leap of faith and<br />

entered the Vocal Group category<br />

of the prestigious Stand Up<br />

Stand Out competition, receiving<br />

excellent feedback from the judges,<br />

who commented on a ‘great<br />

performance’ that featured ‘lovely<br />

Junior Drumline<br />

harmonies, beautiful tones and<br />

strong leads’.<br />

After a busy and rewarding couple<br />

of terms, Noteworthy closed out the<br />

year performing at the end of year<br />

school prize giving ceremonies, as<br />

well as being invited to present a<br />

mini-concert at the annual Māngere<br />

Bridge Santa Parade.<br />

played not only in a group, but<br />

also as soloists. These creative<br />

percussionists have also created<br />

a custom-made rig for their<br />

‘Junkyard Percussion Project’ –<br />

where they take ‘found’ items<br />

and turn them into percussive<br />

musical instruments. Their final<br />

Lexus Walters. They entered into<br />

two of the Vocal Group Categories,<br />

competing against many wellseasoned<br />

performers and large<br />

choirs, however they were awarded<br />

high marks and won 2nd place in<br />

both their categories, taking home<br />

certificates, ribbons and prize<br />

money!<br />

Following on from this, VIA also<br />

entered the Group Vocal Heat at the<br />

Stand Up Stand Out competition.<br />

Adyhana, Vera and Ilisapeti also<br />

entered the Solo Vocal heats, with<br />

Ilisapeti progressing to the Solo<br />

Vocal Semi-Finals, placing in the<br />

top 36 vocalists out of over 160. VIA<br />

brought the house down at the<br />

Vocal Group heats, with the judges<br />

commenting on their ‘beautiful<br />

vocal blend, interesting arrangement<br />

and thoughtfulness of approach’.<br />

VIA progressed straight through to<br />

the Finals, placing them in the Top 5<br />

vocal groups overall. As part of this,<br />

they had the opportunity to attend<br />

a private masterclass with renowned<br />

soul-singer, Bella Kalolo. Their final<br />

performance was at the Vodafone<br />

Events Centre on 1st September,<br />

and was live-streamed on Māori<br />

Television.<br />

‘beautiful vocal<br />

blend, interesting<br />

arrangement<br />

and<br />

thoughtfulness<br />

of approach’<br />

On Wednesday 15th August, VIA<br />

trio were profiled on Niu FM as part<br />

of Pacific Youth Week. They were<br />

interviewed about their musical<br />

journey, recent success, music<br />

competitions and what drives them<br />

to succeed. They also performed<br />

two beautiful songs live-on-air.<br />

Their interview and songs were also<br />

streamed live on Niu Fm’s Facebook<br />

page, with people tuning in even<br />

from overseas! Their videos were<br />

shared online, with one gaining a<br />

spectacular 10,000 views in the first<br />

week!<br />

One of our VIA girls, Vera Wilson, was<br />

also handpicked by the illustrious<br />

TJ Taotua to perform solo at the<br />

exclusive ‘Soul Lounge’ evening at<br />

Māngere Arts Centre. It was a soldout<br />

concert that featured R&B and<br />

soul music from established local<br />

artists. Vera had the opportunity to<br />

perform two songs, one solo and<br />

one with the house band, ‘Ministry<br />

of Tone.’<br />

Te Rehu and Miracle with <strong>MC</strong> Staff at Heads Held High<br />

Wayfinder Te Rehu Karaka<br />

Heads Held High<br />

Two of our Year 12<br />

students, Te Rehu Karaka<br />

& Miracle Tonga, were part<br />

of a cohort of promising<br />

young leaders selected<br />

from South Auckland<br />

schools who were given<br />

the chance to creatively<br />

re-story the world they live<br />

in, in collaboration with<br />

the Blackfriars Theatre<br />

Company.<br />

The project, which was showcased<br />

in June at the Māngere Arts<br />

Centre, challenged stereotypes and<br />

explored themes of alofa, reciprocity,<br />

resilience and respect. Te Rehu was<br />

chosen as the Māngere College<br />

Wayfinder for the project. Wayfinders<br />

were chosen as fierce changemakers<br />

who advocate for change.<br />

Te Rehu writes, “I want change<br />

in our learning, in education and<br />

job opportunities. I’m fighting for<br />

freedom. I want our people to think<br />

for themselves and decide what’s<br />

best for our communities.”<br />

Leading on from her involvement<br />

in Heads Held High, Miracle Tonga<br />

was chosen to join “Voices of South<br />

Auckland” – a collective of four<br />

promising high school students with<br />

a talent for spoken word and poetry,<br />

Intermediate students enjoying workshops with Miracle<br />

and a heart for their community.<br />

In association with Springboard<br />

Trust, Miracle delivered empowering<br />

workshops to students at Bruce<br />

McLaren & Takanini Intermediates,<br />

which encouraged and enabled<br />

students to open up and give voice<br />

to their lives, struggles, emotions<br />

and hopes through spoken word,<br />

poetry, games and discussion.<br />

Miracle was deeply inspired by<br />

the bravery and resilience of these<br />

young students, saying of the<br />

experience, “you’d be surprised to<br />

see what a kid can hold. Even the<br />

smallest people carry the heaviest<br />

things in life. But that only inspires<br />

you to do better and to help make a<br />

change.”<br />

The newly formed <strong>MC</strong><br />

Boys Quartet had the<br />

opportunity to perform at<br />

various school events this<br />

year, showcasing their<br />

strong vocals and soulful<br />

four-part harmonies.<br />

Their performances at the annual<br />

Performing Arts Night were a<br />

highlight of the night, igniting the<br />

crowd. As well as performing as an<br />

individual group, they also provided<br />

the music for dance items, and<br />

then closed the night out with<br />

another song which saw the crowd<br />

up on their feet, dancing the night<br />

away. They were also featured at the<br />

Sports Awards Night, performing<br />

two standout songs that were<br />

enjoyed by all. Closing out the year,<br />

they performed a rousing rendition<br />

of ‘Sometimes it Takes a Mountain’,<br />

backed by the Noteworthy Junior<br />

Choir.<br />

visited by representatives from Auckland<br />

Museum, RepFM, OMAC and MIT, who<br />

introduced our young musicians and artists<br />

to Volume South Exhibition’s composition<br />

competition, and offered them advice and<br />

encouragement on their musical journey.<br />

As a part of the presentation,<br />

Rocky Misiepo, a<br />

motivational speaker and<br />

rapper, talked to students<br />

about his path to success,<br />

to your work. TJ Manuel, one<br />

of the founders of RepFM<br />

also spoke about his journey<br />

throughout his school<br />

years and then into his<br />

professional career, sharing<br />

how he had such a passion<br />

for music, in particular music<br />

in South Auckland. He set<br />

up his own radio station<br />

and recording studio, and<br />

this became the platform to<br />

work with many successful<br />

artists. He explained the<br />

importance of surrounding<br />

yourself with motivated<br />

friends who will encourage<br />

you to succeed and that if<br />

you find something you love,<br />

work at it and don’t give up<br />

- it’s worth investing time in<br />

your passion. The afternoon<br />

was concluded with a special<br />

performance by upcoming<br />

rapper, Lukan Rai$ey and DJ,<br />

Crème Manuel.<br />

as it forms a firm foundation for the rest<br />

of your life. She also shared her musical<br />

journey and in particular her rapping and<br />

song writing career path and the doors it<br />

has opened for her to get involved in the<br />

community and share her gifts with others.<br />

Year 10 students enjoying the concert<br />

Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra in action<br />

APO Discovery Concert Trip to<br />

Auckland Town Hall<br />

On Wednesday 2nd May,<br />

thirty Year 10 music students<br />

had the opportunity to<br />

travel to the Auckland Town<br />

Hall to hear the Auckland<br />

Philharmonia Orchestra, live<br />

in concert.<br />

This concert was a special showcase<br />

which followed the journey of<br />

orchestral music, looking at how<br />

it has developed from the 16th<br />

Century to today.<br />

The concert kicked off with the<br />

sensational ‘Four Seasons’ by Vivaldi;<br />

a profile of one of the earliest<br />

examples of storytelling. Following<br />

on from this was a journey through<br />

musical history, with pieces by<br />

Mozart, Mendelssohn, Dvorak,<br />

Rachmaninov and Bernstein.<br />

Interests were peaked as the last<br />

piece was announced, a new work<br />

by the APO’s Young Composer<br />

in Residence, Kirsten Strom.<br />

The piece, ‘Wake Up Call’, saw<br />

orchestra members start the piece<br />

whilst on their phones, seemingly<br />

uninterested in beginning the piece<br />

– how bizarre! One by one they<br />

‘woke up’ and the piece came to<br />

life. It was rhythmic, exciting, and<br />

somewhat suspenseful, and even<br />

included clapping, tapping and<br />

stomping sections. Within the space<br />

of two hours, students were taken<br />

on a journey of musical discovery<br />

which opened their eyes to the<br />

possibilities in music – whether as a<br />

performer, composer, conductor, or<br />

even a committed music enthusiast!<br />

were treated to a special<br />

percussion members of the<br />

Auckland Philharmonia<br />

Orchestra.<br />

As well as performing a variety of<br />

interesting pieces for our students,<br />

including classical, jazz and<br />

contemporary styles, they talked<br />

about the mechanics, history and<br />

technique of their instruments, as<br />

APOPS Percussion Showcase<br />

well as giving students an insight<br />

into their lives as professional<br />

musicians. They encouraged the<br />

students to think hard about<br />

choosing a career that they feel<br />

passionate about and to put the<br />

groundwork in by being motivated<br />

and consistent. They all spoke of<br />

how playing music with others,<br />

whether it be in bands, ensembles<br />

or orchestras is really enjoyable and<br />

brings out the fun of music, and<br />

that practice is key for achieving<br />

your goals as a musician.<br />

Malcolm Lakatani with Year 11 Music<br />

Composition students<br />

Over five weeks in Term 2, our<br />

Level 1 & 3 music students had<br />

the opportunity to work with<br />

performer, recording artist, vocalist<br />

and multi-instrumentalist, Malcolm<br />

Lakatani.<br />

The Mentoring in Schools<br />

programme supports teachers<br />

and students with NCEA Music<br />

Achievement Standards – allowing<br />

students to potentially earn four<br />

to six credits through their work<br />

with their mentor. Our students<br />

thoroughly enjoyed being mentored<br />

by Malcolm, who assisted students<br />

in their music composition work.<br />

performing arts night<br />

Our <strong>MC</strong> Auditorium was<br />

packed to the brim on<br />

Wednesday 20 June as our<br />

Performing Arts students<br />

starred in our annual<br />

Performing Arts night.<br />

The programme featured<br />

performances by Year 11, 12 and 13<br />

dancers, many of whom showcased<br />

stunning original hip-hop and<br />

contemporary choreography.<br />

Highlights included a rousing<br />

introduction from our kapa haka<br />

group, who introduced our new<br />

school haka, and some wonderful<br />

collaborations between our<br />

‘Noteworthy’ Junior choir singers<br />

and the dancers. The night included<br />

performances by our Year 13 Band,<br />

Year 11 & 12 Vocal Groups, and our<br />

Junior Drumline group who brought<br />

the house down with their energetic<br />

routine.<br />

Exceptional vocals and harmonies<br />

were showcased by our Girls Trio<br />

and Boys Quartet and we were<br />

treated to a lively, fantastically<br />

costumed Year 11 dance to the<br />

theme song from ‘Hairspray’.<br />

Ruby Winter:<br />

“It was a great<br />

experience because we<br />

got to learn different<br />

types of dance. It was<br />

awesome working<br />

with the University<br />

instructors because<br />

they helped us relate<br />

how we express<br />

emotions through<br />

dance.”<br />

2018<br />

Dance<br />

report<br />

Dance in 2018 started<br />

out with a great focus on<br />

composition.<br />

Students in years 11, 12 and 13<br />

spent all of term 1 focusing on their<br />

identity and developing creative<br />

movement pieces that highlighted<br />

who they are and where they come<br />

from. Apii and Una in year 11, Tare,<br />

Rehia and Erana in year 12 and<br />

Sharee, Holly and Izadine in year<br />

13 all worked collaboratively to<br />

make amazingly<br />

creative pieces. This<br />

composition work<br />

led perfectly into<br />

the term 2 extracurricular<br />

event<br />

of Gen X, where<br />

several of our year 13 students<br />

worked together to develop a piece<br />

that represented the theme of<br />

Purpose.<br />

During terms 2 and 3 all Dance<br />

classes focused on performance<br />

work, developing their skill and<br />

technique across a variety of<br />

genres. Topping off term 2 with a<br />

spectacular Performing Arts night,<br />

which was highlighted by two class<br />

performances of Hairspray (year<br />

11) and Dive (years 12 and 13).<br />

In addition to this, at the start of<br />

term 3 we were very lucky to have<br />

a team of students from Unitec<br />

come in and run a performance<br />

and composition workshop with<br />

Dance students from years 10-13.<br />

As a result of that day, one of our<br />

talented junior dancers Anne has<br />

been regularly training with Unitec<br />

as part of a youth contemporary<br />

dance group.<br />

Year 10 Dance has had a great<br />

year, highlighted particularly by the<br />

collaborative piece we developed<br />

with the year 10 Music class, which<br />

concluded with the students<br />

performing amazingly well in front<br />

of their peers and an exclusive<br />

audience of Mr Webb and members<br />

of the ERO team. Another highlight<br />

of the year 10 class has been our<br />

musical theatre class dance which<br />

has shown the skill and enthusiasm<br />

our junior students have towards<br />

dance in general.<br />

Overall 2018 has been a great year<br />

for Dance. Each year the ability of<br />

the students increases and they<br />

inevitably rise to the new challenges<br />

placed before them.<br />

Gen X 2018<br />

A talented group of our<br />

Dance students created a<br />

uniquely choreographed<br />

performance piece for Gen<br />

X 2018.<br />

This innovative secondary school<br />

competition fuses various forms<br />

of the arts to bring a message of<br />

hope and love - and this year’s<br />

theme was Purpose. The audience<br />

was treated to a combination of<br />

spoken word, music, dance and<br />

multimedia, to be used as a voice<br />

for our young people.<br />

Physical Education and<br />

Health Department 2018<br />

It was a busy and fun-filled year within the PE dept this year. Here are<br />

just some of our highlights from this year.<br />

junior PE<br />

Our junior PE<br />

programme<br />

is about<br />

developing and<br />

improving skills,<br />

while learning<br />

to work within a<br />

team.<br />

This year we had an<br />

emphasis on using<br />

and developing<br />

our interpersonal<br />

skills to help others<br />

and ourselves, to<br />

understand the<br />

importance of physical activity<br />

and how it relates to our hauora<br />

(well-being).<br />

Throughout the year our<br />

students have participated in a<br />

variety of different sports and<br />

activities including; athletics,<br />

fitness, games, gymnastics<br />

and swimming.<br />

Our focus in athletics is<br />

all about being the best<br />

we can be. We take<br />

part in different athletic<br />

events such as sprinting, middledistance<br />

running, long jump,<br />

and throwing and consider how<br />

we can improve our own<br />

personal scores through good<br />

techniques.<br />

In fitness, we look at how the<br />

body responds to exercise and<br />

ways to improve our fitness.<br />

We consider different training<br />

methods and the best ways<br />

to meet our own personal<br />

needs. We also consider how<br />

regular exercise and good<br />

eating habits can improve our<br />

hauora.<br />

In games, we explore how<br />

different strategies and<br />

tactics can be used to<br />

gain an advantage over<br />

our opponents. We look<br />

at offensive and defensive<br />

strategies and how creating<br />

space, marking and losing a<br />

player, and good techniques<br />

all play a part in helping our<br />

team succeed. We look at<br />

different games including<br />

invasion games, striking<br />

and fielding and net and<br />

wall games. We also look at<br />

different games from around<br />

the world and consider how<br />

these differ from what we<br />

are used to and the influence<br />

they have on society.<br />

junior health<br />

This year our junior health<br />

program has had a facelift,<br />

by including new units<br />

such as ‘Ko wai au’ and<br />

‘Net Safety’ in year 9.<br />

As the world is ever changing so<br />

is the content of our programmes.<br />

Students are given the opportunity<br />

to explore aspects about their<br />

culture, values and how to<br />

become responsible decision<br />

makers. The aim of these<br />

new programmes is to<br />

build resilience through<br />

strengthening their personal<br />

identity and sense of selfidentity.<br />

Through this we hope<br />

that students will be able to<br />

make a significant contribution<br />

to the well-being of themselves<br />

and others beyond the<br />

classroom.<br />

‘...students are given<br />

the opportunity<br />

to explore aspects<br />

about their<br />

culture, values and<br />

how to become<br />

responsible<br />

decision makers.’<br />

Mangere College - 2018 65

senior<br />

PE<br />

In our senior PE<br />

programme we<br />

are able to offer<br />

4 achievement<br />

standards all<br />

looking at building<br />

and improving<br />

on the students’<br />

knowledge from<br />

years 9 and 10.<br />

In our first standard, we<br />

focus on our interpersonal<br />

skills and the students<br />

create and work within<br />

teams to coach and<br />

officiate each other. This<br />

really challenges our<br />

students to listen and<br />

understand each others’<br />

views.<br />

In our second standard,<br />

we challenge the students<br />

to participate in a variety<br />

of different games<br />

and activities many of<br />

which they have not<br />

experienced before or are<br />

not familiar with such as<br />

archery, bowls or soccer.<br />

Students are then asked<br />

to consider some of the<br />

factors that influence their<br />

participation and how and<br />

why they participated.<br />

We also have a<br />

performance standard<br />

where students are<br />

required to perform an<br />

activity or sport to a high<br />

standard on a regular<br />

basis.<br />

Our final standard is a<br />

health standard looking<br />

at promoting positive<br />

sexuality. Although this is<br />

a difficult and sometimes<br />

embarrassing subject<br />

we feel that it is vitally<br />

important for all our<br />

students to learn and<br />

understand about this<br />

subject as they mature<br />

into adulthood.<br />

Tongariro camp<br />

During week 9 our<br />

Student Leaders and<br />

other Year 13 students in<br />

Leadership roles went to<br />

Tongariro National park for<br />

a 5 night camp.<br />

The camp had a focus on<br />

developing their leadership skills<br />

and allowing them to consider<br />

what they as a group would like to<br />

achieve this year.<br />

All leaders were given the<br />

opportunity to challenge themselves<br />

both physically and mentally.<br />

The students participated in a<br />

variety of different activities, which<br />

gave them the chance to practice<br />

some of their leadership skills.<br />

They represented themselves and<br />

Māngere College very well and we<br />

look forward to seeing what this<br />

group of students can do into the<br />

future.<br />

sports leaders<br />

The Year 12 Sports<br />

Leadership class<br />

started the year with a<br />

bang, with the group<br />

organising and running<br />

the big day out for the<br />

year 9 students.<br />

This was a fun filled day of games<br />

and activities aimed at helping<br />

the year 9 pupils get to know each<br />

other. Activities included team<br />

building games such as magic<br />

stick and spiders web as well as<br />

traditional games.<br />

Year 13 Sports Leadership class<br />

had a focus on different leadership<br />

strategies in term one and<br />

considered the strengths and<br />

weaknesses of each. In term two<br />

they had an opportunity to put<br />

some of these into practice when<br />

they planned and ran coaching<br />

sessions for our Junior PE classes.<br />

big day out<br />

On Friday 16th of<br />

February, the Year 9s had<br />

their Big Day Out where<br />

they all participated in<br />

activities organised by the<br />

Year 12 Sports Leadership<br />

class.<br />

It took place on our own fields<br />

where everyone involved<br />

participated in the games including<br />

the Student Leaders. The purpose<br />

of this event was to give the Year 9s<br />

a fun and competition, develop the<br />

<strong>MC</strong> way and build team-work within<br />

each form class. It was well worth a<br />

day out of the classroom!<br />

We played a game called ‘Scenarios’<br />

where each form class presented<br />

a short skit displaying the values of<br />

Māngere College, which are Respect<br />

and Responsibility.<br />

All classes were very committed<br />

to their acting and portrayal of<br />

what the <strong>MC</strong> Way is which made<br />

everything more enjoyable. The<br />

day was finished off with a sausage<br />

sizzle put on by teachers.<br />

The main<br />

purpose of<br />

sports science<br />

is to assist<br />

those that have<br />

a passion for<br />

sports to help<br />

maximise their<br />

potential.<br />

This is done through<br />

teaching methods and<br />

principles of training,<br />

which then have to be<br />

applied in a training<br />

our students.<br />

woodhill forest<br />

The Level 2 Sports<br />

Science classes went to<br />

Woodhill Forest as a part<br />

of their mountain biking<br />

assessment looking at<br />

risk management in an<br />

outdoor setting.<br />

The main focus was to plan a<br />

mountain biking trip and look at<br />

some of the possible risks associated<br />

with it. The students had to prepare<br />

a Safety Action Plan (SAP) outlining<br />

the risks, what could be the major<br />

cause of these risks and how they<br />

were going to minimize these risks.<br />

The students got a good insight<br />

into how risk can be managed and<br />

how to determine some potential<br />

dangers in outdoor activities.<br />

Many of us enjoyed ourselves a lot<br />

despite the minor injuries that we<br />

got along the unbalanced ride. It<br />

was a really fun but a scary first<br />

experience for most of us. It was<br />

awesome with all the students<br />

taking part in this new activity and<br />

pushing themselves.<br />

The ride was mixed with tracks<br />

that were downhill and uphill.<br />

One highlight was when some<br />

people accidentally let go of the<br />

bike handles while riding and<br />

ended up crashing into the trees or<br />

bushes, another highlight was going<br />

through the steep down-hill tracks.<br />

Well done to all students and a<br />

special thank you to our sports<br />

science teacher for all your hard<br />

work and commitment.<br />

-Julienne Niko<br />

Classes also look at<br />

sport from a<br />

socio-ecological<br />

perspective and<br />

how that can have<br />

an impact on<br />

participation in<br />

physical activity.<br />

Students then take<br />

action to enable<br />

others to participate in<br />

a planned activity.<br />

In 2019, these<br />

activities will be<br />

aquatic-based.<br />

‘...another<br />

partnership by the Āmua Ao & The<br />

Pūhoro STEM (Science, Technology,<br />

Engineering and Maths) Academy.<br />

It was a fun and action-packed day<br />

for the students, and the ultimate<br />

aim of the day was to give the<br />

students a positive experience of<br />

science and engineering.<br />

Our students came 4th out of 8<br />

Year 9 Geography<br />

Year 9 Students embark on a hikoi of Te Pane o<br />

Mataoho (Māngere Mountain) at the beginning of term<br />

2. This involved a ‘Walk and Cook For Life’ workshop<br />

encouraging students to grow and cook their own<br />

vegetables.<br />

1 Geography trip<br />

The 1GEO trip to Ihumatao was a Geography<br />

Contemporary Issue assessment. We were<br />

joined by Pania Newton, who is one of the<br />

key members of SOUL advocating to save<br />

Ihumatao from a large housing development.<br />

hunua falls trip<br />

The Level 2 Geography class spent a day in the native forest at<br />

Hunua Falls learning about our climate. They worked as a team to<br />

research the many things in the environment that affect the temperature<br />

where we live. They also got to experience our country’s<br />

beautiful nature.<br />

karekare trip<br />

For most students in Level 3 Geography, their field trip<br />

to Karekare was the first time they had experienced<br />

Auckland’s wild west coast beaches. They enjoyed<br />

walking across the wide open sand dunes surrounded<br />

by high cliffs and to learn about the power of the open<br />

ocean and our natural environment.<br />

Flag Making<br />

The Heritage Rescue<br />

flag-making workshop<br />

was on the 9th of<br />

February and was held<br />

in the D-Block Fabric<br />

workshop.<br />

It was a fantastic opportunity<br />

for our Level 3 Fashion students<br />

to get involved with protecting<br />

heritage land at Ihumatao.<br />

The students, Mrs Maskell and<br />

Ms Singh worked alongside<br />

SOUL (Save Our Unique<br />

Landscape) and a team of<br />

specialists from TV documentary<br />

series “Heritage Rescue”. The<br />

students and teachers have<br />

created dozens of bright<br />

flags to draw attention to<br />

the historic site and to the<br />

community’s fight to save it<br />

from destruction.<br />

The students’ work will be<br />

featured on ‘Heritage Rescue’<br />

on Choice TV.<br />

Students loved sewing the<br />

colourful flags and designs<br />

on the flags. It was a great<br />

and interesting learning<br />

experience for Level 3<br />

Every year before the SkyCity<br />

Variety of Chefs event, the chefs<br />

visit a local school and spend<br />

the morning cooking with a<br />

special group of Variety kids.<br />

This year, celebrity Chefs Nic Watt, Monique<br />

Fiso and Hayden McMillan came to<br />

Māngere College, where they foraged with<br />

our refugee students in the garden before<br />

cooking some amazing omelettes.<br />

The final results were delicious, using a few<br />

vegetables from our school garden and<br />

eggs.<br />

On Friday morning, we met 3 variety chefs<br />

who taught us how to cook Japanese<br />

Basketball<br />

This year our girls’<br />

basketball team consisted<br />

of students from Years 9<br />

to 11.<br />

Competing weekly in the Counties<br />

Manukau Zone captained by<br />

Patricia Beazley who also had the<br />

role of coach for the first seven<br />

games.<br />

Supporting the team was<br />

teacher-in-charge Milo West<br />

and myself as manager.<br />

We were gratefully privileged<br />

to have Mr Samu take over<br />

the role of Coach.<br />

Team success included<br />

placing second in our<br />

section and gaining<br />

entry to the Auckland<br />

Champs. A great<br />

experience for our team.<br />

Results for the season<br />

was played 11, won 8<br />

and lost 3.<br />

The progress of our<br />

team was rewarded<br />

with the development<br />

of Year 9 and 10s. An<br />

exciting group who will<br />

go from strength to<br />

strength.<br />

Year 11s have come<br />

through since Year 9<br />

and their supporting<br />

role with the juniors<br />

has been one of<br />

their strengths.<br />

I would like to<br />

acknowledge<br />

the staff<br />

who<br />

supported us.<br />

Miss West – our reliable driver,<br />

making sure we had our belts on<br />

before she turned the key on and<br />

providing the team with snacks.<br />

Mr Samu – our trusting coach who<br />

not only shared his coaching skills<br />

and knowledge but also his food.<br />

Tai Uamaki – for her behind the<br />

scene role in the participation of the<br />

team. Thank you Tai.<br />

Special thanks to the<br />

team, a great bunch<br />

who I encourage to<br />

return for another<br />

season in 2019.<br />

On behalf of our mixed<br />

U17/Year9 and 10 Girls<br />

Basketball team, I am<br />

privileged to share our<br />

journey for 2018.<br />

This year we had one basketball<br />

U17 girls’ team consisting of<br />

players from years 9 to 11.<br />

We competed in the U17<br />

Counties Manukau Basketball<br />

Tournament playing against<br />

other schools in that zone.<br />

During practices there were fun<br />

times, times we trained hard and<br />

times we played well…this also<br />

came through in our games.<br />

Being successful in coming<br />

second in our section, this<br />

allowed us to gain entry to<br />

Auckland Champs.<br />

This was a great experience for<br />

our team.<br />

The progress of our team<br />

has been rewarding with the<br />

development of our Year 9 and<br />

10s.<br />

Our Year 11s has been a team<br />

who has come through from<br />

year 9. They have grown from<br />

strength to strength each year.<br />

On behalf of the team, I would<br />

like to acknowledge the great<br />

staff who has supported us.<br />

Miss West, Mr Samu and Mrs<br />

Beazley, thank you for all your<br />

support which has meant<br />

everything to us. Thank you,<br />

thank you, and thank you.<br />

Last but not least from me,<br />

special thanks to our 2018 Girls<br />

basketball team. Bring on 2019!<br />

However we were unable to<br />

enter the Papakura Netball<br />

However, we were able to<br />

secure some games with<br />

the neighbouring schools<br />

we are very grateful.<br />

Soccer<br />

We had one boys<br />

team of committed<br />

players this year.<br />

They played in the Senior<br />

Manukau B division<br />

despite having many boys<br />

from the junior school. It’s<br />

fair to say that this team<br />

is full of big characters<br />

and some great players,<br />

although not the most<br />

organised group or team<br />

I’ve ever seen.<br />

We had a good start to our<br />

season, putting in a solid<br />

performance in our round<br />

robin games, winning 5 of<br />

our games and finishing<br />

3rd overall. This put us<br />

into the plate competition<br />

where we went on to<br />

finish 5th.<br />

A special mention to<br />

Shuaib and Shane who<br />

are both in their last<br />

season with us having<br />

played for the boys soccer<br />

team for all of their 5<br />

years at <strong>MC</strong>. These boys<br />

both stepped up to roles<br />

of responsibility this year,<br />

running some training<br />

sessions and coaching,<br />

while Shane was our<br />

captain.<br />

Once again well done<br />

on a great season<br />

- you guys really<br />

represented<br />

yourself and our<br />

school with great<br />

passion and pride.<br />

Well done and thank you.<br />

- Mr Darragh<br />

Boys soccer coach<br />

As always there were<br />

lots of fun and laughter<br />

around this team and I<br />

would like to thank all the<br />

boys for their hard work,<br />

commitment and great<br />

sportsmanship throughout<br />

the season.<br />

Rugby<br />

Firstly, let us thank all the<br />

players who took part in this<br />

year’s rugby teams, from our<br />

young bucks in the under 14’s<br />

and 15s, the girls in the 10-a-side<br />

team, to Māngere College’s<br />

future rugby stars in the 2nd<br />

XV, to our unstoppable 1st XV<br />

who led the way with their<br />

hard work and dedication. Most<br />

importantly let’s thank all the<br />

coaches and managers, because<br />

without them there would be no<br />

teams.<br />

1st XV Rugby<br />

Our 1st XV team<br />

played in the 1C<br />

competition this<br />

year and had an<br />

unprecedented<br />

season, going<br />

through the entire<br />

competition<br />

without losing a<br />

match.<br />

defeated Mt Albert<br />

Grammar and then took<br />

out our fellow Māngere<br />

rivals, Southern Cross<br />

Campus in the final<br />

to be crowned 1C<br />

Champions for 2018.<br />

The team played a total<br />

of 12 games and didn’t<br />

taste defeat all season.<br />

The side were a class<br />

above all opponents,<br />

going through the<br />

round robin unbeaten,<br />

finishing on top of the<br />

table and qualifying<br />

for the playoffs. In their<br />

semifinal, the first XV<br />

Such a successful year<br />

wouldn’t be possible<br />

without the hard work<br />

and the sacrifices of our<br />

coaches Piri, Dee, Vi and<br />

our manager Ms Masoe.<br />

- Sili Tongotongo<br />

Captain<br />

This year 1st XV rugby<br />

competed in 1C grade, they<br />

were the contender and<br />

a force to reckon with in<br />

school rugby.<br />

Coach Piri Tamihana, alongside<br />

Dee Masters worked hard this<br />

year with the boys and came<br />

out with a great achievement<br />

for Māngere College.<br />

Participation in the team has<br />

been a great opportunity<br />

for these boys, they<br />

demonstrated hard work,<br />

comradery and commitment.<br />

The 1st XV should be proud of<br />

their result in this competition<br />

of 10 games, being<br />

undefeated with 10 wins<br />

for the season and making<br />

us the proud winners of the<br />

2nd XV boys<br />

rugby<br />

Our 2nd XV team played<br />

in the 2B competition and<br />

played a total of 9 games,<br />

winning 7.<br />

These boys stormed through<br />

the round robin matches, going<br />

on a 6 game winning streak.<br />

As one of the top sides, they<br />

easily qualified for the playoffs<br />

before finally succumbing in<br />

their semifinal. This team was<br />

coached by Willie Marsters and<br />

their manager was Ms P Reddy.<br />

- Sili Tongotongo<br />

It has been an<br />

extraordinary<br />

season for our 2nd<br />

XV Rugby team.<br />

They played with an<br />

outstanding style, set a<br />

high standard of play<br />

and showed a calm<br />

determination during<br />

high pressure moments<br />

to finish 2nd overall in<br />

their grade. There were<br />

plenty of personal bests,<br />

praying, singing, lots of<br />

laughs and great team<br />

spirit and so we are all<br />

looking forward to next<br />

season.<br />

The team is very<br />

appreciative of their<br />

coach, Mr Willie Masters,<br />

who took on the huge<br />

task of guiding the<br />

side, their manager<br />

Mrs Parwati Reddy and<br />

their amazing group<br />

of faithful supporters.<br />

Congratulations to the<br />

players, coaches and<br />

management on a<br />

successful season!<br />

u15’s boys rugby<br />

Our under 15 team<br />

played in the 15B<br />

competition and<br />

played a total of<br />

9 games, winning<br />

5, losing 3 and<br />

drawing 1.<br />

This year we had a<br />

composite team (2<br />

schools combined).<br />

Marcellin College had a<br />

coach and players but<br />

no team was available to<br />

play at their school. On<br />

the other hand, we had a<br />

team but no coach.<br />

These boys played well<br />

throughout the round<br />

robin games and qualified<br />

for the top 8 knockout<br />

rounds, going down in the<br />

quarterfinals.<br />

This team was coached<br />

by Joe Collins and Jon<br />

Pearse, their manager<br />

and Teacher-in-Charge<br />

was Miss Tualaulelei and<br />

started with a hiss<br />

and a roar with a large<br />

squad toughing it out<br />

at trainings. The pack<br />

showed plenty of<br />

humour and enthusiasm,<br />

but a lot of new faces<br />

also meant they had<br />

plenty to learn.<br />

Māngere College<br />

Supporters<br />

Māngere College continues to be very grateful to our local businesses and individuals who provide<br />

financial support to our students. This commitment helps Māngere College students achieve to their<br />

potential.<br />

The artistic talents of Māngere College students continue to be used to help recognise our major<br />

sponsors. Framed artworks are gifted to our major sponsors each year. The artworks, which now hang in<br />

boardrooms, foyers and the offices of leading businesses, give clear recognition to the support provided to<br />

Māngere College students.<br />

Financial support allows us to provide three groups of scholarships each year:<br />

• The Māngere College Entrance Scholarships cover most of the costs associated with starting as a<br />

Year 9 student at Māngere College.<br />

• The Māngere College Senior Scholarships are awarded to deserving Year 10 students. These are<br />

worth $500 and are used by the recipients to cover the cost of NZQA fees, uniform and other school<br />

costs over their senior years.<br />

• Year 13 students can apply for the Māngere College Leavers' Scholarships. These awards are valued<br />

at up to $1500 to assist students to meet the costs of tertiary study.<br />
