Mangere College - 2018 1

The Principal's Report

2018 has been a

watershed year for

Māngere College with

changes in the staffroom,

an Education Review

Office report and some

significant visitors to the


The year started off with us

welcoming 13 new teachers to the

school. This is a significant number

for us and meant a lot of change in

the staffroom. They each brought

a different level of experience

from first year teachers to very

experienced teachers and each

made a huge contribution during

the year.

One of our key areas to focus on

this year has been to improve our

teaching practice using a new

appraisal process and the Teachers

Council’s new professional standards

and code of conduct for teachers.

This work was reflected in a

comment that ERO made during

their visit when they said that a

strength of the school was “the

capability and dedication of the

teaching team who are open

to learning and committed to

improving professional practice.”

These two aspects - being open to

learning and improving practice

- are very important to me. In our

work: we all make mistakes and

perfection is an unrealistic goal

but we can always learn from our

experiences and strive to get better

in what we do each day.

Another important aspect of the

school that was commented on by

ERO is the environment that we

create for our students around the

school. ERO said that this strength is

the “inclusive and positive learning

and working environment where

students’ diverse languages, cultures

and identities are fostered and

their religions respected”. It is this

environment that our students need

and deserve to be able to learn

successfully and to achieve to their


This was the first ERO review during

my time at the school and it was

very rewarding to see the work that

we have been doing over the past

three years being recognised in

this way. As well as commenting

2 Mangere College - 2018

on the quality of the teaching

staff and the environment of the

school they also made reference to

these changes when they said “The

school’s leadership and strategic

change management processes

and practices, together with the

prioritising of Māori success and

student wellbeing, are effectively

contributing to achieving equity

and excellence and the acceleration

of learning.”

Of course they also pointed out

areas for improvement and the

most important of these for me

is the achievement of our Māori

students. We are not doing well

enough in this area as a school

and it is something that I am

committed to changing. This

school should be a place where all

students succeed and we need to

continue to work hard to ensure

that our results are equitable as well

as excellent.

At prizegiving this term we

announced our Student Leaders for

2019. This is an excellent group of

young people who are excited about

leading the school and having an

impact in the wider community as

well. So many of our students are

passionate about the society they

live in and particularly their local

community of Māngere. This was

particularly evident to me when

we hosted two politicians, the

Speaker of the House Trevor Mallard

and Minister Aupito William Sio,

to launch a virtual reality tour of

parliament. This gave our students

a chance to have their voices heard

by national politicians and to ask

questions of them. They certainly

expressed their views strongly.

Allowing students to have a voice

in the running of the school

through our different councils is an

ongoing focus for us at school. We

want to provide all students with

an opportunity to grow their own

leadership and develop into the

future leaders for our community.

We have continued to work

closely with our local schools in

our Community of Learning, the

Māngere Kahui Ako, which I am

proud to lead. We have a vision as

a group of schools of strengthening

education in the Māngere

community and of working together

for the benefit of our students. We

will see more positive outcomes

of this collaboration in the years to


Of course the year has not been

without its difficulties and the loss

of a student and an ex student

during Term 3 was a real shock

to the school community and a

traumatic time for students and

staff. At Māngere College we talk

a lot about the importance of our

MC family and when you lose two

of your family it affects everyone.

What was important to me was

seeing the strength of the family to

pull together and overcome these

difficult times.

I was humbled by the strength and

resilience of our students and how

they supported each other and

I took pride in seeing the school

come together to face this together.

Our strength as a school is in the

community that we have and the

way that we can face difficult issues

together and support each other

through difficult times.

Haere rā e te piki kōtuku,

Hone Green

It is with great sadness

that the Māngere College

community has received

the news of the recent

passing of Matua Hone

Green in Opotiki, and

this deep loss cannot go

without acknowledgment.

Hone started at Māngere College

in 1972, the year the school was

officially opened, as an Assistant

Teacher in Social Studies, English,

Māori and Polynesian Studies. In

1973 he was appointed Head of the

Māori Department and in 1974, the

Dean of Form 3.

Hone was integral in establishing Te

Reo and Tikanga Māori at the school

and promoting it in the wider

community, as well as exposing

the students to a world outside

their own backyard. This resulted

in Te Reo being taught by Māori

students to Arahanga Intermediate

classes and at night school for the

community. The Māori Club went

on the road which took them to

Tongariro and Opotiki in 1974 and

the South Island in 1981.

Hone also played an important role

in setting up the Polynesian Club

which grew in numbers to 180

under his guidance and travelled

the North Island. In 1976, the

club gained 1st place in the first

ever Auckland Secondary Schools’

Polyfest at Hillary College and again

in 1977 when Māngere College was

the host school. At the time both

schools were acknowledged for their

leadership in multiculturalism.

Hone went on leave to complete

his University Studies in 1977,

returning in 1979. Then in 1988,

he left Māngere College to take

up the position of Principal at Nga

Tapuwae College.

In the 1977 magazine, the following

was written of Matua Hone Green:

‘His voice is seldom raised, he is

never seen posturing or gloomy

and there is no entry for ‘cruelty’

or ‘whining’ in his dictionary. His

strength is of an unassuming kind,

a blend of spirit and experience,

of being a good community man,

one who will take a microphone

without rehearsal and be the master

of ceremonies or a guitarist and join

the chorus. With equal willingness,

he will pick up a shovel and help

pour concrete into a neighbour’s

foundations, he is a man of two

cultures - a true New Zealander. ‘

Hone Green was a mighty figure,

a man of mana and quiet dignity.

When he spoke one felt compelled

to listen. He was one of the MC

greats and will be sorely missed. The

Māngere College family remembers

him with love and offers deepest

condolences to his whanau.

Nō reira e te matua, haere atu ki a

rātou kua taka i mua i a koe.

'Hone was

integral in


Te Reo and

Tikanga Māori

L-R: Erica Wilson and Jocelyn Maitland



Jocelyn Maitland has

been the mainstay of the

Māngere College office for

almost 40 years.

In that time she has worked

alongside five principals, including

the founding principal, Ivan

Armstrong, and supported countless

staff members and students.

They have all benefitted from her

dedication and diligence.

Jocelyn’s responsibilities have

been many and varied –performing

secretarial duties for the principal

and others, as well as making sure

that students were outfitted in the

MC uniform, operating the school

stationery shop, managing the piles

of photocopying staff required,

completing administrative tasks

for the Board, collecting money for

various activities, organising the

management of the school vans -

the list could go on and on.

Jocelyn has been essential to

the smooth running of the office

and the school. Her superb

organisational skills and super

efficiency have meant that she was

always one step ahead of us and

those who hadn’t followed proper

procedures knew that Jocelyn will

always catch us out.

Efficient she may be but Jocelyn

has a lighter side as well. When

there are gales of laughter

emanating from the office we knew

that she was probably the instigator

of the hilarity. Jocelyn is also the

fountain of knowledge of just about

every sport you could mention and

Melbourne Cup Day would not have

been the same without her.

Jocelyn will be greatly missed. It

is the end of an era for Māngere

College. We thank her most

sincerely for her dedication and

commitment to the college, its’ staff

and students.

erica wilson

After a wide variety of

teaching experiences

including that of visiting

teacher, Erica Wilson

joined the staff at

Māngere College in 1997

as Guidance Counsellor.

In 1999 she was instrumental in

setting up the Achievement Centre

at Māngere College, one of few

Alternative Education Centres that

operate from within a school setting

and which has since been held up

as a model for other such ventures

in the community.

It is due to Erica’s vision and

leadership as Manager of the

Achievement Centre that many

young people have been able to

re-enter mainstream education

and realise their potential. She

has created a welcoming and safe

environment there where students

can work independently as well

as take part in scheduled classes

for their year level. The centre

epitomises the concept of the MC


For the work she did with students

and families of the Achievement

Centre at MC, Erica received a Local

Hero Award in 2017 as part of he

Not only have students benefitted

from Erica’s care and expertise

but also staff, who have valued

her support, wise advice and good


We thank Erica and offer her our

best wishes as she leaves MC and

look forward to hearing about her

travels and adventures.

For 19 years, Walter Brown served our school as the Community

Liaison Officer.

He helped bridge the gap between school and home for students and

parents alike. If not seen, one could hear Walter playing his Cook Island

drums either in the staffroom or in his office. He was such a valued member

of staff that he was allowed to have his very own carpark space, complete

with bright orange cones.

Mr Brown is now happily enjoying his retirement

Kathryn Barclay left Māngere College during term 1 – she has been

the school guidance counsellor and lead

the Student Services team for the last 11 years.

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

violence campaign that the school has been involved with over the last five

years. She has supported many of our students during her time here. Kathryn

has moved to a lecturing position in the counselling degree at the Manukau

Institute of Technology.

We say farewell to Heather, our Nurse who worked at MC for 10


Heather enjoyed being able to share in the lives of the young people and she

also loved being part of the MC family.

She is now working as a Clinical Nurse Specialist Youth Health at Counties

Manukau Health. Heather’s new role involves supporting school nurses who

work in school-based health care in South Auckland.

We say farewell to Thomas Pearson, Music teacher who worked at

Māngere College for almost 7 years.

We would like to thank him for his work promoting music and musicianship

at MC and for his involvement behind the sound boards at Performing Arts

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


Fiona is leaving MC after being here for 4 years as a school Nurse.



She is sad to leave but has enjoyed being part of the supportive and caring

MC family. Fiona has loved working with the students and feels privileged to

be a small part of their MC experience.

She is moving to an eye correction clinic in Mt Wellington.



Chantal Cullinane has worked at Māngere College for the last 3

years as one of the part time Registered Nurses in the Health Clinic.

She left at the beginning of term 2 to take up a nursing position at Wesley

College. She was a much appreciated member of our nursing team and we

wish her well for the future.





Piri Tamihana came to Māngere College as a temporary specialised

teacher aide mid-year in 2015.

He coached the 2nd XV rugby boys in 2016 before turning his attention to

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

first and bid farewell to full-time teacher aiding. His encouraging words

towards students and staff alike will be missed.

Rowena O’Neil finished as our Operations Manager in February to

move to Canterbury to be closer to her family.

Despite only being in the role for a short time Rowena made a significant

contribution to the school, helping with the day to day running and

improving systems to make it easier for teachers to do their jobs.

Mangere College - 2018 9

Head Boy's Report

First of all, I would like to

give praise to our Heavenly

Father for his continued

love and guidance

throughout this year

and our many years of

education. 2018 is slowly

coming to an end and

what a year it has been.

As year 9s, we arrived at Māngere

College with different backgrounds

and different life experiences. It

took some of us time to warm to

each other but the years of ups and

downs, tears and laughter, good

times and bad have brought us

closer. And now we have made it,

together as ‘family’.

While at MC, we have gained

new experiences and expanded

our learning capacity. We have

strengthened old friendships and

forged new friendships.

We have shared many moments

this year, like during Polyfest where

we demonstrated our love and

passion for our own cultures and the

cultures of others.

In our sports teams: Volleyball,

Soccer, Netball, Touch, Tag, Rugby

etc - win or lose - we remained

humble and grateful.

I will miss the school atmosphere,

the feeling of being at home when

you walk through those gates and

the diversity of culture which is like

no other.

Next year some of you will move

up to Year 12 and embark on your

second year of NCEA doing Level 2,

where things will get more difficult

than they are now. Others of you will

be moving up to Year 13 and your

final year in high school, where the

staff and younger students will look

to you, to help lead the school.

After we leave school, we are free to

do what we want with our lives and

to make our mark on this world. This

‘...the feeling of

being at home

when you walk

through those


is what our 13 years of school have

been preparing us for.

I commend those who have worked

hard, stayed on task and have

consistently been focused on their

learning till the end, in spite of the

obstacles. I especially congratulate

those whose outstanding efforts

were recognised during our prize

giving. You should be proud of


I thank the Māngere College

teachers and staff for their patience

and support over the years.

Thank you for giving up your spare

time and pushing us to achieve the

best we could.

All of you have played a positive part

in our education and our growth

these past few years.

There is nothing we can say or do

that will appropriately show our

gratitude for all you have done but

I hope you realise how much we

appreciate you.

To you, our parents and caregivers,

without whose wise words,

dedication and provision, have

helped us to make it to the end of

Year 13, I say thank you.

On behalf of the student body,

I honour you all for the love and

guidance you have given us.

And now my brothers and sisters of

MC, thank you all for the memories

and strong friendships we have built

and for a fun and exciting few years.

It has been worth it.

I am grateful to have spent these

five years with you and I hope our

paths will cross again.

I hope all of the seniors do well

in their exams and whatever you

choose to do next year.

I have so much love and respect for

you all.

When we walk out those gates, I

ask you all to go out and make your

presence felt in the world.

Do what you love and love what you


Remain hungry, remain humble,

remain grateful and continue to

seek the heights!

They are well respected by both staff and student and have

always been available to respond to the needs of the student

body. The student leaders are always a welcoming presence

in Senior Assembly. They are a delightful bunch to work with

and be around.

ASB Polyfest is a big part of Māngere

College, many cultures are involved

in this festival.

I am Rehia Patuwai a Year 12 Māori

Student here at Māngere College.

I have participated in Polyfest for

3 years now. Polyfest has changed

throughout the years. Polyfest is a

competition which encourages you

to be the best at what you do.

From my perspective, Polyfest is

a festival that brings all cultures

together, to laugh, to cry and to

enjoy performances.

It is an opportunity for friends

and families to witness the hard

work that performers put into

the performances. As a performer

it’s inspirational, it gives me an

opportunity to show my family

who I am and it gives me a chance

to show people how much I love

kapa haka, my culture and how

much I want to make my whanau


This year our kapa haka was mostly

year 9 and I am so proud of them.

Our kapa performed on the stage

in front of many, representing MC,

and enjoyed themselves. That’s the

best part about it. So I encourage

all to join the kapa next year to

experience standing on the kapa

haka stage at Polyfest a part of the

MC ropu.

The Māngere College

Niuean Group was a


It was a hard year for me. Not only

because we almost didn’t have a

group, but because it was very hard

to take the role of being a leader

because I had other responsibilities.

Other than that, I still got a group

together to compete in Polyfest


Throughout our rehearsals, it was a

relief to see how many people were

committed to our group and I loved

how much passion, love, and energy

the students had for the culture.

Picking our leaders for this group

was a hard decision but at the end, I

chose Hannah-Lily Tohilima-Franklin

because I saw how much love she

had for her culture, and seeing her

take charge of everyone made me

want to make her a leader because I

needed someone bossy. She is also a

good leader in other areas of school

so I was confident with her being a

leader for our group.

Coming to the last week of practices

it was emotional knowing all our

hard work is coming to an end, and

it was a blessing to see what we had

22 Mangere College - 2018

achieved in the short time we had

together. Our last run through our

performance was the best I’ve seen.

All I saw was hard work from all


The morning of Polyfest we all had

to be at school before 6:30 am, I

was glad to see our performers up

and ready looking really amazing.

Just being together that morning

was an experience I’ll never forget.

Seeing everyone encouraging each

other saying it’s going to be alright

or just hyping everyone up was a

big highlight for me. The dances we

performed were; Entrance, Ta Me

(Action Song), Meke, Lologo Tapu

(Church hymn), Takalo (War Dance)

and Exit. Every dance we did was

done to the highest standard. I

can’t explain how proud I am to be

a part of the Māngere College Niue

group. All the blood, sweat and tears

that had gone into rehearsing just

for that one day was all worth it in

the end.

Thank you to all the tutors;

Rissa Polima-Tapatau, Kaleb Samoa,

Luke Maiko, Tearataua Taviona, Pila

Kolonga, and to all the teachers incharge;

Mike Darraugh, Sally Haye,

Deb Ward and Aisake Tuitupou.

foremost, I would like to give thanks

to our Heavenly Father for his

everlasting love, support

and guidance throughout

our Samoan group 2018.

The theme for Polyfest this

year was ‘Thread the fibres

of humanity, Thread the

fibres of spiritual wellbeing,

Bind together

the essence of cultural

identity, Weave together

the diversity of cultural

awareness.’ ‘Feso’ota’i

i le tino, Feso’ota’i i

This represented who

we are as people and

defines our culture and


Our Samoan group went through

the same process as previous years.

We started with trials that were held

in the auditorium. Each student

chooses what to perform whether it

be singing a song, doing a dance or

both, but in the Samoan language

or culture.

Our group this year was blessed

with intelligent and passionate

tutors who sacrificed precious

time for our benefit: Iulia Ioane,

Melania Agaimalo, Siata Ah-Chong,

Musuiaigaatoa Tapu, Numia

Toomata, Clarence Soti and Mike

Pio, who worked alongside our loyal

and dedicated teachers Mr Fesulua’i,

Mrs Smith, Ms Nu’usavili and Mrs

Ah Sam. We are very grateful for

their continuous support and

management leading up to Polyfest


The Samoan group was also under

the leadership of Jane Malau’ulu,

Jasmine Strickland, Esther Meleke,

Holly Rapana, Sesiona Faamausili,

Hannah Pio, Tai Perez, Paul Lesoa,

Italy Nglam and Ezra Salu.

On the third week of school, we

started rehearsals. Beforehand, we

would always start with a greeting

and prayer. For the first few days

when practices started, the leaders

had to come up with moves for

the Sasa due to not knowing if the

tutors were going to turn up to

Mangere College - 2018 23

practices for the first few weeks.

Luckily our leaders had come up

with a few moves to get the group

started on something instead of

waiting for our tutors to show up.

Practices from Monday to Friday

went from 3:40 pm to 06:00 pm.

On Saturdays, it was from 10:00 am


As weeks went by practices started

getting more challenging. Students

were starting to feel the pressure

from the tutors and teachers

were being more strict than

usual, especially when it came to

polishing our performance from

the beginning to end. During these

tough practices, we learned our

Ulufale (entrance), Ma’ulu’ulu, Sasa,

Pese (songs), Taualuga (final dance),

Ulufafo (exit) and finally perfecting

our transitions on the way.

Lunchtime practices were organised

to help those who were lost and

slow on learning moves or the lyrics

to the songs. Students knew they

had to sacrifice free time and study

hours to practice in order for the

whole group to look like one and to

be ready for when that special day

comes. The intensity of practices

lifted even more as students and

tutors felt the performance drawing

near. Although emotions were

running high, we managed to

remain strong and continued to

push and encourage each other

to overcome these barriers we

encountered through our journey.

The day we had prepared and

practised for finally arrived. Nerves

and butterflies were a common

feeling backstage. We were all

scared and terrified but no emotions

could ever beat how nervous we

all were being the sixth school to

perform on Friday morning, 16th

March 2018 in front of hundreds of

people in the crowd. As we walked

up that stage, everyone knew it

was either give it your all or go

home with regrets. That day we

performed with all our hearts. We

sang till you could barely hear our

voices and dance like there was no

tomorrow. That day we performed

like a family and we left the stage

as brothers and sisters. We walked

off that stage as one. We left the

stage smiling proudly due to the

excitement within us and knowing

that we had performed to the best

of our abilities. Saturday 17th March

2018 we anxiously waited for the

results. Our prayers were finally

answered and we were blessed with

numerous placings in the categories.

This year may have not been

the year we took it out, but in

appreciation, we all agree that this

year was also another successful year

for the Māngere College Samoan

group. This year will be the last time

the year 13s will ever experience

the feeling of preparing for Polyfest

and performing on the Samoan

stage. But what I can say is that we

year 13s will leave with our heads

held high knowing that we have

accomplished our duties as not only

year 13s but also as leaders and that

we will continue to embrace the

Samoan culture.

Through sweat and tears, hard work

and determination, commitment

and sacrifices we have made, we

know that we have left behind a

positive, open-minded and loving

atmosphere for the future MC

Samoan Polyfest groups.

No words can explain how thankful

and appreciative we are to not only

the members of this year’s group

but also to our hardworking tutors

and teachers. We are grateful for

their continuous support, words

of wisdom and their never-ending

love for our group. A special

acknowledgement to our leadership

team and well-done on the effort

you all put in. We leave Māngere

College’s future Samoan group with

a little advice: “There will be times

where it will become too much

for you and you will feel like giving

up due to the pressure. You have a

leadership team for a reason. They

are there to help you, they are a

shoulder for you to lean on when

you need support. Never give up no

matter what because at the end of

the day it’s not just ‘I OR ME’ it’s ‘WE

AS A TEAM.” We wish you all the

best of luck and always remember:

Refugee Activities


On Tuesday the 19th of

June, some other refugee

students from Māngere

College and I went to the

Henderson Trust Stadium

to play some sports.

It was Refugee Olympics Day so we

all played a lot of different sports

like basketball, hockey, and football.

Some other students from Mixit

prepared a dance. We all really

enjoyed and it was fun playing

sports and making new refugee

friends from other schools.

This is the third year that we have

held this event at school and it

has been well received by families

and friends. Providers from AUT,

University of Auckland and MIT

came and informed us about

opportunities and scholarships

at their tertiary institutes. Former

students came and Ilham Akhlaqi

spoke about her first year at AUT.

We also had an inspiring guest

speaker who spoke about

overcoming barriers to achieve in

On Wednesday the 21st

of February at Māngere

sandwiches at lunchtime

for the students at school.

Firstly we spread the butter on the

We sliced the tomato and the

lettuce. We had to cut the lettuce

small so we could make it equal for


Refugees are important to Red Cross

and to everyone in our fundraising

team. We were helping them and

we needed MC students to help. I

thought to myself, ‘please, people

come and help make a difference’.

I was glad that we made $30 on the

first day, but we needed to make

more. The refugees were going to be

so happy when we could give them

the garden tools.

We did this for three days, and we

raised $129 by the end of it. It was

good to see students supporting

this fundraising event. We needed

everyone’s help and we are the MC

Heights’ and help refugees to be

Fortunately, I have been involved in the AUT mentoring programme for the last two

years, and I had a mentor who guided and helped me prepare for school assessments,

goal setting and have better control on my career.

Having the guidance,

encouragement and support of a

trusted and experienced mentor

provided me a broad range of

benefits, which ultimately lead to

improve my performance in my

assessments and exams. In addition,

this programme helped me improve

provided an opportunity to be

involved in this programme and

would like to continue with it next

year as I benefited a lot from it.

The Duke of Edinburgh is a

youth awards programme

that recognises

adolescents and young

adults for completing a

series of self-improvement


It challenges young people to

dream big and discover their

potential. In the programme there

are three levels; Bronze being the

first, Silver being the second and

Gold being the last.

We had 18 students participating in

the Duke of Edinburgh programme

this year. We were doing the bronze

award that takes a total of six

months to complete. The goals for

the award were to learn a new skill

(or develop an existing one), get

physically active, give service to their

communities, and take part in an


The aim of the Duke of Edinburgh

Award is to help challenge young

students to leave their comfort

zones. It helped us build confidence

in ourselves and have greater


The most exciting part of the

award was going on an adventure

where we had to walk up to the

Pinnacles Hut in the Kauaeranga

Valley, located all the way in the

Coromandel. We learnt about the

important equipment we had to

take, the clothing and shoes we had

to wear in certain environments and

where we were going to walk.

The walk turned out to be more

exciting once we started the hike.

It took three to four hours to get to

our destination.

On the first day of the hike,

there were a lot of stairs which

made the walk harder and more

challenging, but with the support

and encouragement from the Duke

of Edinburgh team, we all managed

to keep going. The place we stayed

in was a bit cold and we had to

eat from already packaged food.

Although it was challenging and

hard, we all pulled through and

came out of our comfort zone.

After that experience, I learnt how

to survive in certain environments

and how to read a map. Personally, I

also learnt what difficult things my

body can take and how self-esteem

can really help me in challenging

situations in life.

Well done to everyone who

completed this award and who

committed to the adventure. Also a

big thank you to the teachers and

staff who organised this opportunity

for us. Thank you very much.

The school library plays a

huge role in our school. It

is integral to the teaching

and learning process.

This year has been another

amazing, yet successful year for our

phenomenal student librarians.

We have had more and more

students wanting to become

librarians. Our collaborative student

librarian group works alongside

Mrs. Kumar and Ms. Blackwood

to ensure that all members of the

school have equitable access to

books, computers, equipment,

research materials and a safe

learning environment. All librarians

are rostered on once a week to

complete duties, either sitting

behind the issue desk, clearing and

shelving books, being in charge of

the workroom or serving our peers

who need assistance.

Throughout this year our library

has been a happy, busy place with

many events such as celebrating

the cultural language weeks. For

Samoan Language Week, Mrs

Kumar dressed our mannequins in

beautiful Samoan attire to showcase

the traditional costumes as well as

setting out display books to capture

student interest in learning about

the different cultures and languages.

This happens for all other language

weeks including Tongan, Cook Island

and Māori. During lunchtimes the

library runs cultural activities.

For Māori Language Week, students

came in and made poi. This helps

engage students to participate in

celebrating the importance of the

diverse cultures in our school.

During Samoan Language Week

the library hosted a special author

visit. We were fortunate enough

to have author Helen Tau’au Filisi

and Samoan Translator Tofilau Fritz

Filisi visit with their inspiring and

informative talk.

Every year the library is responsible

for supporting and helping to

raise money for cancer awareness.

Librarians come in the morning to

sell daffodils around the school for

Daffodil Day. This year we raised


The library is always a welcoming

place for everyone. Each year we

have our Intermediate students

from schools such as Viscount, Koru,

Sir Douglas Bader, Robertson Road

and Māngere Central come in each

day to experience the astounding

environment and opportunities

Māngere College has to offer for

their up and coming journey into

secondary school. It was great to see

the intermediate students surprised

to see the variety of books that our

library can offer.

Being a student librarian is fun and

enjoyable. We have the opportunity

to gain responsibility, develop our

work ethic and confidence to help

and provide a library service for our

peers and school community. It has

been a great year and I’m sure the

library team has many more great

things planned for our library in the

new year.

work together to identify

several areas in which to

make a difference in the


The role of the Sports Council is

to assist in the delivery of sport

within Māngere College to enable

all students to access a high quality

sporting experience.

I believe that we have helped create

a successful sporting environment

at Māngere College this year, which

encouraged student participation,

achievement and enjoyment while

fostering community involvement.

Towards the end of term 2, we

organised a project where the

school has been generously donated

over 25 pairs of rugby boots for the

rugby season by Best Foot Forward

(a partnership with BNZ and Blues

Rugby). The boots definitely allowed

more students to play more rugby

and made it easier for those who

didn’t necessarily have a pair of their

own. It was a fruitful event where

we had three rugby players from the

Blues team including ex MC student

Ofa Tu’ungafasi among the guest

speakers, with a lot of questions

answered and many were inspired.

In term 3, we worked alongside the

Student Council to run a fun filled

action packed week of sports in the

school and it was a whole school

event. Each of us were allocated

jobs to do, as well as being given

the role of organising a sport each

day with the assistance of the team.

There were activities across every

interval and lunchtime as well as

competitions, quizzes and staff

vs students events. Overall, with

great teamwork and better student

participation each day, we were able

to raise over $400 for World Vision.

We also helped with the

organisation and running of a

Sports Awards evening where we

recognised and celebrated along

with students who were outstanding

in their sports performances.

possible around the school and the community.

One of our biggest events was the

here at MC for both teachers and

students to enjoy.

During the course of Term 2 we

started planning how to fundraise.

all came to the conclusion that

we would host a sports week with

one of the days being a Teacher vs

actively competing.

managed to accomplish a lot in the

I would also like to take mention

of the 2 teachers in charge of the

and great mentors in helping with

A lot of people think of Hawaii as a

holiday destination, but for a first-timer

in Hawaii it was overwhelming seeing

the state that place is in.

One small village had the same population as New

Zealand living there. Being an ambassador for the Sea

Cleaner’s association taught me about the terrible

state that Hawaii is in.

In one week we collected 4.1 million tonnes of rubbish.

The currents in Hawaii are very strong which means

that rubbish will be washed ashore. Students in local

schools and teachers did not know that they had such

a tragedy. Our mission was to make a change, and I

think a lot of people will make changes in their lives,

It was Cee-Jay’s cleaning up at her local area of Ihumatao

ventures and products. The businesses developed

by students were all a great success.

with the company name

Auckland City Council and

created a fish habitat for

Tararata Stream which is

located near our school.

Students created a fish habitat from recycled

pallets and used cement slabs. They sold each

habitat to Auckland City Council for $150.

They also got $100 from SEED Funding for

their excellent performance in presenting their

business idea (called a ‘pitch’).

Selling their product at the Night Market at

Manurewa High School are Daisy, Lydia, Samira

and Hannah.

‘DHLS’ Group

DHLS had 6 members in

their group. They created

neck warmers from travel

pillows. Auckland Airport

collects all of the travel

pillows that tourists leave

behind at the airport.

They are collected by ‘ME Family

Services’ and Peter Sykes who is the

CEO of the company and also one of

our mentors who provided us with

used travel pillows.

The students altered the product

and developed neck warmers from

them. They used their own cultural

patterned material and made covers

for the neck warmers. They then

created their own wheat bags and

attached them to the neck warmers.

Her Husbands Betrayal

Ice balls fall from the

mountaintop as the wind

lifts strands of her hair.

At this very moment, she’s standing

alone thinking about how wonderful

and remarkable this life can be.

Her red heels duplicate the colour

painted on her lips and attracts the

attention of her black Adidas t-shirt.

Her ripped jeans favour the public’s

tastes and her smile is brighter than

the stars in the sky. Her cosy coat

delivers more comfort and wraps

her warm from the bristling wind.

People see her as Rapunzel, not

because of some evil stepmother,

or because she was trapped up in

a castle but because of the long

glowing hair that brings out the

beauty in her. Her eyes turn lighter

brown when it attracts the sun, until

one night when she was just freely

walking to her house she witnessed

a scandalous matter!

DUM...DUM...DUM... “WHO’S this?”

“What is she doing with my

HUSBAND?” “Why is she HERE ?”

Difficult questions trace through

her head as she drowns in a sea of

grief. Her face fills with hate and

torture; she can’t think but to be the

bystander in this cruel view. Why?

Why? How can someone who vowed

will spend the rest of his years with

her do something so horrible and

disgusting?! She wipes the pain

and tears off her face and stumbles

down the stairs.

She packs everything and puts all

her clothes in a suitcase, and as she

walks to the door, her husband runs

to grab her. She drops the suitcase

and the room abruptly turns quiet,

he loosens his hand a bit, but this

time she throws her emotion into

his face before she left without a

word or sound. As she drove away,

her husband screams out her name

with so much anger and contrite.

The man she thought she loved

turned out to be the monster in her


About a month later, she’s living at

her best friend’s house. She’s in the

process of trying to forget the past

and move on, but the pain always

hits her.

‘Her cosy coat

comfort and

wraps her

This hurt that she is carrying is

so remorseful she can’t bear this

burden. She feels abandoned and

deceived from what’s happened,

that a girl who people thought was

so perfect and so beautiful would

end up to be the one who suffers.

After several years, she is now

enjoying life with her best friend;

she is trying to forgive herself for the

blindness that let others betray her

because sometimes a good heart

cannot see the bad. She smiles

through the pain and suffering but

she will never forget that life is like

a bicycle, to keep your balance you

must keep moving on.

Succes Stories:

Noteworthy at Stand Up Stand Out 2018

Noteworthy at Performing Arts Night

‘Noteworthy’ Junior Choir:

Noteworthy started this

year with a small group

of talented Year 9 & 10

students and has grown

to become a tight-knit

and committed group of

young vocalists who have

grown immensely in their

short time together.

Only a few months after first

forming, they were invited to

perform at the Māngere Town

Centre Library as part of our NZ

Music Month celebrations. The

following month, they performed

at the annual Māngere College

Performing Arts Night to a packed

out crowd; performing both as

an individual group, and also

providing vocals for multiple dance

performance items. Not long after

this, they took a leap of faith and

entered the Vocal Group category

of the prestigious Stand Up

Stand Out competition, receiving

excellent feedback from the judges,

who commented on a ‘great

performance’ that featured ‘lovely

Junior Drumline

harmonies, beautiful tones and

strong leads’.

After a busy and rewarding couple

of terms, Noteworthy closed out the

year performing at the end of year

school prize giving ceremonies, as

well as being invited to present a

mini-concert at the annual Māngere

Bridge Santa Parade.

of a cohort of promising

young leaders selected

from South Auckland

schools who were given

the chance to creatively

re-story the world they live

in, in collaboration with

the Blackfriars Theatre


The project, which was showcased

in June at the Māngere Arts

Centre, challenged stereotypes and

explored themes of alofa, reciprocity,

resilience and respect. Te Rehu was

chosen as the Māngere College

Wayfinder for the project. Wayfinders

were chosen as fierce changemakers

who advocate for change.

Te Rehu writes, “I want change

in our learning, in education and

job opportunities. I’m fighting for

freedom. I want our people to think

for themselves and decide what’s

best for our communities.”

value of being committed

to your work. TJ Manuel, one

of the founders of RepFM

also spoke about his journey

throughout his school

years and then into his

professional career, sharing

how he had such a passion

for music, in particular music

in South Auckland. He set

up his own radio station

and recording studio, and

this became the platform to

work with many successful

artists. He explained the

importance of surrounding

yourself with motivated

friends who will encourage

you to succeed and that if

you find something you love,

work at it and don’t give up

- it’s worth investing time in

your passion. The afternoon

Year 10 students enjoying the concert

Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra in action

APO Discovery Concert Trip to

Auckland Town Hall

On Wednesday 2nd May,

thirty Year 10 music students

had the opportunity to

travel to the Auckland Town

Hall to hear the Auckland

Philharmonia Orchestra, live

in concert.

This concert was a special showcase

which followed the journey of

orchestral music, looking at how

it has developed from the 16th

Century to today.

The concert kicked off with the

sensational ‘Four Seasons’ by Vivaldi;

a profile of one of the earliest

examples of storytelling. Following

on from this was a journey through

musical history, with pieces by

Mozart, Mendelssohn, Dvorak,

Rachmaninov and Bernstein.

Interests were peaked as the last

piece was announced, a new work

by the APO’s Young Composer

in Residence, Kirsten Strom.

The piece, ‘Wake Up Call’, saw

orchestra members start the piece

whilst on their phones, seemingly

uninterested in beginning the piece

– how bizarre! One by one they

‘woke up’ and the piece came to

life. It was rhythmic, exciting, and

somewhat suspenseful, and even

included clapping, tapping and

stomping sections. Within the space

of two hours, students were taken

on a journey of musical discovery

which opened their eyes to the

possibilities in music – whether as a

performer, composer, conductor, or

even a committed music enthusiast!

During terms 2 and 3 all Dance

classes focused on performance

work, developing their skill and

technique across a variety of

genres. Topping off term 2 with a

spectacular Performing Arts night,

which was highlighted by two class

performances of Hairspray (year

11) and Dive (years 12 and 13).

In addition to this, at the start of

term 3 we were very lucky to have

a team of students from Unitec

come in and run a performance

and composition workshop with

Dance students from years 10-13.

As a result of that day, one of our

talented junior dancers Anne has

been regularly training with Unitec

as part of a youth contemporary

dance group.

Year 10 Dance has had a great

year, highlighted particularly by the

collaborative piece we developed

with the year 10 Music class, which

concluded with the students

performing amazingly well in front

of their peers and an exclusive

audience of Mr Webb and members

of the ERO team. Another highlight

of the year 10 class has been our

musical theatre class dance which

has shown the skill and enthusiasm

our junior students have towards

dance in general.

Overall 2018 has been a great year

for Dance. Each year the ability of

the students increases and they

inevitably rise to the new challenges

placed before them.

Health Department 2018

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

just some of our highlights from this year.

junior PE

Our junior PE


is about

developing and

improving skills,

while learning

to work within a


This year we had an

emphasis on using

and developing

our interpersonal

skills to help others

and ourselves, to

understand the

importance of physical activity

and how it relates to our hauora


Throughout the year our

students have participated in a

variety of different sports and

activities including; athletics,

fitness, games, gymnastics

and swimming.

Our focus in athletics is

all about being the best

we can be. We take

part in different athletic

events such as sprinting, middledistance

running, long jump,

and throwing and consider how

we can improve our own

personal scores through good


In fitness, we look at how the

body responds to exercise and

ways to improve our fitness.

We consider different training

methods and the best ways

to meet our own personal

needs. We also consider how

regular exercise and good

eating habits can improve our


In games, we explore how

different strategies and

tactics can be used to

gain an advantage over

our opponents. We look

at offensive and defensive

strategies and how creating

space, marking and losing a

player, and good techniques

all play a part in helping our

team succeed. We look at

different games including

invasion games, striking

and fielding and net and

wall games. We also look at

different games from around

the world and consider how

these differ from what we

are used to and the influence

they have on society.

junior health

This year our junior health

program has had a facelift,

by including new units

such as ‘Ko wai au’ and

‘Net Safety’ in year 9.

As the world is ever changing so

is the content of our programmes.

Students are given the opportunity

to explore aspects about their

culture, values and how to

become responsible decision

makers. The aim of these

new programmes is to

build resilience through

strengthening their personal

identity and sense of selfidentity.

Through this we hope

that students will be able to

make a significant contribution

to the well-being of themselves

and others beyond the

how to become

In our senior PE

programme we

are able to offer

4 achievement

standards all

looking at building

and improving

on the students’

knowledge from

years 9 and 10.

In our first standard, we

focus on our interpersonal

skills and the students

create and work within

teams to coach and

officiate each other. This

really challenges our

students to listen and

understand each others’


In our second standard,

we challenge the students

to participate in a variety

of different games

and activities many of

which they have not

experienced before or are

not familiar with such as

archery, bowls or soccer.

Students are then asked

to consider some of the

factors that influence their

participation and how and

why they participated.

We also have a

performance standard

where students are

required to perform an

activity or sport to a high

standard on a regular


Our final standard is a

health standard looking

at promoting positive

sexuality. Although this is

a difficult and sometimes

embarrassing subject

we feel that it is vitally

important for all our

students to learn and

understand about this

subject as they mature

into adulthood.

Tongariro camp

During week 9 our

Student Leaders and

other Year 13 students in

Leadership roles went to

Tongariro National park for

a 5 night camp.

The camp had a focus on

developing their leadership skills

and allowing them to consider

what they as a group would like to

achieve this year.

All leaders were given the

opportunity to challenge themselves

both physically and mentally.

The students participated in a

variety of different activities, which

gave them the chance to practice

some of their leadership skills.

They represented themselves and

Māngere College very well and we

look forward to seeing what this

group of students can do into the

The Year 12 Sports

Leadership class

started the year with a

bang, with the group

organising and running

the big day out for the

year 9 students.

This was a fun filled day of games

and activities aimed at helping

the year 9 pupils get to know each

other. Activities included team

building games such as magic

stick and spiders web as well as

traditional games.

Year 13 Sports Leadership class

had a focus on different leadership

strategies in term one and

considered the strengths and

weaknesses of each. In term two

they had an opportunity to put

some of these into practice when

they planned and ran coaching

sessions for our Junior PE classes.

big day out

On Friday 16th of

February, the Year 9s had

their Big Day Out where

they all participated in

activities organised by the

Year 12 Sports Leadership


It took place on our own fields

where everyone involved

participated in the games including

the Student Leaders. The purpose

of this event was to give the Year 9s

a fun and competition, develop the

MC way and build team-work within

each form class. It was well worth a

day out of the classroom!

We played a game called ‘Scenarios’

where each form class presented

a short skit displaying the values of

Māngere College, which are Respect

and Responsibility.

All classes were very committed

to their acting and portrayal of

what the MC Way is which made

everything more enjoyable. The

day was finished off with a sausage

sizzle put on by teachers.

woodhill forest

The Level 2 Sports

Science classes went to

Woodhill Forest as a part

of their mountain biking

assessment looking at

risk management in an

outdoor setting.

The main focus was to plan a

mountain biking trip and look at

some of the possible risks associated

with it. The students had to prepare

a Safety Action Plan (SAP) outlining

the risks, what could be the major

cause of these risks and how they

were going to minimize these risks.

The students got a good insight

into how risk can be managed and

how to determine some potential

dangers in outdoor activities.

Many of us enjoyed ourselves a lot

despite the minor injuries that we

got along the unbalanced ride. It

was a really fun but a scary first

experience for most of us. It was

awesome with all the students

taking part in this new activity and

pushing themselves.

The ride was mixed with tracks

that were downhill and uphill.

One highlight was when some

people accidentally let go of the

bike handles while riding and

ended up crashing into the trees or

bushes, another highlight was going

through the steep down-hill tracks.

Well done to all students and a

special thank you to our sports

work and commitment.

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

Year 9 student at Māngere College.

• The Māngere College Senior Scholarships are awarded to deserving Year 10 students. These are

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

costs over their senior years.

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

at up to $1500 to assist students to meet the costs of tertiary study.
