Junior Awards Ceremony 2018

The last formal event of the year was the Junior Awards Ceremony, a celebration and recognition of those students who have had an outstanding year.

Students can achieve awards in Academic Excellence, Industry and Service to the School.

Principal, Deidre Shea offered her congratulations to all those students who had worked hard to achieve their personal goals this year, whether or not they were being honoured as award winners. Students were encouraged to spend some time in the holidays thinking about what they would like to achieve next year, which for the Year 10 students will be the first year of NCEA. Ms Shea’s full address is published on this website.

It was fabulous to have some of our Senior students come back to school to participate in the ceremony. A huge thank you to the Jazz Band, (performers: Janie Pulu, Jacob Ngan-Sue, Elliot Soffe, Jerome Jim, Osamu Toafua, Josiah Aliimalemanu) for entertaining us with ‘Work Song’ by Nat Adderly, and with Leilani Andrews on vocals performing Adele’s, ‘If I Ain’t Got You’.

Dance students, Ngatz Rawiri, Alice Huang, Vanessa Ly, Paige Campbell, Sol Judicpa, Olano Khadija and Aeya Panceras, performed a captivating dance entitled ‘Vibes’ which was choreographed by Miss Dobbie in collaboration wit the Year 12 dance students.

The ceremony ended with speeches from both Head Prefects Emma Tuave and Sione Ufi who encouraged every student to take all the opportunities offered to them, to know their “why”, to work hard and to enjoy these very special years at OHS.
