Ms Shea welcomed students to the second full senior assembly of the year. She reminded students that we are already in week seven of an 11 week term and that every student should be striving toward achieving 14 credits in each of their subjects before the end of the year. Every student should be aiming for excellence. We would like to see at least 70% of you achieve UE.

They have developed a traffic light system so that when you buy something from the cafe, it will be labelled either Green, for eat often, Amber, this should be eaten less often perhaps only once a week or Red for foods that should be occasional treats. They will be given out some Green labelled treats for free next week.

The fundraising group will coordinate raising funds for causes like Daffodil Day and the 40 Hour Famine, while the humanities group will raise awareness of important social issues.
To conclude the assembly Holly Hu and Reuben Smith from the Arts Council then introduced a guest performer to the school, Ramon Narayan from Active Education who is a member of the South Auckland Poets Collective. Ramon performed a fantastic Spoken Word poem and encouraged any student who had something to say to join the new OHS spoken word club, LAC Poets.
