As another busy term draws to a close, we recognised the hard mahi of many individuals and groups at this week’s, whole school Celebration Assembly.
The whanau classes represented by Marama Elliot-Keepa and Sadie Woodward presented a video of the Noho marae trip to Rotorua. Students had an amazing experience learning tikanga and having fun discovering Rotorua; the luge was a thrill for many. It is the whanaungatanga or sense of being like a family, developed by their shared experiences that is the most precious outcome of the trip.
Congratulations to all students who were presented with excellence awards and those students who were awarded school badges. In particular we would like to recognise the following students who received gold badges:
LAC Gold Badge
Olivia Clark Susannah Belto
Liam Ashby Olivia Bush
Rogie Flores Ronald Cousins
Lukaz Kum Jacky Siharath

An outstanding effort by the following students who received Platinum Academic Badges,
Stan Foster Atkins
Nu Phan- Huynh
The Year 9 Fakatoukatea Tongan group were presented with graduation certificates from Sepa Hausia- Schaumkel. They will enjoy a meal together along with Anahila Kanongata’a-Suisuiki and guest speakers this evening.
Students were treated to a mesmerizing dance performance from Timena Veni Moenoa, Mia Drury and Eastah Ponifasio, who in recognition of Tuvalu Language week combined Tuvalan music with contemporary Siva Samoa.
Senior Band members, Peter Muller, Joaquin Gabriel, Oliver Meade, Jayden Johnson and Wilson Mata played ‘Is This Love’ for the appreciative audience.
It was left to Head Prefects, Christina Elone and ‘Uluaki Fulivai Kavelata to conclude the assembly by reminding Year 13’s to be appreciative of their cohort, as their time at OHS draws to a close. While final exams are looming and there is still hard mahi ahead, they reminded students to have some fun, be safe, and to enjoy a welcome break!
