Student Exec 2019

Ms Maria Heitkonig —

On the 27th through to the 29th January, Simon and I took our Student Exec team out to Peel Forest Eco Lodge.  It was a fantastic opportunity to get to know the team as well as giving us the opportunity to discuss, plan, and reflect.

This year's Exec is an amazing group and they have many ideas and initiatives.  The team are:

Head Girl - Amelia Houston

Head Boy - Karma Gyeltshen

Deputy Head Girl - Connie McFarlane

Deputy Head Boy - Jack Rusbridge

MacDonald House Captain - Jacob Price

Tripp House Captain - Lydia Wilson

Acland House Captain - Milly Autridge

Cox House Captain - Jemma Hayes

Rangitahi Leader - Alesha Martin

Cultural Captain - Bella Kircher

Sports Captains - Lucy Harrison and Tom Harding

BOT Rep - Olivia Paton

We are off to a strong start with the Exec keen to connect with students, staff and our community.  We were fortunate to have many staff make the effort to come out to the camp to meet with the students.  Many thanks to Marie Donaldson and Eve who worked with the students on their mihi's, the powhiri and taught them games.  Cate's talk about personality types had the students thinking and talking for a good while.  It was wonderful to see PACMAN (sans the man, unfortunately), Eliza, Jane, Bronnie, Kate, Andy, Amy and Anita being taught a game by the Exec team in spite of the heat and the sandflies.

I look forward to working with the Exec this year and as a confident and proactive group, I am sure you will find they serve our school well.
