Our teams have again left their mark on New Zealand Robotics.  One senior and three junior teams attended the NZ National Robotics tournament during the weekend of 23rd - 25th of February.
Congratulations to our senior team, which included Alice Cerdeira, Cory Dyer and PK Wadsworth romped home as Tournament and National Champions. They not only achieved this, but also won the prestigious Engineering Design Award.
They will be competing in both those categories against 500 International teams at the Robotics World Championships in Kentucky, USA  starting on 24th April.  We wish them all the best of luck.
One of our Junior teams, which included  Braedyn Denney, Harry Parkes, Dylan Kemp-Green and Casey Flood reached the quarter finals. 
The other teams, which included Aria Smart, Jakob Neas, Tim Hauck, Arnold Reuben, Liam Goldingham, Luka Matic and Pacey Landon, ranked in the top 30, out of 70 teams competing at the NZ Nationals.



Welcome Tamadai Hijirigaoka Junior High School

This week the International Department welcomed a group of 20 Japanese students from Tamadai Hijirigaoka Junior High School to Otumoetai College for a short visit . These students were welcomed to the college by the Maori students. This was a wonderful experience that they all enjoyed. All of the visiting students have been given a Kiwi buddy to help them in classes. We wish them a happy time at Otumoetai College and in Tauranga.
