Futsal Champs

On Friday 2nd March the Bay of Plenty Secondary Schools Futsal Champs were held over at ASB Arena. This year we had three teams involved, two senior girls and a junior boys’ team. The boy’s team had a couple of tough games but managed to stick with the teams well. Unfortunately they didn’t finish in the top three. The senior girls teams were in separate pools for the champs, and unfortunately faced each other in the semi-final, it was an outstanding game with the A team winning only 3-2.  The B team went on to play Trident Girls, and won to finish third, and the A girls played Hillcrest High School in the finals, also winning by one goal to claim the Bay of Plenty Secondary School Senior Girls Futsal Title.


Māori Youth Summit

Ten students were invited to attend a two day Māori Youth Summit called He Rangatahi He Anamata on 27 - 28 February at ASB Arena.
The students described the experience as ‘amazing’ and it was an opportunity for our rangatahi to mingle with peers, make new connections and expand their horizons.
During the duration of the two days, our students were blessed to have met and listened to a variety of Māori role models from all over Aotearoa, including businessmen, politicians and other aspiring Māori. Each of the speakers inspired and provided worthwhile advice to our rangatahi about what the future could hold for them.
Students described the Youth Summit as an event created for us young Māori to learn our worth and how to take our talents and apply them. They took part in many workshops that gave opportunities to get to know each other, share knowledge and learn who we are and how we can use our talents purposefully.
