It is great to be back here at school and boy has it been quite a busy few days.
Some of the Student Councillors have been involved in preparing for the ANZAC Day Memorial which was held, at GIS, on Monday 20th April. The memorial was a great success! We even created a Field of Remembrance, with white crosses, to commemorate those who had fallen. During out memorial service, Cole and Romeo were flag bearers while Mere and Mel read some poems and Mel also sang a beautiful rendition of "Amazing Grace".
Up & Coming Events:
So another thing that the Councillors have been up to is preparing for a big event which is leadership camp, which is going to be held on May 7th - 8th at Camp Adair in Hunua. Here the Student Councillors, Class Ambassadors and other leaders from different cultural groups etc, will be put out of their comfort zone and do extreme, outdoor activities such as: the Confidence Course, team building activities, the “Giant Ladder”, the Pampa Pole, the Rambo Bridge and many more. So be looking forward to a blog update soon after to see what different activities the leaders have been up to.
