Victoria University Microbiology Trip

Over the Easter vacation our HoD Science, Dr Geoff Osborn and Ms Lee Masters took a 17 strong student group to Victoria University to participate in a Science workshop on monitoring chemical and microbiological water quality. Learning about the Science that will help us understand the health of our own Awa was amazing. Big, big thank you's go the PTC Trust, School of Biological Science and Te Ropu Awhina Science Outreach for making this happen.

Waka Ama Feedback

We have received the following awesome feedback about our Waka Ama crews.

"Tēnā koutou katoa,
It has been brought to my notice by Ngāti Rangiteāorere Kuia Rangimāhuta Easthope that we should send you an email.

Both Rangimahuta & I were very impressed by the behaviour displayed by the students of Whanganui City College who attended the recent NZ Waka Ama Secondary School Championships held in Rotorua, from the 28th March - 31st March, 2017.

Your students stayed at our Mataikōtare Marae, Ngāti Rangiteāorere, Te Ngae Junction, Rotorua.

Your Deputy Principal and other Staff and Supporters showed great leadership and respect and acknwledgement of the facilities provided for them by Ngāti Rangiteāorere during their Marae stay, and I believe they were great ambassadors for your school while visiting Rotorua.  

We have many schools that visit Rotorua that stay at Ngāti Rangiteāorere, your school students will be in the top bracket for respect, acknowledgement & behaviour while staying on our Marae.

Tēnei ka mihi ake ki a koutou katoa.

Na Kēneti."
