Throughout the year we offer our students various opportunities to experience a range of activities and trips. From camping in tents on Motutapu Island, to the whole school walking from Coast to Coast.
So tough it was named three times!!! Triple M stands for Mean, Metal, Machine. This is a challenge course for the students to take risks on during breaks.

Our Rugby Union open weight boys were fortunate enough to play against Dilworth's Year 9's at their new rural campus. The boys tried hard, but did not have much luck. A great game and experience was had by all.
In weeks nine and ten of Term 3, our students took time out of the curriculum and really focused on some quality pieces of art work.
The first of our tri-tournament games against Weymouth Intermediate School. The game was played hard and in good spirits. We were victorious, 6 tries to 3.
On a beautiful Thursday afternoon, the students made their way out to the courts to give our cross country course a try. All put in 110% effort (even those who weren't big fans of running). Congratulations to Rimu House who won the competition overall.
To kick start our new term construct 'Cultural Challenge and Empowerment' we took the whole school to Onehunga and walked the 14 K's to the city - what a great day!

CONGRATULATIONS to Kowhai for winning the event
In March 2012 the whole school camped on Motutapu Island in tents and had to cook for themselves. This tied in with Term 1's context - Personal Challenge and Empowerment. The challenge was the four hour trek to Rangitoto's summit before walking to camp and setting up base!
In order to raise funds for Training Camp and ensure the students could eat, they had to raise money by running a class stall at the school car boot sale.
The first chance our students get to compete against our other houses at the Paptoetoe Swimming pools.

Always a great start to the school year. Families meet their child's form teacher, have a picnic, sausage sizzle and play some party games!
