Powhiri welcoming new students and staff

On Thursday 31 January we proudly welcomed students and staff new to our College for 2019 with a Powhiri.


5 February  Year 11 Students Janina Buot, Jyordanna Davey and Tia-Calais Remuera (left to right below, and all from 11DN) were recently part of the winning U16 HoopNational team at the Eltham Melbourne Junior Basketball tournament - the world's largest youth basketball tournament.  Well done on your achievement.

The National Maori Basketball Tournament was held in Rotorua at the end of January.  Sacred Heart College Year 11 students Brooke McKenzie (11TF), Peta Apineru (11DN) and Tayla-Kei Rahui-Laulau (11DN) represented Te Awa Kairangi in the U17 Kotiro team.  The team did well to place second overall in their grade.  Well done girls.

Week 1 News Bulletin


Music Success

Congratulations to Year 9 student violinist Chloe Bothwell (10PD) who at the end of last year successfully auditioned for the 2019 New Zealand Secondary Schools' Symphony Orchestra (NZSSSO). This year the NZSSSO had a particularly high number and standard of applicants, many of whom are working at or above the grade 8 level. This is Chloé's first time to audition and she's done exceptionally well and earned herself a position amongst NZ's top secondary school musicians to represent their schools at a national level. They will meet during April 2019 in Christchurch for five days of intensive rehearsals and a public concert.

Chloe was also selected to participate in a special rehearsal with Orchestra Wellington - directed by Marc Taddei - this is a collaboration between Orchestra Wellington and selected young musicians within the Wellington region.  Wonderful achievements Chloe.


31 January  We welcomed some of our International students today.  Pictured here with Principal Maria Potter.
