Onslow and Newlands College’s combined have 22 students (including Year 9 students, Rangiwaitatao Samson, Ngahuia Mitai-Ngatai, Chantel Gates and Karson Paratene) performing as Te Karukaru Onamata at 9.45 am on Friday 12 July at Te Rauparaha stadium in Porirua. Tickets are available from http://www.ticketdirect.co.nz

Since Term One, Week Two they have been practising for this regional competition aiming to gain a place on the National stage in Gisborne next year 2014. They did some of their bracket items in assembly at Newlands College on Tuesday 2 July and gave a stunning performance that impressed the whole school. A student perspective and some photos from the event will come soon!

      A video was taken and this is going to be packaged as a DVD and sold through the school. I’m hoping to get a couple of photos up here once I track them down. An outstanding result from an outstanding effort. Everyone is very proud of what the kids created.
