On Friday 25 May - a contingent of students from MBC and MGC headed to Whakatū (Nelson) to support speakers competing in the Regional Ngā Manu Kōrero ki Te Tau Ihu competition.
The MGC speakers were Jemma Hart (Korimako and Pei Te Hurinui, Senior English and Māori Sections), Rhylee Baker (Sir Turi Carroll Junior English section) and Te Ao Marama Nepia (Rawhiti Ihaka Junior Māori section). The whole day was amazing and our kohine did us proud.
Te Ao Marama (left) won the Rawhiti Ihaka Junior Māori section. Jemma (middle) won the impromptu English and placed second overall in both sections. Rhylee (not in picture) placed second overall.
Congratulations to Te Ao Marama who has qualified for the National Ngā Manu Kōrero Competition in Term 3. Ka wani kē koutou!
Kia ora koutou
At the request of the new Minister of Education the business plan developed in 2014 and 2015 for the redevelopment of MGC & MBC is being reviewed. This will begin with a visit to both schools from a team from the Ministry to inspect the condition of our buildings this Friday.

Kia ora kōhine ma! Kōmiti Māori is an interest committee that is for any student with a passion and a drive for Te Ao Māori, the development and well being of Māori students and the passion to incorporate change for Māori throughout the kura.
Being apart of this committee allows you to have a huge say in what goes on in the kura, whilst giving you the opportunity to have a positive impact on the school community and the wider community.
You get to have your ideas and opinions heard and acted upon, attend fun activities, weekly meetings and get to have a lot of delicious kai!
