Puhoro Trip to Houston


During the recent school holidays, two of our students Ruairi Daniela and Shelby Nicholson attended a fully funded trip to Houston, Texas as part of the Pūhoro Maori STEM Academy run by Massey University. Ruari was recently interviewed by the Manawatu Standard to talk about the trip. Click here to read the full article. Shelby has also written an excellent account of their trip.

Year 10 Camps 2018

Year 10 Camps will run during Week 7 of Term 4 (26 November - 30 November 2018). These camps give students the chance to experience new things that cannot be taught in the classroom environment. Students who participate in these camps come back with stories of overcoming challenges, working co-operatively and having heaps of fun.

Camps are run in groups of up to 30 people and the students select the camp that appeals most. Please note that at times students may not always get their first choice. Camp choice forms have been issued to Year 10 students. Students must return these forms by Friday 1 June. 

These camps range in price but can cost as much as $500. As this is a costly exercise, particularly so close to Christmas, we can set up automatic payments anytime to help budget for this. Forms are available at the office. Alternatively, you can contribute to your student’s camp fund at any time by making a small payment at the school office or online via the Portal. 

A copy of the camp letter and choice form can be downloaded here.
