Interschool Senior Debating

Hastings Girls' High School - Ngā Tau Huia o Ākina hosted one of the first rounds of senior debating yesterday. We hosted teams from both Karamū High School and Hastings Boys' High School with the moot of the first debates prepared being "This house believes that every citizen of New Zealand should be entitled to a basic income regardless of employment status".

The debates were of a high quality given that teams had a few weeks to prepare. Our students competed against Karamū Year 13s and were affirming. For a new team, they were unlucky with Karamū creating strong arguments against the moot on this debate. Second debates of the day were limited prep so teams only had 30 minutes to prepare for the moot which was "This house believes governments should prioritise space exploration over solving issues on Earth". This debate saw our students up against Karamū Year 12s and we were negating with Karamū beating our team by just 4 points.

Our senior team should be commended taking on this challenge as it's not easy and these tough match-ups against some good teams will build our confidence and skills moving forward. Well done to Maia, Annah, Ocean and Mennat, our senior debating team for 2024!

Outdoors Hub Camp Waimārama

The two Exploring the Great Outdoors Hubs spent two days at Waimārama to finish off the term's focus on Te Tātahi - The Beach. The students had to set up camp, cook dinner and survive a wee storm during the night. Whilst on the beach we explored the Waimārama Surf Lifesaving Club and spent time up the Lifeguard Tower identifying rips and the different types of waves. In doing this, they were able to locate a safe place for us to swim. 

3x3 Basketball Nationals

Good luck to Te Raukura Harris, Charlotte Tuliau, Nadia de Thierry and Maieke Thompson for tomorrow's Basketball games. We will keep everyone updated on how they do via our Facebook page.
