Mackenzie Butler was passionate about Child rights, Reese Daniel- Hoani had an informative speech about Mental Health and the practical things we can do to help our whaanau and friends. Jodie Ranui gave an engaging speech on Child poverty and what we can do to help children who are suffering. Myah Gallichan shared a great story about a local woman who looked after a family for a term in their home and how all of us can do kind acts of service for others. Our last speaker was April Osborne who spoke about relationships and how high school sweethearts is just a myth or is it? We would like to thank our judges, Mr Jarnet our principal, Adele Hauwai a motivational speaker and entrepreneur, Autumn McCormick one of our Deputy Head Students for their advice and feedback to our students.
