Dear Parents/Caregivers Whakatauki Ma pango, ma whero, ka oti te mahi With red & with red the work is completed This whakatauki is particularly appropriate for the start of Term 2 as the Tauranga Girls’ College participation in the Gate Pa Commemorations has been very significant. The area of Gate Pa is important to our school and many students have learned a great deal about the event that took place 150 years ago. With the encouragement and support of our teachers our students have participated in research, in classroom activities and in music, art, drama, dance, poetry, speechmaking and Maori performing arts.

Our girls have been acknowledged and awarded prizes in a large number of areas and this is acknowledged later in this newsletter. To see the way the park at the top of the hill has been developed is a tribute to those who have been involved and it is now a very special place to visit. In addition we were proud to have our Head Girl, Adriana Bird and our Deputy Head Girl Molly Scoular-Sutton give the address at the ANZAC Day Civic Ceremony at Memorial Park and Adriana was also involved to offer a Remembrance at the Military Service at the Mission Cemetery. Later on ANZAC Day our Chorale lead the singing at the ANZAC Service at Bob Owens Village.

On Thursday this week much of that achievement is to be acknowledged at Elizabeth CafĂŠ in a sponsored event and then the term has really begun!

There are a large number of changes and events occurring within the school. Mrs Cowens is on Sabbatical Leave for all of the term and her research is an exploration of 21st Century Learning with visits to schools and teaching professionals in Asia and in Great Britain. I am in the Acting Principal role and we welcome Mr Andrew Chapman into the Deputy Principal role with responsibility for Year 11 Liaison, EOTC and Bus Administration as a well as a raft of other responsibilities, and Mrs Roberta Gover into the Acting Head of Department Computing role. The school continues to be on a major renovation programme with the Sports Hall/Gymnasium area nearly completed and the Administration and Office area being transferred to the newly refurbished Library while their area is attacked and re-developed. Property and Technology staff members have worked long hours over the holiday period to ensure the school was ready for the new term and students and staff had to adjust to changes which always accompany building sites which are active while normal work goes on.

Three Tauranga Girls’ College Students Receive Acorn Foundation Scholarship Dale Carnegie Course Through the generosity of the Acorn Foundation and donors Roy and Mary McGowan, three Tauranga Girls’ College students along with twenty four Western Bay of Plenty Year 13 students will be participating in one of the most successful leadership development programmes in history, The Dale Carnegie Course. The program has transformed over 8,000,000 graduates in 86 countries over 100 years and is recognised by employers internationally with its ISO 9001 certification. The course has proven to be extremely effective in preparing young people for the “real world’. Since 2010, 72 students from Western Bay of Plenty schools successfully completed the course. Since their graduation the Dale Carnegie trainers have received positive feedback from the students, their parents, principals and teachers. “Through a collaborative effort, the Acorn Foundation, Dale Carnegie BOP Waikato, InStep, Parents and 9 Western BOP secondary schools, we are now able to offer this opportunity to a total of 27 of our young leaders, who are our most valuable future asset. The three Tauranga Girls’ College Year 13 students are Lily Wheeler, Tamara Miller and Emma Nielsen. The program is focused building essential skills for life and the work force, developing self confidence, communication, and people skills, leadership and managing stress and worry.” Andrea Shaw Senior Trainer, Dale Carnegie BOP/Waikato . The program is scheduled to run the beginning of July.

Leo Club The Tauranga Girls’ College LEO Club is now up and running! DG Richard Norris along with DG Elect Paula McWha and other invited guests took part in the Chartering event for this new club on Monday 14 April. Local Lions Clubs were well represented among the 100 plus attendees while parents and families looked on proudly. It is encouraging to see such a fine group of young people embrace the Lions philosophy of ‘service’ and committing to the principles of Lionism. Tauranga Girls’ College is to be congratulated for having the foresight to support this venture and the original 37 members are a credit to both the school and their families.

This year, we received more than a thousand essays from students in over 70 countries around the world, a great many of which contained a huge array of imaginative ideas for sustainable living, in addition to being of excellent quality and composition. “The Trust for Sustainable Living’s 2014 International Schools Essay Competition & Debate has a very strong international perspective which gives students the opportunity to work with some of the best young minds around, drawing inspiration from others, sharing knowledge and fostering cooperation.

There are elements of interest on the site and, so far, three teachers have wikis linked to the weebly, providing supporting material for their classes. The url is taurangagirlsenglish.weebly.com. Speech competitions: Three students Aine Blackman, Melanie Duff and Emily McCarthy participated in the Race Unity competition recently presenting very thoughtful speeches. It is pleasing to see the enthusiasm of students who make the effort to take up these opportunities. On Thursday 17 April our students presented speeches at the Gate Pa Speech Competition, held in our staff room. The speakers were Felicity Tomkins; Maraea Ranui and Danielle Waiari and Aine Blackman. Maraea Ranui won the competition and the other three were runners up. Other news: On the 07 May we will be taking some Junior students to Hamilton for a Literature Quiz.

Positive Behaviour for Learning Our school’s focus for Term Two is the importance of getting to class on time. To assist us with this focus, we need your support as parents and caregivers; together, we can make a difference. ”Oh dear, oh dear, I shall be too late!” Alice in Wonderland

Why Is Being Punctual Important? Being punctual shows you have integrity - if we say we are going to be somewhere at such and such time, our promise is broken if we are not on time. Being punctual shows you are dependable. Being punctual assures you’re at your best. When you are a little early, you have a few minutes to collect your thoughts, review your materials and be prepared for what lies ahead. Being punctual builds and reveals your discipline. If you are punctual, it shows you can organise your time and that you pay attention to detail. Being punctual shows your respect for others. Being late is a selfish act, for it puts your needs above another’s. Being late is a form of stealing. You are stealing somebody else’s time. Being late disturbs others. The student who arrives late interrupts the teacher and other students Being late strains your relationships. When you’re late in meeting other people, it makes them feel under-valued, that whatever you couldn’t pull yourself away from was more important.

Tips for Always Arriving on Time – please share this with your children If you are always late, own the problem and sort it out. Redefine punctuality as a matter of integrity. See it as a way of keeping your promises and try to put yourself in the other person’s shoes and imagine the inconvenience your lateness will cause them. Start taking note of the benefits of being punctual. You will gain huge respect from others for being reliable. See yourself as part of a team. When you meet your friend on time, you contribute to making the meeting an enjoyable one. This is the same for class. Find more constructive ways of getting your

adrenaline rush and feeling special. It’s understandable to like that feeling of being the centre of attention but it’s really kind of a ‘sad’ way to get your excitement. Similarly, always being late in order to avoid feeling “ordinary” or “conformist,” is a rather impoverished attempt at feeling like an individual. After all, there’s nothing unique about being selfish. Keep things in set places. When you get home, put your keys on a hook inside the door. Put your cell phone, wallet, and other pocket contents on the dresser/drawer. That way, when you’re going out the door the next day, you won’t be late because you had to rush all over the house looking for your gear. Leave important items by the door. If you have special things you need to remember to bring with you the next day — homework, PE gear, whatever — put them right by the door. Make a chart of how long you think many of your morning tasks take you. Write down things like: Get ready in morning: 20 minutes Make the bed and tidy your room – 10 minutes Eat breakfast and clean up: 10 minutes Prepare lunch or stop at shop for lunch – 10 minutes Travelling time: 20 minutes Extra time out aside ‘just in case’ – 15 minutes You may need to get out of bed by 7.00am to get to school by 8.35am. At Tauranga Girls’ College, in Term Two, there will be a weekly competition for all tutor classes and the top 10 tutor classes will be announced each week. These top 10 classes will enter a draw for one to be picked. We will also have a big draw at the end of the term for the top class. Please help Tauranga Girls’ College help your child. If we excuse our children for being late, we are letting bad habits control our children’s lives instead of ensuring that we are helping our children develop positive habits for their future. http://www.artofmanliness.com/2012/07/16/aman-is-punctual-the-importance-of-being-on-time/


Animal Care & Veterinary Nursing Course On April 4 I went on a course at the Polytech. The course was Animal Care and Veterinary Nursing. There were students from Tauranga Boys’ College, Matamata, Te Puna and Bethlehem. Altogether there were 17 of us. After checking we were all there, we watched a quick video on animal care, animal handling, veterinary and zoo management. It showed us what qualifications, skills and requirements were needed. We were also shown techniques and new skills for handling animals.

We were given a tour around to see all the animals. There were blue tongue skinks, budgies, rats, mice, ponies, pigs and many more. The highlight was dissecting lamb organs and a rat. For the lamb we had to do a procedure, look for certain body organs, like heart and lungs. We had to check for infection or disease, see how the heart worked, and, for example where the deoxygenated blood came from. We then dissected a rat that had been defrosted for 6 hours. It smelt really bad. We had to find its heart, lungs and stomach. We then looked at the brain to see what it looked like. The brain was very tiny, and had many coloured veins. This was a cool experience, inspirational and very interesting. I enjoyed it very much and look forward to continuing through animal handling. Thank you! Josie Paetai
