Education: Rosmini College
Tots and Toddlers
Rosmini College Year 12 students spent the second week of April taking part in the New Zealand Plunket-facilitated Tots and Toddlers programme as part of their Catholic Religious Education course.
Tots and Toddlers is an interactive life skills course designed to introduce students to the realities of parenting. Local Plunket Parent Volunteers bring their babies and toddlers into the school and talk to students about being a parent. The students are able to interact with these babies and toddlers and learn about the realities of parenting through such practical activities as bathing, play and changing nappies. Tots and Toddlers is based on Unit Standard 10021 Describe the Basic Needs of Children in an Early Childhood Education Service and it is worth three NCEA credits.
Stations of the Cross
Rosmini College and Carmel College's annual performance of 'Stations of the Cross' (World Youth Day Version) was held at St Joseph's Church on Wednesday, 27th March at 7pm. This is the 23rd year that Carmel College and Rosmini College Year 13 students have presented this ancient liturgy in mime and music.
Japanense Student Excellence
Several Japanese students have received an Excellence Certificate from the New Zealand Association of Language Teachers (NZALT).
Their NCEA Japanese language results are excellent. As result of their hard work and positive attitude these students deserve recognition. Congratulations.Y13: Young Hyun (Brian) Kim, Andrew Kim, Beomseo (Peter) Park, Y12: Ethan Breinhorst, Jason Mandajos
Rosmini's Jack Simpson has been busy representing New Zealand sailing again. Jack and Markus Sommerville have won the 29er division at the 2013 RYA Youth National Championships which wrapped up on April 5th in Largs, Scotland. The victory bodes well for Jack and Markus, both Wakatere Boating Club sailors, who have been selected to represent New Zealand in the 29er at the 2013 ISAF Sailing Youth World Championships on in July in Cyprus, and were using this regatta as a lead-up event. We wish them both the best of luck in this event.
