LEADERSHIP The Head Prefect’s Prize-giving Speech

Te¯na koutou, te¯na koutou, te¯na koutou katoa. Nau mai haere mai. Nga mihi nui ki matua Wynne, te¯na¯ koe. Nga mihi nui Matua Lindo, te¯na¯ koe. Nga mihi nui matua Pickering, te¯na¯ koe. Nga mihi nui ki matua Donaldson, te¯na¯ koe. Welcome all to a celebration of what has been an extraordinary year – one where Captain Spock’s “Live long and prosper” has been tested more than ever. College continues to be a platform for boys to prosper in all aspects of life, and with challenges such as the pandemic, this school has just been given more opportunity to grow. Just this year we’ve seen the Fiddlesticks percussion group become a finalist at the South Island Regional Percussion competition; a student-initiated charitable tutoring company, Academe, to help tutor victims of the mosque attacks; the top eight win silver at Maadi; one of the most unique and entertaining productions in recent history, and perhaps, most impressive of them all, a national championship in basketball. It truly has been a year to remember. I’d like to congratulate all that are receiving prizes today but, equally, I want to acknowledge all those boys who are not receiving a prize but have worked hard, given their time to others and made College life that much better for their contribution. As we all know, prizes are recognition for many hours of practice, training, dedication and passion towards a particular subject, but only one person gets a prize – and many more of you also deserve accolades.
