a prefect to be a successful College student. If after five years you can see yourself in the mirrors with our school's virtues, you can be proud of your efforts. College’s motto is Bene tradita, bene servanda – Good traditions, well maintained. Without the hierarchy of the past, you all have a unique opportunity to establish your own “good tradition” where everyone is treated with kindness and respect, and people are continually lifted up. I have experienced this behaviour in my rugby team and believe there is no stronger sense of camaraderie and trust between teammates than when you are performing a haka together. Embrace New Zealand's biculturalism and Ma¯ ori culture at College. Teacher David Chambers is leaving behind a legacy that I trust

you will not only maintain in the future, but also build upon. In closing, I hope you all have a wonderful and relaxing holiday. Reflect on the advice I have given and take this unique time we find ourselves in to explore the beauty of our own backyard. Ahakoa nga¯ ueue, Kia kaha, kia toa, kia manawanui. When you find things that are difficult in life, Stand strong, stand tall and be of great heart No ¯ reira, te¯ na¯ koutou, te¯ na¯ koutou, te¯ na¯ tatou katoa.
