As a form of a social action for Level 3 Sociology, a pamphlet was created in order to raise awareness and gain support from the wider community. The pamphlet covers the issues of Name Suppression and what you can do to take part in the campaign. We urge you to read it and get behind the campaign, showing your support! – Kayla and Janet (year 13 students)

The Year 12 Biologists made the ferry trip to Tiri Tiri Matangi on Wednesday in order to learn their population genetics in greater depth. The weather was just right for the visit. The students were guided around a section of the island viewing the translocated bird species before listening to an informative talk on genetic drift and the difficulties of maintaining successful breeding programmes.

On Thursday 18th September we warmly welcomed parents to an evening in the Staffroom to update them on the progress of our Year 11 Pasifika group and future plans for this group of students. We also invited parents of our current year 10 students who will be involved next year.
 We have tried lots of different ways this year to help our Pasifika students achieve and this evening was an opportunity to celebrate this, enjoy some refreshments together,reflect and look towards the future.

Heath Rattey is an ex-pupil of Glenfield College, and is currently going through a really hard time. He has been diagnosed with 2 brain tumors, both in critical locations. His partner Alex, is currently fundraising to get him life saving surgery in Australia. Since Sunday, she has helped to raise over $45,000 of the $150,000 they need. They have 3 weeks to raise as much as we can- its a huge task, but if they can get the whole community involved they might just do it.

Here is a link to Heath’s give a little page. Please help out if you can.
