Course: A reading competition designed for Year 9 students. Teams of four students (+one reserve) together read a set of six books, and then compete with other school teams to answer quiz questions from the books. The competition challenges students to read widely and work collaboratively in a team. Contestants must engage with the prescribed books, they have to study them, they have to know the smaller details of the story, spotting the things that only the author would usually notice. They have to live within the novels, not just consume them. Contact:Mrs Jessica Lane & Mrs Wilma Coleman When:The competition is held at the end of Term 2. The team meets weekly in the lead up to the competition.


Course: The Science Faculty and Careers team have created a Science Club open to students from Years 9-13. The aim is to encourage students to continue with science and to show them the diverse range of career opportunities available in science. Students will have the opportunity to attend trips out of school, do hands on experiments, share science news and ideas and enter science competitions. We have guest speakers talk about a range of topics, including colour blindness and Bryde's Whales in the Hauraki. Students also took part in the hands on molecular biology day at Massey University. There are opportunities to attend lectures from international speakers as well as do lunchtime experiments with Science staff members. Contact:Mr James Reynolds When:Activities vary


Course: The New Zealand Spelling Bee is a national contest for Year 9 and 10 students. If you're good with words, and enjoy a challenge, then the spelling bee is for you! A 100 word list is given out in April of each year, the test takes place in June. The results are graded nationally and the top 200 spellers in New Zealand advance to the Regional semi-finals. Eight spellers move forward from the Auckland semi-final, and you're in the National Final! Last year these were televised, and the winner received $5000. Contact:Ms Janelle Byers When:Friday interval at O10


Course: This is an exciting new space for anyone who wants to share their writing, reading and their art. We share our work through the Words notebook where there are sections dedicated to what we have read, what we write and what we create visually. This notebook belongs to us and it is a secure place to share what we are working on. This åÕåÓclub' is open to all students and teachers. We plan on meeting twice a term, but the real discovery and åÕåÓmeeting' will be in our Notebook. Hopefully, it will reflect the incredible creativity that is quietly (and not so quietly!) going on all around us. For more information, email (or talk to) Mrs le Roux in English. Contact:Mrs Karen le Roux When:Twice a term
