Auckland Summer Shakespeare Workshop - the play ‘As You Like It’

Our Year 12 and 13 students had the opportunity to work with Francesca Savige a professional actress who played Rosalind in the Auckland University’s season of ‘As You Like it’.

The students were immersed in a moved synopsis of the play, taking on characters and speaking dialogue from the play. This experience enabled our students to engage in a deeper understanding of character’s perspectives and the historical context of the Elizabethan era.

Noting kids in poor villages didn't have books, she returned to NZ and launched the Motorbike Book Club, which delivers bilingual books to keen young readers.

Dear Parents and Caregivers

Thank you to all parents and students for the kind wishes that Mrs Coles has received over the past week. As you can imagine, this is going to be a long road for the Coles’ family. Mr Chris Lee, a very experienced Maths teacher, will be teaching Mrs Coles classes in her absence.

Leighton’s funeral will be at Harbourside Church (48 Esmonde Rd, Takapuna) at 2pm on Wednesday, 1 March.

Transport will be available for Senior Students who wish to attend the funeral. Please reply to:
before 9am Wednesday if you want to book a seat for your student.
The bus will depart from Longmore Lane (normal bus bay) at 1pm Wednesday and return by 5:30pm.

To allow Senior School staff and some students to attend the funeral, the Senior School will be closed for instruction from 1pm on Wednesday. Senior students are free to leave the site by the end of lunch or go to the library where supervision will be available until the close of the school day. No Senior School students should linger on the school site after lunch. Please note that it is the responsibility of parents to arrange transport to the funeral.

Thank you for your cooperation during this difficult time.

Regards
Graeme Budler
(Executive Principal)
