When you get to year 13 you realise how quickly time has flown and there is no going back so have no regrets . Matiutaera aims to help push younger students to give everything a go and will make the most of all opportunities presented to him. Monita hopes to make a positive change in someone s life through her mentoring work. She would also love to lead Kauri House to success in the annual inter-house compe- tition. Makatu u wants to encourage as many students as possible to par- ticipate in school activities. Her advice to students: Never let fear get you down or keep you from win- ning a race and Set goals beyond your limits . The selection panel was a mix of year 13 students and staff who interviewed the candidates, taking into account their contribution to our school in previous years. Never an easy decision but it is a robust process, principal Alan Forgie says.
