Time again for the school to present out termly Arohanui award which, as you may recall, celebrates the fact that many of our students do quite remarkable things in our community and beyond, simply because they see a need and they know they can make a difference in someone else’s world. Often they do these things quietly behind the scenes, for no reward or recognition, but in doing so, they demonstrate the meaning of Arohanui and show ‘much love, with deep affection’ for their fellow human beings.
At the end of last term, we presented two students our special ‘Arohanui Cross’ and gift: Joseva Talemaicakauedrove (Jay) and Kate Perkins. Jay was presented the Arohanui award for the amazing way he supported students during Sports Day, and Kate, for the incredible way she raised money to buy stationary for children in Fiji and then took it to them – all quietly in the background and off her own bat. Well done Kate and Jay.
If you know of any students who quietly have done things behind the scenes to help others in need, for no reward to themselves, please contact the school with details. Anyone can nominate someone, students, parents, or members of the community. We’d love to hear about it.
