On Tuesday 16th of August 2009 The Deputy Principle of Tamaki College Mr Dunn came to our school to recruit some new students to Tamaki College next year.
First he took us through the school brochure. The information looked pretty interesting and motivating. There was also a pamphlet about applying for a Yr 9 Scholarship. The reward is that you can get a laptop and your own printer! Wow! Wait, there’s more. You can also get internet access! Awesome!!
After that he talked about the School Safety Charter. This explained the rules and the consequences. To me, Tamaki College is a secure environment to learn and a safe college to be at.
Students then asked questions. Miss Waetford asked the DP what happens if you’re late. He said that if you miss your tutor class then you might have a detention the school will send a letter of concern to your parents. Better get to bed early and be on time guys!
Well I just can’t wait to go to Tamaki College. The Scholarship looks really attractive. Tamaki College seems like a school that will provide me with heaps of opportunities to excel.
