Year 13 Personal Excellence Presentations
On the 11th of April we celebrated our Y13 students who have demonstrated strength in the following Key Competencies; Managing Self and Participating and Contributing.
According to the New Zealand Curriculum, the Key Competency of Managing Self recognises the need for young people to master strategies and methods to organise the myriad of tasks and challenges that come their way every day. Planning and having systems to manage their workload are keys to success.
The Key Competency of Participating and Contributing demonstrates the need for students to grow the skills required to be active citizens in our modern world.
The students that received the awards are reliable, resourceful and resilient. The are self motivated and have a “can-do” attitude. This mind set has enabled them to have strategies in place to ensure they meet the high standards they have set themselves.
These young adults are fine examples of global citizens who have a sense of purpose and confidence that will enable them to contribute successfully in our world. We would like to congratulate them on their exemplary attitude and commitment they have shown toward all aspect of their learning.
The guest speaker was Cassie Roma, a San Diego girl transplanted in Auckland. She has her feet firmly planted in two hemispheres and believes in the beauty of having roots as well as wings. She described herself as follows; “I’m a storytelling, public-speaking, social media + digital marketing OG with a penchant for data, creativity, strategy, & community advocacy.”
