Verse of The Day
“I a koutou mahi katoa kaua te amuamu, te tautohetohe; Kia kore ai koutou e whaikupuria, kia tapatahi ai, he tamariki kohakore na te Atua, i waenganui o te whakatupuranga tutu, parori ke, kei roto nei koutou i a ratou e tiaho ana hei rama i te ao; Kia mau pu ki te kupu o te ora; kia hari ai ahau a te ra o te Karaiti, kihai ahau i oma noa, kihai i mahi noa.” (Philippians 2:14-16)

Thursday, 21 April 2011 Mayoral Benefit Concert

This year's Mayoral Benefit Concert in Whangarei features a strong creative line-up of performers on Friday, May 6, at the Capitaine Bougainville Theatre  in Forum North.

The central feature performance will be a colourful devised drama piece by students of Ngunguru School who are the beneficiaries of the funds raised by the concert.

Five Ngunguru students have won a place at the Future Problem Solving Programme International (FPSPI) at La Crosse University, Winconsin, US.

For the concert, the students will move to a new level and articulate their work in music, drama and dance, calling on the rich environmental context of the Ngunguru Sandspit and the way it makes their school's history special.

They won their place for a project where they carried on the efforts of previous years' students and worked out how best to preserve the history of their school, which was in danger of being lost because of the deterioration of documents and artefacts and the loss of photographs.

The students exhaustively researched the history of the school and the Ngunguru area, and the results of their research and interviews with long-standing residents who shared their memories have already enriched the school and the community.
