Japanese Student Exchange
We’re excited to be hosting Mr Ushida (Principal) and a number of students from Seto Junior High School, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. The staff and students will be spending their time at Waikowhai Intermediate and ANI throughout the duration of their visit (1 August – 8 August). We will be holding a powhiri in the hall on Monday to welcome our new friends.
On Thursday 26th June, our TravelWai's councillors attended the TravelWise Awards Ceremony at Eden Park from 4 - 7pm.
Waikowhai Intermediate School was awarded with a prestigious GOLD AWARD again showing that we are maintaining a very high standard of student awareness about keeping safe when in and around the roads near our school.
We would like to thank parents and whanau for your continued support to ensure that our students are cycling, scootering, walking or bussing to school rather than being picked up by private vehicles rain, hail or shine. This saves a great deal of chaos at the school gates.
Have a safe and TravelWise day.
3D Printing at WAI
On Thursday 12th of June, Mr Peng (criticalpixelsdesign.com) came to Waikowhai Intermediate to talk to the Year 8 classes about 3D printing for their Social Sciences unit. Students were able to experience first-hand and witness 3D printers live in action. There was also an opportunity for students to ask questions regarding 3D printing and his journey so far into his exploration.
Central Zone Rugby Champions
Congratulations to the Under 55kg Rugby team for winning the Central Zone Rugby tournament.
