2018 Student Leaders

Harper Bilby Daisy Green Hugo Madill
Rebecca McLaren Tessa McLaren Henry Davis
Amy Cran Sofia Roberts Zenith Harduar
Aislinn Prest Amelia Dunbar Lucy Connolly
Cooper Duff Jordan Heron

These are the names of St Heliers School’s 2018 Student Leaders. In Week 7, Term 1, eleven Year
8 students were named Student Leaders, and later on, in Term 2, three more were added. To be
a Student Leader is a privilege and a great honour, so all fourteen of them were very happy to be
chosen. The Student Leaders help teachers by doing duty at morning tea when they have a special
event and can’t do it. At Excellence and Citizenship Assemblies, they get to sit on the chairs at the
front and welcome parents and guests into the hall. If the teachers need someone to do a serious job
for them, the Student Leaders are always available. The Student Leaders helped with the Science
Roadshow in Term 2, and in Term 1 went to National Young Leaders Day where they listened to
inspiring speakers.

“It’s a privilege to be a Student Leader and I will remember this honour in the years to come,”
said one of the Student Leaders, knowing that all the other Student Leaders agree.

Events during 2018
our year 8 students

Ballroom Dancing

- By Maja Alexander
This term, during Monday morning sport, we had Johnny Williams, formerly of ‘Dancing With The Stars’,
show us the moves to the Jive and Cha Cha. We had lots of fun and learned a huge amount about
ballroom dancing. After weeks of practicing, the competition was coming up. Johnny taught the Year
7s & 8s how to walk on and off the dance floor. The Dance Competition was an enjoyable experience
for all of us, as we were able to get a feeling of what it would be like to compete worldwide. We all did
a fantastic job and competed to an exceptional standard. Johnny commented that St Heliers was the
best school that he had ever worked with.

Year 7 & 8 Speech Competition

- By Mimi Dunbar
This year, the whole team spent time in class writing a speech. We were allowed to choose our own
topic and type of speech. After we had practiced and finished writing the speeches, we presented them
in class and choose our top two. On Friday Week 6, Year 7 and 8 had their annual speech competition.
The winner of the Prepared was Zenith Yr 8 with ‘Pet Peeves’, and the winner of the Impromptu was
Will Yr 7 with ‘If I Could Invent School’. All competitors did very well.

Mathex

- By Mimi Dunbar

In Term 2 & 3, 8 Year Eight students spent their lunchtimes practicing and preparing for the Mathex
competition. Mathex is where multiple schools have teams of four competing. In the team of four, one is
always selected to be a runner. On the day, there were rows of tables for each team, and a marker for each
row sat at the front. Teams were given twenty questions worth 5 points each, one at a time. You were able
to pass only one question and had to answer as many as you could in thirty minutes. St Heliers School sent
two teams from both year 7&8. They competed on in Week 5, Term 3. Unfortunately no teams placed, but
they all got an impressive score. Year 8 A Team: 95 points, Year 8 B Team- 75 points.

St Heliers School Show: The Arts Take Flight

- By Harper Bilby

Every second year in Term 3 at St Heliers School, the students come together to perform a spectacular
production. This performance showcases the talents of both students and teachers. Classes work
together to produce, practise and perfect an entertaining piece which would then be shown to the St
Heliers community. To make these ideas a reality, teachers have volunteered to help with LEPs for kids
to complete work for the show; a script writing LEP to write the script for the show, a drama LEP for
the intervals between each fantastic act. Tayla Fredrickson, who was working with her fellow students
in the drama LEP said, “ I really like being a part of the show and seeing it all come together, I was so
excited for the big performance!” For the production this year the theme was ‘The Arts Take Flight’, and
the show was themed around travel. St Heliers School has kids eager to help make it all come together,
whether it’s creating props or working on lighting and sound, everyone has a role. Each year group chose
a particular country to base their act around, so the audience was taken around the world, learning about
each country’s culture through performing arts. Cara Collins said, “I like getting to show my artsy side. I
really enjoyed learning the stomp and practising the cha cha”.

Red Cross Walk

- By Tessa McLaren May

In Term 1, all the classes in Year 8 read
the story Refugee, which was about
three different kids in different countries
and different time zones. These children
face an army of obstacles during their
journey as refugees. Mirza and Asma,
two refugees with three children, fled
Pakistan and made their way to New
Zealand. The Year 7s & 8s watched
videos about their journey, and decided
to help the Red Cross by walking to
Okahu Bay and back, raising $2297!

Our school won $1000 to spend at Kathmandu, which was used for sports equipment. The walk was
something St Heliers doesn’t do every day, so all the students were excited. They enjoyed the walk, and
the fact they were helping The Red Cross help many other families, such as Mirza’s and Asma’s.

Writers Festival

- By Zoe Paterson
In Term 2, we were lucky enough to go to the Auckland Writers Festival. This was held in the Town Hall,
and it gave us a chance to hear our favourite writers speak. Throughout the day, we had four writers
speak to us. The first writer was Amy Sarig King. She was a very inspirational speaker, and she talked
about why she liked to write. The next speaker was Chris Riddell. He spoke and drew about how he
became a writer, and why it was special to him. There were two other speakers, Rewa Worley and Stacy
Greg, who spoke about their individual experiences and writing inspirations. Some lucky students were
also fortunate enough to attend workshops with the writers. These writers taught us lots of tricks, and
we will use this knowledge for the rest of our lives. It was a great experience!

Year 8 Camp Adair

- By Will Schwartfeger
This year, camp was a blast! From Super Fox to the Pamper Pole, every Year 8 student had an amazing
time. All Year 8s at Camp Adair, were there to either achieve tasks that they were scared or not willing
to do, or to enjoy the time encouraging friends. The best part of camp was the camp fire night, when
everyone gathered around a massive campfire and told jokes to receive a marshmallow to roast. Once
everyone had roasted a marshmallow, we played a huge game of Spotlight. Everyone was excited and
really enjoyed playing.

Term 3 Inquiry: Are We There Yet?

- By Cara Collins
In Term 3, Year 7 and 8 have been
studying ‘Are We There Yet?’, which is
a Auckland Museum exhibition about
women rights. The exhibition showed
us many things about our society, and
how women still don’t get paid as much
as men. We were tasked to interview a
woman in our community about what
life was like as a kid and what she would
tell her sixteen year old self. We were
given many amazing answers. So are
we there yet? It’s making us think about
whether we are there yet in regard to
women’s rights. It was an inspiring and
fascinating experience.

Waterwise

- By Mr Nevalagi
Year 8 have made great use of the spring and summer months this year, enjoying a sun-soaked day
on the water at Okahu Bay. Students learned and applied the essential skills needed to sail and rig an
optimist. There’s a lot of fun and challenge when you try to catch the wind in your sail amongst the
unpredictable currents of the bay. At this stage, I don’t think we’ve had any capsizes (yet!).
Those students waiting their turn to sail got a chance to rest and enjoy lunch with a view of the
Waitemata Harbour and Rangitoto in the distance, or were on the water in single-person kayaks. Tasks
on the kayaks included seeing who could paddle all the way to the other side of the bay to greet Kelly
Tarlton’s patrons before realising how hard it would be to paddle back. Special thanks to the parent
helpers who assisted with supervision at every session and our dedicated SHS Waterwise Instructors.

Year 7 & 8 SHS House Competition: Nga Tae O Te Whare

This year our school trialled a house system for the year 7s & 8s. The houses are: Kikorangi, Kakariki, Whero
and Kowhai, the Maori names for Blue, Green, Red and Yellow. We collect points for the houses through our
Thursday sports and class points, where the teacher gives us points for good things we do. The house that
gets 8 points, second gets 6 points, third gets 4 points and fourth gets 2 points. People also get points for
winning sports events individually and with teams. These points are transferred onto a google doc which
adds together the points from each class. So far the system has been successful and the house points are
working well.

AIMS Games

In Term 3, 32 Year 7 and 8 students went to Tauranga
to play in the Anchor AIMS Games. We had 3 teams
and 4 individuals competing. The boys’ basketball
team placed 70th. The futsal placed 17th equal with
Aquinas College, Elim Christian College, Mt Maunganui
Intermediate. The mixed water polo team placed 8th.
Zoe, in Year 8, placed 3rd in the yachting championship,
being the only student to place. “AIMS was lots of fun
and responsibility. We had a lot of difficult games. I
like how you had to live with your friends for a week.”
(A quote from Jordan Heron, Futsal). “It was a great
experience being able to stay with my friends and

Gymnastics

This term for gymnastics, we had two competitions. We started training in Term 1 and after one
practice at the Eastern Suburbs ESGC, we had our first competition. We had to do beam, floor, and
vault, which we all did very well. All of us then kept up our practice to go on to the Auckland Champs
as we had all placed well in the first competition. In the second competition, we had to do our same
routines. Because we had been practicing, we did very well. Unfortunately, we did not place, but

school has placed many times in netball

which we were not taught how to use. After completing
the course, we were given a time, and told to wait. We

waiting, we were tormented by not being able to play

Memorable Moments

Cian did it

Every time somebody did something like poke somebody, everybody would say Cian did it. It became a big joke in our
class!

Zeenith is ‘Literally’ amazing

In his speech, Zenith said that he hated having his name spelt as Zeenith. He also hated people using the word literally
in the wrong context. This led to the whole class calling him Zeenith, and us always using the word Literally.

Knights of the Round Table

Room 14 has a round table where a group of people of sit. Normally Sofia, Tayla, Aislinn, Zenith, Tyler, Matthew, and
Isabella sit there. They are always way too loud, and Mrs Herbert always has to tell them to shush. They get called the
knights of the round table.

Sofat

We were doing ship names on the bus on the way somewhere. Sofia and Matt got given the ship name Sofat, and that
became a massive joke in our class.

Too Short!

Lots of people in the class couldn’t reach their license pictures, especially when Tyler moved them up way too high.

Colden Vs Teacher

Colden would constantly challenge what the teacher said, and he would almost always be right. This was hilarious for
the rest of the class.

Now Kiss

Zifan would constantly push two random people together, regardless of gender, and say, ’Now Kiss’.

OUR INCREDIBLE WORK!!

23

Room 15

Walking in on the first day, all of us had our worries: “What if I’m not
smart enough?” “What if I can’t make friends?” Those were the questions
that burned inside everyone’s heads, but those were the questions that
were quickly forgotten once the year got into swing.
Camp was a binding moment for all of us. The days of the “Cold War
Foodfight” seem like they were only yesterday, as do the mudslide, and
all the high rope activities.
Aquapass and WaterWise enabled us to learn to work as a team,
especially during Term 4, when we managed to get kayaks working as tug
boats for the Optimist sailboats. Year 8 is full of competitions between
classes, and I think it’s safe to say Room 15 is by far the best, especially
at the fitness trail, athletics, and the swimming sports pizza competition
(which we may not have won, but that’s not important). Not to mention,
Room 15 is the best at getting people onto their Full License fast (for all
enquiries call 0800 15= LICENSE FAST).
On the topic of competition, the Room 14/15 rivalry may be present, but
there is really no competition — we’re far better at literally everything
else. Room 15 is obviously the best class!

Room 15 - A Day In The Life

What does it mean to be a Year 8?
2018 has been an incredible year, filled with many wonderful
memories and laughs. We have grown to know each other better,
and have opened up to our classmates. There have been many
things that are constant recurrences in Room 15, like the hour-
long arguments that we have about our agree disagree and math
answers - no one in Room 15 is ever wrong.

There seems to be a theme of creating chaos at Tech, sewing is
no exception. It has become a trend to place a needle between
your fingers and ask for a fistbump from one of your fellow
classmates. Normally it doesn’t work, as the needle isn’t
properly concealed. However, Maja was not so lucky, and still
has a scar to this day. Maybe Hugo should apologise.

We can successfully explain our time away,
persuade why free time is better than
homework, narrate our way through avoiding
a task, and conclude the day with silent ball.

Maths: Why learn Algebra? Finding X is only Most of the stuff that goes on Mrs Ward knows about, but
useful if you’re a pirate. there are a few little things that we Room 15’ers have decided
to keep to ourselves. I bet that if Mrs Ward searched through
all of our laptops, she would find a treasure trove of priceless
photos. We all like to take a break from our learning and have
a quick photo shoot.

2018 Room 19

Class Summary

Room 19 is an awesome class that shows great sportsmanship and made SHS a
fun place to be. We are super humble and amazing at Year 8 sports competitions,
especially dodgeball. The class sometimes strays off task but we can be relied
on to try our best when supporting each other and those around the school.

‘Evil eyes’ stare down from the display walls upon the students in Room 19.
This is just one of the many remnants left from our study about the effects of a
guilty conscience on the human mind - thank you, Edgar Allan Poe.

These eyes prevented the gamers in the class from running off to play Fortnite.
However, their persistent love for the game was too much for the teachers.
They caved in to the Tilted Tower enthusiasts by managing to get ALL of Year
8 to ‘write about Fortnite without mentioning Fortnite.

If you have never seen us in class, that is probably because we are running around
the field (thanks, Mr Nevalagi!). It may also be because we are at Selwyn College
studying Technology or at Auckland Museum studying the fight for women’s
rights and equality under the banner, “Are We There Yet?”.

Room 19 reached new heights of hilarity when it came to the best dad jokes.
We’re great at telling jokes, although some got slightly dark at times. Special
mention to Kourosh for his great rhyming skills and Eloise for her talented
drawings in class. We had some amazing water polo players in our class such
as Ivan, Henry, Ivan, Cara and Ivan.

Come into our class and marvel at the masterpieces that are the desktop
computer wallpapers. Thank you to Jackson for working so hard to make the
photos look so skux. We now shall stand for our Room 19 anthem, “I like cookies,
cupcakes and cucumbers”.

This year in Room 19 we have had many Dad Joke
competitions. It includes two classmates going head to head
trying to make the other laugh. Pretty much none of the
jokes were actually funny.

In Room Nineteen this year we started literacy circles. We
chose groups in which we read one of the books such as
‘A Monster Calls’, ‘Inside The Game’, ‘Holes’, ‘Virals’ and
‘Phoenix Files’.

Running around the field has become a class activity that we
all know. We have become pros at this class time activity,
which allows us to vent our energy and feelings outside.
