Head Students 2019

Katrina Amituanai

This year my choice of subjects is Sport Science, Geography, History, English and Mathematics with Statistics. I have done well in the last two years of NCEA achieving both Level 1 and 2 Endorsed with Excellence. I have a passion for sport and through this I have been involved with various sports through Te Awamutu College. This includes: Volleyball, Netball, Basketball, Touch and Athletics. However, this year I have taken a step back as I am injured and now have put my focus into coaching.
My goals this year are to achieve Level 3 Endorsed with Excellence and to communicate and create new relationships more confidently and comfortably. When I leave school, I plan to attend Waikato University, hopefully helped by a scholarship. Although, I am unsure of what I want to study there yet.

This year the subjects I am taking are English, Calculus, Physics, Chemistry and Economics. I’ve achieved to quite a high level over the past few years, endorsing both NCEA Level 1 and 2 with Excellence, as well as representing both Waikato and New Zealand playing Lacrosse. My goals for this year are to fulfil my role as Head Student to the best of my ability, whilst improving my public speaking ability. I also hope to endorse Level 3 with Excellence and continue to play lacrosse at a high level of representation. My interests include lacrosse, equestrian, snow skiing and water skiing. Next year I am planning on studying Engineering at the University of Canterbury, or Health Sciences at the University of Otago.

Te Kapamanawakii Crown

The subjects I am studying this year are Mathematics with Calculus, Physics, Biology, Sports Science and Sport Elite. I am equally passionate in both sporting and academic achievements, but my primary sport is rugby. I have had the honour to be one of the 1st XV co-captains last year and I have been lucky enough to retain the co-captaincy of the 1st XV again this year. To top off a great year, last year I also made the Tainui Waka Under 17s, the Waikato Under 16s and the Chiefs Under 17 Development squad. I am honoured to be one of the Head Students and look forward to the year ahead. Goals for me this year are to firstly, fulfill my role as Head Student to a high standard and captain the 1st XV to a successful season. Individually my goals are to further my achievements at representative level in rugby and to pass NCEA Level 3 with majority of my subjects endorsed with Merit. My future plans are to make the most of the opportunities presented to me and set myself up for a well-rounded and fulfilling life in the future.
