Pupils celebrate world literacy day

Monday September 11, 2017

Schools across the island marked World Literacy Day last week by colouring their hair, dressing up brightly and parading their favourite book characters.

For the fourth year running Apii Te Uki Ou is holding its popular “Win a Trip to Raro” fundraiser.

Students at Nukutere, Titikaveka and Tereora Colleges are taking part in a Healthy Lifestyles programme being taught at secondary schools, and the results will be used to track their future health.

Students from Titikaveka College returned to Rarotonga last week after a two-week visit to Whangarei in northern New Zealand.

Tereora College is running an NCEA (National Certificate of Educational Achievement) information evening on Tuesday from 5-6pm.

The Ministry of Education began its three-day annual conference yesterday for principals of schools in Rarotonga and the Pa Enua.

On Thursday this week, Year 5 students of Apii Takitumu received a visit from the Ministry of Internal Affairs consultant Elizabeth Wright-Koteka.

Eight student leaders and 16 school councillors have decided they will make a difference to their school, Tereora College, this year.

Two Cook Islands students, one from Aitutaki and one from Rarotonga have been selected to represent the Cook Islands at the Sir Peter Blake Youth EnviroLeader Forum (YELF) in New Zealand later this month.
