Rosmini College Old Boy, Samuel Mayhew (2000 – 2006), wants to become New Zealand’s best Ocean Ski paddler.

Consequently, Sam needs to complete a minimum of four races of the series around the globe this year. Sam grew up on the North Shore and he is a lifeguard at the Mairangi Bay Surf Life Saving Club. He proudly describes himself as a “Rosmini Old Boy for Life.”

Rosmini recently took three teams of boys to the North Shore Squash Zone Day.  All three teams entered the Intermediate Boys division and all three got off to a great start winning the first two rounds.   Team 2 was then knocked out in the play-off rounds but Team 1 and 3 continued their winning streak to play each other in the semi-final.   Team 1 won the semi 3-0 to make it through to the final where they were narrowly beaten 1-2 by a very slick Orewa College team of regular squash players.   Team 3 beat Northcote Intermediate in the play-off for 3rd and 4th spot.

Rosmini College’s Year 9 and 10 students have recently had a team of AFL New Zealand coaches attend their Physical Education classes and teach them about Australian Rules Football as a sport. Rosmini’s HOD of P.E, Mr Paul Fordham says, “The quality of these sessions has been exceptionally high and the basic skills of Rosmini College students are most definitely progressing.” Consequently, Paul hopes that talent identification will also be part of this process and that there will be a Rosmini Hawkes Cup team who will compete against other Auckland schools. He concludes that the AFL sessions have been, “a fantastic, informative and enjoyable unit of work for the Rosmini College PE Department!”

Congratulations to a group of our Year 10 boys who have recently completed their bronze Hillary award, otherwise known as the Duke of Edinburgh.  This is a notable award that requires six months continuous commitment to performing and recording a notable “sport, skill and service”.  It also requires planning for and completing a number of ‘adventurous journeys’ where they develop and test out their survival skills!

Caleb Antonio-Rooney year 12 student has just about completed a season of racing in his new race car, a F2 Midget (200 horsepower).

Caleb gained a dispensation from Speedway New Zealand last year being only 15 at the start of the season to race in this adult class .  He has done very well with finishing 9th (there was only 1 point between 7th, 8th and 9th) on the table out of 21 drivers at Western Springs Speedway for the season (even  after having a few missed points due to not completing the feature races as a result of electrical  issues).
