Two guests from the Japanese consulate in Auckland visited Rosmini College recently and talked to the Year 9 Japanese students about popular Japanese food and the country’s culture.
Rosmini College’s Head Boy, Matthew Kereama (18) of Milford has just returned from performing at the Globe in London. Matthew was part of the cast performing Shakespeare’s ‘The Taming of the Shrew’. Matthew played Gremio. The Kereama family accompanied Matthew to London and were able to see him perform. Matthew was also able to see productions of Macbeth and Midsummer Night’s Dream being performed at the Globe. Other highlights included lunch with the New Zealand High Commissioner, Sir Lockwood Smith, and visiting Shakespeare’s birthplace at Stratford Upon Avon. Matthew’s trip was made possible through the generous support of family, friends and, in particular, Fuji Xerox.
Congratulations to all the members of the Rosmini College Senior Choir who participated in the Big Sing Competition held on Thursday, 16th June at the Auckland Town Hall. This was the first time Rosmini College has entered a choir in the Big Sing for over a decade. Rosmini’s Head of Music, Doctor Ju Wang says all the extra rehearsals the students did really paid off as “there were not many male choirs in the competition this year and our students sang really well.” Doctor Wang also wishes to thank Mr Robert Howell who is the Rosmini College Senior Choir Director and Rosmini College Old Boy, Momo Miura who accompanied the Choir on piano.
Rosmini College entered two teams in the Japanese Trivia Championships held at AUT’s City campus on Friday, 17th June. The first team was made up of Year 9 Japanese students Benjamin Drury, Caesar Li and Carlos Urbino and the second team was made up of Year 10 Japanese students Adam Slijp, Marcus Brown and Jerome Wijesurendere.
