Rosmini College’s Japanese Promotional Night was held on Thursday, 18th August in the Tindall Auditorium. This very successful evening event featured a fantastic Taiko performance, a Yosakoi dance, a Trivia Quiz, a Rosmini College Old Boy Guest Speaker and yummy Japanese food.
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.
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 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.
