Villa Education Trust: South Auckland Middle School

The Villa Education Trust is delighted to announce the appointment of Bryce Anderson as the Community Liaison Manager for South Auckland Middle School being established to begin at the start of the 2014 school year.

For the past two years Mr Anderson has been the Team Manager for the Blues rugby team in the Super 15 competition.

In announcing the shift Auckland Rugby CEO Andy Dalton stated:

“It is a new and exciting role – based in South Auckland – and focuses on the development and welfare of the school and the kids in this low-socio economic area.

The role also requires the integration of the local community into the school – which includes Auckland Rugby and the local clubs.

This is an area Bryce was keen to move into so it's all very exciting for him”

His role with South Auckland Middle School is to build relationships between the school and the families as well as developing links into the local community. Not only will he be ensuring the day to day welfare and family involvement of the children while at South Auckland Middle School but he will also track and support them through their Year 11 – 13 schools where they will be seeking their NCEA qualifications.

South Auckland Middle School will begin in 2014 with a maximum role of 120. Class sizes will be limited to 15. The school will have an academic focus with core subjects being Maths, English, Science, Technology and Social Studies taught by highly qualified teachers. The students will also have independent study time each morning where they will complete cross curricular projects. In the afternoon there is a programme involving Music, Art and Sports.

One aspect of Mr Anderson’s position is to develop the relationship between the school and the highly supportive Auckland Rugby organisation who will be working with the school to provide fitness, skills and rugby coaching. The school will be aiming for students to make outstanding progress not only as academics but also in the activity based afternoon opportunities.

Enrolment at the school is open to all students of Years 7 – 10 and is not zoned. Tuition will be entirely free and no school donation will be asked. Uniform and stationery will also be supplied with ample state of the art Information Technology on site.

Werewolf: Katniss Joins The News Team

From the outset, the Hunger Games series has dwelt obsessively on the ways that media images infiltrate our public and personal lives... From that grim starting point, Mockingjay Part One takes the process a few stages further. There is very little of the film that does not involve the characters (a) being on screens (b) making propaganda footage to be screened and (c) reacting to what other characters have been doing on screens.
