Ruben Wiki visits Verdon

Ruben Wiki and Dr Kannan

On Friday 20 May year 11 students were lucky enough to receive a visit from Ruben Wiki. Ruben talked about his life and all the lessons he had learnt along the way. His main message was about goal setting whether they were big or small and making sure you achieve them. he also showed some video clips of his rugby league career and a rather hilarious clip of the Kiwi Rugby League visit to Buckingham Palace.

Shave for Cure

Mr Smith being shaved by student Jeffrey Butt.

On Wednesday 25 May Verdon College took part in Shave for Cure. Sultans of Verdon, James Shirley, John Smith and Patrick Canny presented themselves on stage at lunchtime. In front of a large engaged audience students paid to shave the golden locks from the men. Daniel McIntosh managed to keep his head of hair with a donation large enough to stop the shave.

A big thank you to students and staff who supported this initiative. A total of $1,500.00 was raised for cancer.

The College would like to acknowledge the generous support of Ascot Snips who supplied us with all the necessary equipment to carry out this task.

From Tuesday 7 June the College canteen will be under new management. The new management will be focusing on providng a wide range of food selections at the most cost effective price possible. The new managment will also mean that the College will share in any profits made by the canteen.

We look forward to your continued support.
