Tereora College student leaders’ investiture was held last Friday at the Princess Anne Hall with limited attendance in line with the present Covid-19 Te Marae Ora regulations.

Tereora College head girl Sarah Napa is confident that working together, the leaders will be able to overcome the challenges.

“Although it’s a thrilling experience, it will not be an easy task,” said Napa.

“Our objective for 2022 is to inspire and pave the way for future leaders of Tereora College, to provide encouragement and discipline whilst embracing our core motto ‘Excellence in Citizenship’.

“We will aspire to accomplish individual and shared goals with our students and teachers, and to obtain the highest marks possible which is ‘Excellence’.”

Napa said the student leaders will strive to uphold the school’s core values of “respect, pride and excellence”, and with their collective knowledge and capabilities, positive change and ongoing success can be achieved.

“We aim to not be an echo… but a voice with powerful actions,” said Napa.
