Sol3 Mio Visit

Mangere College would like to thank Sol3 Mio for talking to and performing for a number of students today. Sol3 Mio has spoken about their careers and how they came to be the prominent singers they are today. It was an inspirational time for our students to see how other Polynesians can reach success at the highest level.

We wish them all the best in future and hope at another time they can again impart their wisdom to our young people.

Kristin School Exchange

The Kristin School and Mangere College Music Exchange was a great success with selected music students from both schools participating. They worked hard together, and enjoyed the process of rehearsing, learning new music together and within two hours presented a special performance in the Auditorium.

This is the second year of the exchange which has seen new friendships continue to develop. The students found inspiration in each other’s talents and shared new approaches to performance practice which was fantastic to see.  Mr Opeloge Ah Sam (Kristin College), Ms Faavagaga (Mangere College).

The students involved were: Sam Wilson, Lydwina Afele, Tearataua Tavioni, Criss Papau, Mary A Va’afai, Mele Ahoia Palenapa and Nathan Ashin.
