HEAD BOY: Dean Crene

Hello, my name is Dean Créne. This is my sixth year at Tikipunga High School. Throughout my time at this school I have come to realise that a large school is not always better as a smaller school like Tikipunga High School gives more opportunities to the students. Here, the teachers are able to cater for every student’s individual needs. My aim for the school during this year is to work with the other head students to make 2016 a great year. We hope to improve our reputation and our image within the rest of Whangarei area to match what we really are as a school. This year my personal goal is to achieve NCEA level 3 with excellence endorsement, after which I would like to join the Air Force as a pilot for my future career.


HEAD GIRL: Charlie-May Clarke

Ko te manu e kai ana i te miro, nona te ngahere
Ko te manu e kai ana i te matauranga, nona te Ao.
Taniwharau Waikato, he piko he taniwha, he piko he taniwha.
Ngati HIne pukepuke rau.

Tena koutou katoa, he mihi nui he mihi aroha ano hoki tenei ki a tatou katoa i runga i nga ahuatanga o te wa, tena koutou, tena koutou, tena tatou katoa. Harikoa ana te ngakau ki te tu hei tino tauira mo nga kohine, ara mo te haikura o Tikipunga hoki hei te tau e heke mai nei, heoi ano, ko te tumanako ka tutukingia nga wawata e wawatangia ana.

Ko Charlie-May Clarke toku ingoa. Ko Robert raua ko May oku matua, ko Monet-Mei raua ko Myra-Mei toku tuahine, ko Hapurona raua ko Horatio aku tungane.

Kia ora my name is Charlie-May Clarke and I am head girl of 2016.I have been attending Tikipunga High School since I was a year 8.I enjoy playing volleyball as it’s such a big sport here at our school, and I can speak Te Reo Maori. When I have completed school I would like to go to Massey University to become a veterinarian , or if that doesn’t work out I would like to pursue something in the animal industry.

Tikipunga High School is a great school because it’s a very family orientated school, the teachers are extremely supportive and would do anything for the student.  At Tikipung High school you arent just a number, everybody knows everyone . I hope to be the best head girl I can be and a good role model for generations to come. This year I hope to make a difference and yes i do have a few ideas up my sleeve. But I mainly want to make sure that the younger students are going to be as successful as they can be.

If you do or don’t know, there will be 8 deputy head students this year. We have a really great and successful group of student leaders and I know we’ll all give it our all to do the best we can for our school.

Lastly I would like to thank everybody for this amazing opportunity, and I am extremely excited to represent Tikipunga High School as the head girl of 2016.
