Congratulations Opal-Jae Herbert, Tarawera High School's 2021 POET Award Winner.

Opal-Jae showed real leadership skills during our year 9 camp. She built strong relationships not only with her peers but also went out of her way to build these relationships with our year 9 cohort. She was a great example of being Tuakana to our Teina.

Congratulations Hamish Gillies, Melville High School's 2021 POET Award Winner.

This year Hamish has attended two POET camps at Melville High School - the Year 13 Camp with his year group, and the Year 9 Camp as a Student Leader. Whilst on these camps, and in the preparation period leading up to these camps, Hamish truly stood out for a range of reasons including his enthusiasm, helpfulness, ability to relate to younger students and support with water activities. Through attending POET camps Hamish has demonstrated his passion for Outdoor Education and activities, and his capability as a leader in these situations and therefore he is the most deserving candidate for this award from Melville High School for 2021.
