Kereama and Ryniker Cup for Merit and Tolley Memorial Prize and OPA Badge and Life Membership of the OPA Joint Award: Kristi Atkins and Waitapu Potaka Kristi Atkins Kristi was school president in 2011 and consistently led by example. As president she has proven her- self to be hardworking, reliable and focussed. Regardless of the activity she is involved in she follows through on what she says she will do. Kristi has contributed to the smooth running of the school and has been an active member of our values committee. She mentored other students, was the student representative on the board of trustees and a member of the ball committee. Kristi has also been involved in the performing arts. She has been involved in major production and the one act play. Kristi has found time to compete in a number of sports including vol- leyball and netball. She was captain of the volleyball team and a Manawatu representa- tive netball player. Kristi has been able to complete all these tasks and duties while maintaining an excellent academic record. Waitapu Potaka Waitapu has been house captain for Oroua House in 2011 leading with confidence and efficiency. These skills were also evident at this year's EVENTO show where Waitapu acted as MC. Those involved with the show commented on how her conduct and performance was exemplary. She has also been involved with the school band and show choir. Waitapu has been involved in Maori performing arts as a member of the school's kapa haka group since she began here as a year 9 student. The quality of the leadership she exhibits is evident in the respect that the group members have for her. She leads by example and is able to take advice and then demonstrate the quality of reo and performance that is required through her own work. Waitapu took on the pos- ition of tutor for the group, including composing waiata and choreographing their performances, and was willing to give up performing to con- centrate solely on tutoring. In addition to all of this she has played touch for the school, and maintained an excellent academic record, including excellence in all her te reo assessments.
