Franklin County News - - OUT & ABOUT -

Name: Cameron La­mont Age: 17 School: Waiuku Col­lege De­scribe how you achieved the hon­our of be­ing named head stu­dent: I made the most of all the op­por­tu­ni­ties the school gave me and used them to de­velop the skills I needed.

Goals for the year? To get into Massey Univer­sity for Cre­ative Me­dia Pro­duc­tion

High­light of your sec­ondary ed­u­ca­tion so far? I got to go on a World Chal­lenge Ex­pe­di­tion to Zam­bia and Botswana which gave me some awe­some life ex­pe­ri­ences and great peo­ple skills.

Favourite sub­ject and why? I re­ally en­joy my art sub­jects as they al­low me to be cre­ative and I get to use some amaz­ing tools and gad­gets to ex­press my art­work.

What do you like most about your school?

I think it’s re­ally awe­some how ev­ery­one in our school sticks up for one an­other and we have a re­ally awe­some com­mu­nity feel­ing within the school.

When you are not study­ing, what do you like to do?

I re­ally en­joy ori­en­teer­ing be­cause it has al­lowed me to see some of New Zealand’s amaz­ing scenery and also let me meet some amaz­ing and ded­i­cated peo­ple.

Who is the Kiwi you ad­mire most and why?

I very much ad­mire Brando Yelavich. He re­alised that his life was headed into the wrong di­rec­tion and used his pas­sion of the out­doors to help him­self turn his life around and help out others wher­ever he can.

If I was Auck­land/Waikato’s mayor I’d...

If I was the Mayor of Auck­land I would help de­velop fund­ing for youth pro­grammes based around the wider Auck­land area such as Hil­lary Out­doors and Spirit of Ad­ven­ture, as I be­lieve that th­ese kind of pro­grammes are im­por­tant for youth devel­op­ment in our com­mu­nity.
