Fo­cus on old-school val­ues HIGH SCHOOL SPORT

Te Puke Times - - NEWS - With BRETT JOHN­SON

The sports de­part­ment has re­ceived great feed­back from the teach­ers notic­ing a re­mark­able change in behaviour, en­gage­ment and pride.

Tony An­droos from Tony’s Ke­bab’s and Pizza ap­proached the school want­ing to sup­port the stu­dents. Tony’s be­came a ma­jor spon­sor pro­vid­ing player of the day vouch­ers for a free ke­bab to cel­e­brate the suc­cess of the youth.

“They are the next gen­er­a­tion. I want to recog­nise their achieve­ment and for them to know any­thing is pos­si­ble when you put your mind to it.”

The stu­dents love the vouch­ers, they are grow­ing teenagers get­ting food made from scratch. It is a win-win sce­nario and so good we can cel­e­brate the stu­dent’s achieve­ment. Just an­other ex­am­ple of this won­der­ful com­mu­nity step­ping up to help.

TPHS has had amaz­ing sup­port from other lo­cal busi­nesses giv­ing back to the school and pro­vid­ing warm-up t-shirts for the teams to build unity and pride, as well as as­sist­ing with tour­na­ment fees and equip­ment.

This sup­port has made a huge dif­fer­ence in build­ing a pos­i­tive culture within the school and this can­not be un­der­es­ti­mated.

The school would like to thank Te Puke Mitre 10, Te Puke New World, EastPack, Trevelyan’s, Tall Poppy Real Es­tate, Tooth Fairy Den­tal, ASB, Te Puke Phys­io­ther­apy and TruTest for their val­ued sup­port.

TONY’S Ke­babs and Pizza owner Tony An­droos is pre­sented with a Te Puke High School T-shirt by promis­ing rugby player Lukas Har­ris and coach Jack­son Reuben-Swin­ton.
