​On 24 September we held a powhiri at Te Kainga Wananga for our new CEO Stewart Whyte. Students and staff were joined by representatives of Ngati Whatua, along with Stewart and his whanau, who had travelled from Wellington and Napier to support him. Heartfelt speeches, a rousing haka and beautiful waiata marked the occasion, which was rounded off by delicious kai. InZone wishes Stewart a very warm welcome.

​Once again, we are proud to acknowledge two of our boys who have had the honour of being selected this year as prefects at Auckland Grammar School. Heremaia Murray and Nikau Reti-Beazley follow in the footsteps of former InZone alumni and prefects, Marco Fepuleai, Curt Manukia, Antonio Ripata, Seth Baker, Payton Taplin and Denzel Wiki.
To be nominated, boys need to demonstrate leadership potential, display initiative, a sense of responsibility, and relate positively to others. They also need to understand and support 'The Grammar Way', which includes maintaining high personal standards and living the School's values.
Heremaia says he was “quite stoked” about being made a prefect. The 7th former, who is taking a mix of arts and science subjects, is also involved in the school’s Kapa Haka group, plays touch rugby, is in the school’s rugby 2A team, and is a mentor in the school’s Tuakana Teina mentoring programme for Maori and Pasifika students. He says he has “a lot of ideas” about what he wants to do when he leaves school; a rugby player, a pilot, an electrician or a plumber.
Nikau, who as Senior Prefect, and part of a five-strong prefects’ leadership team at  school, says he was “pretty surprised” to be chosen because “others could easily have been picked as well.” He takes science and maths subjects, and is hoping to study medicine or dentistry at university. He placed third in the Senior Maori section of the regional finals of the prestigious secondary school speech competition, Ngā Manu Kōrero last year. Like Heremaia, he is also in the school’s Kapa Haka group, and a mentor in the school’s Tuakana Teina mentoring programme for Maori and Pacifika students. He plays Premier Basketball and in the schools rugby 2B team.
He says for him the role is about upholding the school’s values, leading by example, bringing unity and raising cultural awareness.
“Grammar’s a school that continues to set the standard.”
