Last term we had seven students from Somerville represent our school in the Manukau Beautification Awards held at the Vodafone Events Centre.

This event included primary, intermediate and secondary schools from around Auckland. The students were:

Finn O'Sullivan
Jemma Woodard
Gemma Vincent
Tabitha Boswell
Bree Luca
Alexia Delport
Nathaniel Dalton-Wilson


The theme of the awards this year was 'Friend or Foe' in reference to how our environment is endangered by pests and pollution. All of our students took to the catwalk under effects lights, and with representatives from business and fashion industry looking on.

Much to our delight we took out the second place with Bree Luca's garment titled 'Kea Queen' and Alexia Delport took a merit for her creation of plastic bottles, into a garment representing the danger of plastic to our oceans. Congratulations Bree and Alexia!

All of the students are to be commended for their efforts and participation in this evening.
