Rosmini College Year 11 student Anthony Pita, 15, of Devonport was selected in May for the NZSA (New Zealand Society of Authors) Youth Mentoring Programme. Anthony sent in some examples of creative writing pieces that he has been working on at home, to be judged by NZSA. He was one of only four young people selected from across the country.
Anthony has been matched up with a mentor who will work with him over the next year to develop his writing skills further. This is especially exciting for Anthony as he has always had a passion for creative writing and would like to pursue a career in this field.
In early June, Rosmini College Year 11 student Ben Drury, 15, of Mairangi Bay competed in the South Pacific International and New Zealand National Accordion Championships winning all three classes that he entered. Ben also won the Under 15 South Pacific Accordion Solo Championship Cup.
