Pompallier Shield - 3 May 2023
Representatives from the diocesan secondary schools and colleges gathered at Pompallier Catholic College in Whangarei on 3rd May for the relaunch of the Pompallier Shield. It had been due to take place in 2020 but was postponed due to the COVID pandemic, so by 2023 the staff and students were eager to demonstrate their skills and mentoring across numerous formats of Junior and Senior Scripture Reading, Te Reo Māori Scripture, Senior Oratory, Junior Prepared Speech and Group Waiata. The competition was stiff and the nerves high, but the students performed to the best of their ability an represented themselves, their schools and colleges and whanau superbly.
Our hosts at Pompallier Catholic College were wonderful and provided food, smiles and a warm Northland welcome. It was well worth the wait and delays over the pandemic years.
We congratulate all those who prepared the students, those who took part and Pompallier for their hosting, our special congratulations goes to all those who gained places and to St Mary’s College in Ponsonby as the new holder and custodians of the Pompallier Shield until we gather again at Rosmini College in 2024.
