Long Bay College student Max Crawford has won the “Create your own A” competition held by Te Auaha New Zealand Institute of Creativity recently. 

The Year 12 student won a brand new MacBook Pro which was presented by Te Auaha’s Radio Training School Programme Manager Larry Summerville. Max’s artwork, created with his own style of illustrations with many different characters, will also appear on posters around Wellington.

Max is a Digital Prefect at Long Bay College next year and is keen to pursue his studies in graphic and UI/UX design. He comes from a proud family of artists.

We can’t wait to see more of the digital design and photographic works of art Max will produce.


Rai Valley School Exchange

Recently a group of Long Bay College students travelled to Nelson for a student exchange.

The five days spent at Rai Valley were jam-packed with amazing activities and lots of learning opportunities. The students spent time milking cows, fishing, horse riding, going on beautiful scenic walks and eating some very unusual foods like huhu grubs. They then visited the Marlborough Sounds on the Pelorus mail boat, encountering pods of Dusky Dolphins along the way who were very playful. On their final day in Rai, the students we were lucky enough to experience Rai Valley Area School's annual pet day, where they got to cuddle adorable puppies and ducklings. 

The Long Bay College students then brought a group of students from Rai Valley back with them to Auckland. The Rai students attended school at LBC which was a bit of a shock for them to be amongst the 1700 students at the College - their school has around 100 students!

The exchange was a great learning experience for everyone involved filled with many jokes, laughs and awesome people who have made lifelong friends.
