PROSPECTUS -- The College prospectus has been distributed by mail (to in zone students) and through contributing schools. Copies are also available from the Howick College reception office. Information about process and dates follows. Personalised Enrolment: Unlike other schools we do not operate a postal enrolment system. We value the face to face enrolment meeting. The enrolment meeting - with senior staff - gives parents and students the opportunity to ask and discuss things in person. This is particularly useful for making known both special talents and interests or difficulties relating to learning which can then help us to better meet individual needs. Enrolment evenings: In Zone Parents and students are asked to attend on either Thursday 1 August between 4.00 -- 6.00pm or Tuesday 6 August between 5.00 -- 7.00pm. Please bring the completed enrolment form and proof of being resident in zone and a copy of the student's birth certificate (if NZ born) or passports of both student and parent (if over- seas born).

Tenderising you within an inch of your life with sponsor’s logos, trim- ming the last dollar out of you for the 17th jersey the Warriors have worn this season? Too often, the decisions made by those in charge of sport are to curry favour with could-be consumers and their disposable income, at the expense of traditional supporters. Such choices include prioritising Twenty20 cricket over test matches, because the new target fan doesn’t have a long enough attention span, or sanitising rugby league because of the mythical mother banning her youngster from playing due to exces- sive violence. One of Aesop’s fables tells of a dog with a piece of meat in its mouth crossing a bridge over a river. The dog sees its refection and, thinking it to be another dog with a larger piece of meat, leaps into the water to try and take it. Applied to sport, administrators (the dog) have traditional fans (the meat) in their mouth. The supporters are trapped in the dog’s teeth out of blind loyalty to their code. The dog would have to do something pretty stupid to lose the traditional fans’ patronage. But wait! The pool of prospective fans in the refection is potentially bigger than the throng of devoted traditionalists. So the dog dives in head frst with new laws appealing to protective mums, halftime entertainment to jazz up the product, a Bledisloe test for Anzac ex-pats in Hong Kong and league matches at rugby venues. And with every innovation dreamed up to entice more fair-weather fans to a sport, the traditional supporter slowly slips from the dog’s clench as their code is butchered by bonus points and power plays. Maintaining a steady but satisfed fan base is at odds with the perpetual growth maxim that drives the capi- talist market. However, as these oh so desir- able consumers swing between T20 cricket and rugby league without shoulder charges, the old-school fan hopes administrators will realise it is better the dog you know. Or that they can’t have their meat and eat it too. TEAMS from Saint Kentigern Col- lege fnished on the podium in all but one of the time trial races at the North Island secondary school cycling championships. Leading the way for the school at the event in Cambridge on July 13 was the year 7-8 boys’ team of Ryan Church, Callum Walsh, Will Ellett and Jacob Hannan. The boys claimed gold over the 16-kilometre course, winning in 30 minutes 43 seconds, less than three seconds ahead of runners-up Palm- erston North Normal Intermediate. In the senior boys’ race, St Kents’ Rogan Tomlinson-Gillies, Samuel Dakin, Liam Ward, Fraser MacDon- ald and Ayden Lamont fnished sec- ond in 24m 27s, behind Hamilton Boys’ High. St Kents also had third placings in the junior girls’, junior boys’ and sen- ior girls’ races. The only team from the Pakuranga school not to make the top three was the year 7-8 girls’, which came 11th in its frst race together. St Kents also came home with three silver medals from the road races the following day. Walsh fnished three seconds behind the winner in the 15km under- 13 boys’ event, in 36m 56s. James Fouche won a sprint for sec- ond in the 28km under-16 boys’ race, beating nearly 30 riders who crossed within eight seconds of his 52m 16s time. Mikayla Harvey was narrowly pipped for the gold in the girls’ under-16 event, fnishing with the same time as the winner from Palm- erston North Girls’ High. St Kents is also in the top two in all of the divisions after four rounds of the Auckland secondary school team time trial series. With four straight wins, St Kents has a frm grip on the senior boys’ and girls’ titles. St Kents shares the lead with Auckland Grammar in the junior boys’ standings, with two wins and two seconds, while its junior girls have consistently fnished in second behind Baradene. There are three rounds remain- ing in the series, held on Sun- days in Man- gere. The next race is on August 4.
