In his last year at Howick College (2004) Mitch captained the Rugby First XV and was a member of the First XI Cricket team from 2002 - 2004. This team was in the NZSS Gillette Cup Top Four in 2003.
Congratulations to Sarah Hyde. She has been awarded a University of Waikato Academic Merit School Leaver Scholarship. This is awarded to a first year University student who gained NCEA Level 3 with a Merit endorsement.
A past student of Howick College, Brenton Thornton impressed Masterchef judge, Simon Gault so much that he offered him an apprenticeship. Brenton made the top four competitors in this year's Masterchef competition, and it is the first time someone other than the second place winner has been given such an opportunity.
We wish him all the best with his new career.
