Congratulations to Connor Seddon and Helen Prime (both Year 12) and Jacobi Kohu-Morris (Year 11) who represented Logan Park High School with considerable vigour and skill at the Otago Southland Russell McVeagh Debating competition on the 17th and 18th of May. There were 28 teams involved and the Logan Park team (all first-timers) can be very proud of reaching the semi-finals of the competition.
Logan Park entered three teams in the recent Model United Nations Assembly (MUNA) for Otago/Southland. For the third year in a row LPHS won best team and two Logan Park students won best speaker awards.
Winning LPHS team members representing the UK were Matthew Scadden, Blake McAlevey-Scurr, Charlie Ruffman and Peter Barnett.
Twenty one students and 5 teachers enjoyed a wonderful two week trip to Vietnam in the April school holidays. Highlights of the tour included a school visit in Hoian, shopping for souvenirs in the crowded old quarter of Hanoi, kayaking on Halong Bay, eating everything from spring rolls to whole fish and the insights into the recent and past history of the area from the two guides.
