Newmont Gold Waihi Education Officer
5 yr. old Video's - Each new entrant child to Waihi Central has an older student make a movie of their first day and burn it to dvd. This is then presented at our celebration assemblies fortnightly.

Fair Go Ad. Awards - Over the last two years we have placed first and third respectively winning a variety of cameras and cash. Our students have done exceedingly well in this area.

Ag. Digital Awards - Over the last two year of entering Annette Sims our Office Manger has worked with our children in a variety of categories. Our children in the two years of entering have had the most finalists selected which is a very admirable feat. A very prestigious competition where Central Kids have again shone.

KWN - Panasonic - In 2009 Waihi Central was annouced the KWN winners for the entire NZ region competing against Secondary and Primary schools throughout the country. Our 'Living Next To A Mine Pit' documentrary won two children a trip to Singapore and 8 more children a helicopter ride. We were very proud of our children and how well they have done.

Pumphouse TV - Currently we run Pumphouse TV fortnightly with our children recording shows relating to our school and having them published for all classes to view and also on our Internet for the world to see. Check out a show.

Week That Was - Every two weeks our children star in a movie about the things that have been happening throughout the past two weeks. This is then played on our office LCD screen for Parents to view over the next few weeks.
