Hamilton Boys' High School
Hamilton Boys' High School is a boys' secondary school in Hamilton, New Zealand and is the largest secondary school in the Waikato region. The school was established as Hamilton High School in 1911 but was split into separate boys' and girls' schools Hamilton Girls' High School, with the current school opened in February 1955; the school crest features a lion and star, bears the motto "Sapiens Fortunam Fingit Sibi" which translates to "a wise man carves his own fortune". The school colours are red. Most of the school's 2300 students are day boys from Hamilton and surrounding townships such as Cambridge, Te Awamutu, Morrinsville. Around 130 boys are housed in an onsite boarding hostel, Argyle House, which forms one of the six houses into which the school is divided; the boarding house is located on the school grounds, but is a private institution, with students paying $12,000 per year to attendIn 1999 the school appointed Susan Hassall to head the school. In doing so the school became one of the first boys' schools in New Zealand to appoint a female headmaster.
The school offers both the state run NCEA and external Cambridge International Examinations for students to undertake. In 2009 the school won the national secondary rugby championship school for the second year in a row defeating St Bede's College in the final 17-0 and went on to win the 2010 Sanix World Rugby Youth Invitational Tournament, beating Truro College 40-8. Hamilton Boys' High School has six houses. All of the day boy houses are named after former headmasters of the school. Tait - Red Taylor - Green Wilson - Blue Steel - Grey Baigent - Yellow Argyle - BlackAfter every House competition, the new scores will be added to the previous scores; the House with the highest amount of points at the end of the year gets to have its House name on the yearly House win list. Like all selective state schools, Hamilton Boys' High School operates an enrolment scheme. Enrolment was traditionally by academic examination followed by an interview. Alternatively a student might be enrolled; the school still examines new students but only for the purposes of streaming students.

Turangi is a small town on the west bank of the Tongariro River, 50 kilometres south-west of Taupo on the North Island Volcanic Plateau of New Zealand. It was built to accommodate the workers associated with the Tongariro hydro-electric power development project and their families; the town was designed to remain as a small servicing centre for the exotic forest plantations south of Lake Taupo and for tourists. It is well known for its trout fishing and calls itself "The trout fishing capital of the world"; the major Māori hapu of the Turangi area is Ngāti Tūrangitukua. The Turangi area covers some 2273 km², is located close to the edge of the Kaimanawa Ranges and ten kilometres north of the stretch of State Highway 1 known as the Desert Road; the streets around Turangi in autumn are lined with “brilliant” foliage. Built on the banks of the Tongariro River and its surrounding countryside offers challenging hunting, mountain biking, hiking or leisurely bush walks, white water rafting and sight seeing.
The town has a population of around 3500, it is the second largest population centre in the Taupo District. Turangi's population peaked at 9000 during the 1970s. Since the end of the Project in the 1980s the population has declined but has remained stable due to the town's handy location for tourists. Tourism and forestry are the mainstay of the community with the Department of Corrections two prisons, Genesis Energy, the Department of Conservation and farming being the main employers; the town is home to a Centre for Sustainable Practice at Awhi Farm, providing education and enterprise training. The area was settled by the people of Ngati Tuwharetoa, descendants of those who had settled in the Kawerau area; the major Tuwharetoa migration occurred from about the 16th century with a war party under command of Turangitukua who engaged in a number of battles against earlier inhabitants of the Taupo and Kaimanawa area. Following these battles a variety of settlements were established in the area with major pa established on the cliff overlooking the Tongariro River and at Waitahanui on the Tongariro Delta.
Another important settlement was at Tokaanu. The people who become known as Ngati Turangitukua associate with Waitahanui pa. From here they established a number of homesteads along both sides of the Tongariro River and its tributaries. Including houses along the main Highway to Taumarunui In 1910 construction of a wharepuni begun which became the Hirangi Marae complex; the first Europeans reached the Turangi area in the 1830s, however it was not until the 1850s that European settlement occurred with the construction of a Mission Station at Pukawa. In the 1880s and 1890s brown and rainbow trout were introduced into the lake and rivers of the area. A small fishing camp was established at Taupahi on the Tongariro river bank and a number of European fisherman camped here. In the 1920s two prison farms were opened at Rangipo and Hautu because of the isolated nature of the area. During this period the Morar family arrived from India and establishing a store in Tokaanu. By 1960 the population was about 500.
In the 1950s, in response to post World War II needs for rapid expansion of energy resources to meet the growing industrialisation in New Zealand, the Tongariro Power Scheme proposal was developed. The scheme would require a large construction force, provide accommodation for that force for the duration of the project. Four sites were considered for the township to accommodate the project workers: Rotoaira, Turangi West, Turangi East; the tourism potential of Lake Taupo was appreciated, as well as the economic benefits that could be captured by creating a permanent township. Taking in account accessibility and adequacy of suitable land for development of a township, it was decided to go with the Turangi West site. Construction of the town began late in 1964; the Government invested $16 million in the development and by May 1966, the population of Turangi had jumped from 500 to 2,500 people. By 1968 the population reached a high of 6,500. A model town with curving streets and cul-de-sacs, uniform houses, pedestrian shopping centre, parking lots and separation from the traffic on the main highway was created.
A publicity pamphlet published by the Ministry of Works in 1969 described Turangi at that time as a pleasant and attractive town of 5000 people which offered a ‘balanced community life’. The pamphlet enumerated the town's amenities and services, such as its mall, sports facilities, maternity hospital, and, not least, its wide, grassy verges and kerbing. Following the completion of the project in the late 1970s, the Ministry of Works and other government departments began a process of selling assets within the Turangi township. In 1989 Ngati Turangitukua registered with the Waitangi Tribunal; the claim was heard under urgency between April and October 1994, the Tribunal's Report was released in September 1995. The Tribunal found that the Crown had breached the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi in a number of ways: The Crown acquired Māori land at Turangi West when Crown land at Turangi East was available: The Crown did not adequately consult with Ngati Turangitukua regarding the construction of the township: The land taken for the township was in excess of the maximum area that the Crown promised it would take: The land the Crown undertook to lease for industrial purposes and return to the people after 10 to 12 years was compulsorily acquired and not returned: Wahi tapu were destroyed or damaged in the construction of the township: Adequate compensation was not paid for land acquired: The Crown did not give full effect to conservation values: The Crown did not

A secondary school is both an organization that provides secondary education and the building where this takes place. Some secondary schools can provide both lower secondary education and upper secondary education, but these can be provided in separate schools, as in the American middle and high school system. Secondary schools follow on from primary schools and lead into vocational and tertiary education. Attendance is compulsory in most countries for students between the ages of 11 and 16; the organisations and terminology are more or less unique in each country. Within the English speaking world, there are three used systems to describe the age of the child; the first is the'equivalent ages' countries that base their education systems on the'English model' use one of two methods to identify the year group, while countries that base their systems on the'American K-12 model' refer to their year groups as'grades'. This terminology extends into research literature. Below is a convenient comparison.
The building needs to accommodate: Curriculum content Teaching methods Costs Education within the political framework Use of school building Constraints imposed by the site Design philosophyEach country will have a different education system and priorities. Schools need to accommodate students, storage and electrical systems, support staff, ancillary staff and administration; the number of rooms required can be determined from the predicted roll of the school and the area needed. According to standards used in the United Kingdom, a general classroom for 30 students needs to be 55 m², or more generously 62 m². A general art room for 30 students needs to be 83 m ². A drama studio or a specialist science laboratory for 30 needs to be 90 m². Examples are given on, and 1,850 place secondary school. The building providing the education has to fulfil the needs of: The students, the teachers, the non-teaching support staff, the administrators and the community, it has to meet general government building guidelines, health requirements, minimal functional requirements for classrooms and showers, electricity and services and storage of textbooks and basic teaching aids.
An optimum secondary school will meet the minimum conditions and will have: adequately sized classrooms. Government accountants having read the advice publish minimum guidelines on schools; these enable environmental establishing building costs. Future design plans are audited to ensure. Government ministries continue to press for cost standards to be reduced; the UK government published this downwardly revised space formula in 2014. It said the floor area should be 1050m² + 6.3m²/pupil place for 11- to 16-year-olds + 7m²/pupil place for post-16s. The external finishes were to be downgraded to meet a build cost of £1113/m². A secondary school locally may be called high senior high school. In some countries there are two phases to secondary education and, here the junior high school, intermediate school, lower secondary school, or middle school occurs between the primary school and high school.

Anglicanism is a Western Christian tradition which has developed from the practices and identity of the Church of England following the English Reformation. Adherents of Anglicanism are called "Anglicans"; the majority of Anglicans are members of national or regional ecclesiastical provinces of the international Anglican Communion, which forms the third-largest Christian communion in the world, after the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church. They are in full communion with the See of Canterbury, thus the Archbishop of Canterbury, whom the communion refers to as its primus inter pares, he calls the decennial Lambeth Conference, chairs the meeting of primates, the Anglican Consultative Council. Some churches that are not part of the Anglican Communion or recognized by the Anglican Communion call themselves Anglican, including those that are part of the Continuing Anglican movement and Anglican realignment. Anglicans base their Christian faith on the Bible, traditions of the apostolic Church, apostolic succession and the writings of the Church Fathers.
Anglicanism forms one of the branches of Western Christianity, having definitively declared its independence from the Holy See at the time of the Elizabethan Religious Settlement. Many of the new Anglican formularies of the mid-16th century corresponded to those of contemporary Protestantism; these reforms in the Church of England were understood by one of those most responsible for them, Thomas Cranmer, the Archbishop of Canterbury, others as navigating a middle way between two of the emerging Protestant traditions, namely Lutheranism and Calvinism. In the first half of the 17th century, the Church of England and its associated Church of Ireland were presented by some Anglican divines as comprising a distinct Christian tradition, with theologies and forms of worship representing a different kind of middle way, or via media, between Protestantism and Roman Catholicism – a perspective that came to be influential in theories of Anglican identity and expressed in the description of Anglicanism as "Catholic and Reformed".
The degree of distinction between Protestant and Catholic tendencies within the Anglican tradition is a matter of debate both within specific Anglican churches and throughout the Anglican Communion. Unique to Anglicanism is the Book of Common Prayer, the collection of services in one Book used for centuries; the Book is acknowledged as a principal tie that binds the Anglican Communion together as a liturgical rather than a confessional tradition or one possessing a magisterium as in the Roman Catholic Church. After the American Revolution, Anglican congregations in the United States and British North America were each reconstituted into autonomous churches with their own bishops and self-governing structures. Through the expansion of the British Empire and the activity of Christian missions, this model was adopted as the model for many newly formed churches in Africa and Asia-Pacific. In the 19th century, the term Anglicanism was coined to describe the common religious tradition of these churches.
The word Anglican originates in Anglicana ecclesia libera sit, a phrase from the Magna Carta dated 15 June 1215, meaning "the Anglican Church shall be free". Adherents of Anglicanism are called Anglicans; as an adjective, "Anglican" is used to describe the people and churches, as well as the liturgical traditions and theological concepts developed by the Church of England. As a noun, an Anglican is a member of a church in the Anglican Communion; the word is used by followers of separated groups which have left the communion or have been founded separately from it, although this is considered as a misuse by the Anglican Communion. The word Anglicanism came into being in the 19th century; the word referred only to the teachings and rites of Christians throughout the world in communion with the see of Canterbury, but has come to sometimes be extended to any church following those traditions rather than actual membership in the modern Anglican Communion. Although the term Anglican is found referring to the Church of England as far back as the 16th century, its use did not become general until the latter half of the 19th century.
In British parliamentary legislation referring to the English Established Church, there is no need for a description. When the Union with Ireland Act created the United Church of England and Ireland, it is specified that it shall be one "Protestant Episcopal Church", thereby distinguishing its form of church government from the Presbyterian polity that prevails in the Church of Scotland; the word Episcopal is preferred in the title of the Episcopal Church and the Scottish Episcopal Church, though the full name of the former is The Protestant Episcopal Church of the United States of America. Elsewhere, the term "Anglican Church" came to be preferred as it distinguished these churches from others that maintain an episcopal polity. Anglicanism, in its structures and forms of worship, is understood as a distinct Christian tradition representing a middle ground between what are perceived to be the extremes of the claims of 16th-century Roman Ca
Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia
The Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia is an autonomous province of the Anglican Communion serving New Zealand, Tonga and the Cook Islands. Since 1992 the church has consisted of three tikanga or cultural streams: Aotearoa, New Zealand, Polynesia; the church's constitution says that, among other things, it is required to "maintain the right of every person to choose any particular cultural expression of the faith". As a result, the church's General Synod has agreed upon the development of the three-person primacy based on this three tikanga system, it has each representing a tikanga, who share authority. The Anglican Church is an apostolic church, tracing its bishops back to the apostles via holy orders. A New Zealand Prayer Book, containing traditional liturgies and blessings, is central to the church's worship. Since the 1960s and 1970s, the New Zealand Anglican Church has pursued a decidedly more liberal course; the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia is not established as an official church of any sovereign state, unlike the Church of England from which it grew.
However, Anglicans have taken a leadership role on New Zealand state occasions. The 2013 census recorded 469,036 Anglicans in the New Zealand part of the church; until 1992, the church was known as the "Church of the Province of New Zealand", was referred to as the "Church of England". It is now known as the "Anglican Church", reflecting its membership of the Anglican Communion. Members of the church are referred to as "Anglicans"; the Māori name for the New Zealand Anglican Church, te Hāhi Mihinare, reveals its origins in the work of the first missionaries to arrive in New Zealand. Anglicans began missionary work among Māori in 1814 through the Church Missionary Society, a voluntary evangelical group within the Church of England. Evangelicalism began as a movement within 19th-century Protestant churches in Britain that combined humanitarian activism with an emphasis on the personal experience of sin, the salvation gained through the death of Jesus Christ; the CMS mission to New Zealand was begun by Samuel Marsden, the Anglican chaplain in New South Wales.
He had met the Ngāpuhi chiefs Te Pahi and Ruatara when they travelled outside New Zealand, they encouraged him to visit their country. Ruatara provided protection at Rangihoua in the Bay of Islands. For the first years of the mission, intertribal Musket Wars hampered the missionaries’ movements and Māori interest in their message. Personal disputes between the early missionaries, their involvement in trading muskets compromised their efforts; however one of the first CMS missionaries, Thomas Kendall produced the first written versions of the Māori language. Henry Williams arrived to lead the New Zealand mission in 1823 and gave firm local leadership and new direction, emphasising evangelisation and peace-making between tribes. After Hongi Hika's death in 1828 the mission became less dependent on the goodwill and economic support of Māori. Henry's brother William Williams arrived in 1826 and led the work of translating the prayer book and the Bible into Māori; as Māori became literate, some became evangelists for the new teaching.
The number of Māori converts grew in the 1830s and early 1840s and Māori began to include Christian ideas in their world view. The conversion of a whole tribe together contrasted with the missionary emphasis on individual conversion. In England the church and state were interlinked and the Church of England had a special status guaranteed in law. Evangelicals, as loyal Anglicans, accepted this status and encouraged Māori to look to the British Crown for protection and recognition; as a result CMS missionaries Henry Williams, played a leading part in encouraging Māori to sign the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840. In years this missionary support for the treaty led to increasing disillusionment among Māori as the treaty was ignored by the colonial and settler governments; the emergence of Māori religious movements such as Pai Mārire and Ringatū reflected this rejection of missionary Christianity. When the missionary Carl Sylvius Völkner was suspected of spying by Māori in 1865, the fact that he was a member of the Anglican clergy afforded him no protection, he was executed.
After missionary work among Māori, the second major influence shaping the Anglican Church came from growing numbers of Anglican migrants. The early CMS missionary beginnings and the large number of settlers who came from England resulted in Anglicans becoming the largest of the religious denominations in New Zealand. In 1858 more than half the population was Anglican. George Augustus Selwyn became Bishop of New Zealand in 1841, he headed both the Māori and settler Anglican parts of the church. Evangelical missionaries were suspicious of his control over them and his emphasis on the authority of the church, while settlers were hostile towards his pro-Māori stance, he found himself caught between Māori and Pākehā issues of land and sovereignty. In 1865, who had served as a chaplain during the New Zealand Wars, wrote of the Anglican Church's relationship with Māori, "oh! How things have changed! How much of the buoyancy of hope has been sobered down by experience! when, instead of a nation of believers welcoming me as their father, I find here and there a
