All and commitment to the house and school from the these little things caused disruption to the term and for those girls who aren't accustomed to this type of school life, boy do I have news for you! This is the King's College lifestyle. By joining King's, you commit to busy days filled with class, lunchtime events, meetings, sports trainings, games, cultural activities and much more. It's these things that seperate us from other schools and it's these things that make me love this college. Swimming sports and athletics day were a huge success in my opinion as I saw so many of the girls girls. Turning up to the Sunday chapel, house participating, mixing with their boy houses and events and co curricular activities goes further than just having fun. Whether they were a runner, you'd think. I can't wait to see how the rest of the jumper, thrower or kicker or just being a real MVP year unfolds and what new found talents we have for participating, I know all the boy houses were within the house.

THE WORK number page OF THE TAYLOR 7 COMMITTEE The Taylor Committee is a group of Taylor non-prefects whom run initiatives within King’s, Taylor House and also the wider Otahuhu community. This is a great way to fundraise for numerous charities that we choose to support, and for Taylor House to make it’s mark! This year, the Taylor Committee consists of 25 Girls. I am very excited to have such a great group of motivated and devoted students as part of the committee. So far, we have organised Minty-B, a vegan coconut ice-cream truck for Athletics Day - which was a great hit. Minty-B is a business run by ex-collegians Jamie Gibbons and Gemma Scarborough. In total Minty-B raised $250 for our sponsored guide dog. Furthermore, on the 27th March the Taylor committee visited Otahuhu Primary to hand out easter eggs. This was a lovely way to spread the easter cheer, and was great to see the smiles of the Otahuhu Primary students. A massive thank you to all the Girls of Taylor house for helping fund the purchasing of all 532 easter eggs. The committee could not have done it without your support. In the upcoming terms we have a very exciting event on the horizon. In Term 3, on Thursday 16th August the Taylor Committee Fashion show will take place. Keep an eye out for news surrounding this. Myself and the committee hope to organise a fun show enjoyable for all. Information regarding which labels will be showcased and where to buy tickets will be released in term 2. A special thanks to all the Girls of the Taylor Committee. I appreciate your commitment and look forward to our future progression as a committee. Keep your eyes peeled for more Taylor Committee news! - Mary Weatherall, Year 13 Head of Taylor Committee
INTERNATIONAL WOMENS DAY FABIANA MAZZA -CARSON When Audrey Lourde - feminist, writer, librarian, lesbian and civil rights activist - wrote the words “I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own,” what she meant was feminism means equality. And equality means everyone. Today when we talk about feminism, when we talk about the advances we as a society have made when it comes to women’s rights, what we are actually often talking about is white feminism. We mean the gender pay gap in the western world is closing (it’s not), we mean everyone in the western world is comfortable with labelling themselves a feminist (untrue), we mean we are closer in the western world than ever before to achieving total equality between the sexes (we aren’t). We ignore the fact that while we’re calling Kim Kardashian “progressive” for posting nudes on Instagram, girls in Nigeria are still being kidnapped by terrorist groups, girls in Saudi Arabia are still not allowed to try on clothes when they go shopping, and just because Malala is getting an Oxford education, it doesn’t mean every Afghanistani woman is. So when the 5 girls on the International Women’s Day breakfast committee sat down to discuss our plans for the morning a week or two into the school year, our goal was to ensure that while we celebrated the progress we as a school and society had made, we didn’t ignore all the work that was still to be done. Domestic abuse is something women all around the world are still fighting against. From New Zealand to Nicaragua to the United States of America, whether we identify as cisgender, transgender, gay or straight, number page white or black, it’s something we are all at risk of. Domestic abuse is an intersectional issue - intersectional meaning effecting all strata of society, therefore making it the opposite of white feminism. When it came time to choose a charity to donate the proceeds of the morning to, we settled on Women’s 8 Refuge - not only because it’s local but also
also because its an intersectional organisation. The up with the changing conversations around fact that we were fundraising for such a serious feminism. That we aim not only to advance ourselves problem, one which truely exemplifies all the work but also to advance the women the rest of the world there is still to be done regarding women’s rights has forgotten about. Because until all Afghani girls meant that for me, at least, the atmosphere of the are getting the education they deserve, until morning went from being carefree and lighthearted transgender girls are counted as statistics of to charged with an almost political energy. We were domestic violence, until lesbian girls are able to gathered to acknowledge something, to address disregard the stereotypes heterosexual girls threw something, as opposed to just celebrate something. off long ago, until every woman in the world is truely We were gathered not the name of white feminism, free and truely equal, we are not truely equal. We are but of intersectional feminism, and that in itself was still shackled to the ground. We are still unfree. undeniably progressive. An excerpt from Fabiana’s speech from the breakfast: The highlight of the morning itself was a These days, I would say, being a woman means presentation from ex-Kings student Jo Martin, a forgetting. That our rights to do these things were personal branding expert and former journalist, who not ours to begin with. That the ink that signs gave a rousing talk on the realities of being a woman woman’s rights declarations around the world is the in the workplace. She spoke openly and honestly same ink with which Mary Shelley wrote a literary about her experiences in the corporate world, masterpiece, only to have it attributed to her debunking myths and leaving the crowd optimistic husband. That ink is the same paint that was on for the future to come. I myself gave a short speech Margaret Keene’s palate as she painted works she on the above Audrey Lourde quote with the aim of would later have to sue the man she had once loved formally introducing intersectional feminism and for ownership rights to. That paint is the same blood Kings College. that flows from the cuts and bruises of abused woman suffering in silence. That blood is the same It’s not our fault - as members of a relatively sweat that drips off the foreheads of single mothers privileged and isolated community it can be easy to killing themselves to raise children. And it is ink, pretend like we are the centre of the universe, both paint, blood and sweat that is barley dry. at Kings and in the Western world. But we aren’t. And its important now more than ever that we keep - Fabiana Mazza-Carson, Year 13
number page TERM ONE SPORTS 11 REPORT This term has consisted of many sporting fixtures, from school swimming sports and athletics day, to our Taylor vs Middlemore sporting events of Cricket, Orienteering and Volleyball. Our Taylor vs Middlemore games are always heated, bringing out a strong rivalry between the houses. This year these rivalries were intensified majorly by the outburst of Taylor support on the sidelines. Although this wasn't always in tune the support from our Taylor girls lifted the teams spirits in the rough moments the girls experienced in cricket and volleyball. Although we narrowly lost both cricket and volleyball we have huge faith in our hockey, football, touch and netball teams to put Middlemore in their place. In saying this the orienteers of Taylor did us proud at House Orienteering on Sunday March 11th, beating Middlemore by over 30 points. This success giving us an edge for the overall Taylor vs Middlemore cup. Well done to all the girls who have been part of these fixtures so far, I am looking forward to more girls getting involved out on the sporting field and supporting on the sidelines. - Claire Johnston, Head of Sport
SWIMMING SPORTS Swimming sports 2018 proved to yet again be a successful event for the girls in Taylor. Every girl proudly represented their boy house and gave it their all in the water. The afternoon started with each house entering to their walk in song, dressed in their costumes and chanting their hearts out. The first girls event was the 50m freestyle B final taken out by a new Year 11, Lily Douglas. Allegra Zacest went on to defend her 50m backstroke title. I won the girls 100 freestyle, 50 butterfly and 100 individual medley setting a new school record time and managed to secure the overall Girls Title for 2018. Special mentions also go out to Olivia Benison, Maia Adams, Lucy Hunter and Isabella Ng who hit the podium in their respected events. The swimming was concluded with the house relays. The girls 6 x 25m house relay was taken out by Selwyn followed by Greenbank and School. The day finished with prize giving where Selwyn won the best overall girls house, followed closely by Greenbank and then School. Overall it was a successful day for the girls of Taylor and I am sure that there efforts were greatly appreciated by their boy houses. - Annabelle McLaren, Year 12
