Super 8 Cultural Festival Results

Last Friday a contingent of our most talented artists, musicians, speakers and performers crossed the Kaimais to contest the 2016 Super 8 Cultural Festival being hosted by Tauranga Boys' College.  As is so often the case, the overall result depended on the very last event, which in this instance was the ability of the Senior Debating Team to argue the possible merits of a Donald Trump presidency.  Fortunately (or worryingly, because it would mean our debaters actually found some credible potential benefits!) the team were able to do this, and HBHS took out the festival and brought back a very impressive collection of trophies.  The full list of results is as follows, and we congratulate these boys on their efforts.
