Cherub Tamasi is the first to admit that her first year at secondary school was tricky, but a desire to study nursing gave her a new passion for education and she hasn't looked back since. Highlights include being a confirmed as a 2016 Prefect, excellent results in Physical Education, Science and Health. Cherub is equally committed to sport and has represented her school in netball, volleyball and 1st XV girls rugby.
She was on Tamaki College's Sports Council which organised inter-house sporting competitions. Cherub has attended the KATTO programme, the Hauora Science Programme, the STAR Nursing programmes and the LENS (Liggins Education Network for Science) programme.
"Cherub is a young woman with clear goals and a strong sense of purpose who is determined to take her place in the world and as a school we know the nation as a whole will be better for it," said Tamaki College principal Soana Pamaka.
