I don’t know about you, but we are only two weeks in and it feels like I never left. It can be difficult to find the motivation to keep going, but that’s when you have to remind yourself why you are here and studying. Education is not only good for you as an individual, but it is good for society, as it develops our skills and enables us to think critically and be better able in our role as the conscience of society. So, keep at it!

It’s still early days, so it’s a really good chance to take stock of what you are doing for the trimester and organise yourself. Try and spread your workload by starting things early and making sure you are taking breaks. Breaks and having fun are important in the balance of work, study, and play.
Speaking of fun, the Student Representation Celebration is coming up on Thursday 16 August, at Milk and Honey at 6pm. All class representatives, faculty delegates, and other student representatives are invited to celebrate the success of their peers, hear from DVC Māori Rawinia Higgins, and have a good time. The way it works is that students nominate (now open!) class representatives who have done an outstanding job and can nominate a lecturer for Lecturer of the Year! This is the only lecturer award chosen by the students. It’s important to have your say and recognise the students who help shape your experience and help increase the quality of your education at Victoria University.
If you are a class representative or other form of student representative and haven’t heard from us, get in touch with
Here’s to having a trimester of fun, balance, and of course, quality learning <3

:   I wanted to write this piece, in order to connect to all tauira within the University, with the hope that we can all remind ourselves that we are a part of an environment which is valuable, no matter our culture, our beliefs or our skin colour. The ultimate purpose of this
