If You Want Your Child to Succeed in Life …Come & Learn How
Prof. Adele Diamond and Paul Blackman
If you were lucky enough to catch Adele Diamond’s presentation in May this year you won’t
want to miss the follow up she has sent to the people of Mercury Bay.
She won’t be with us in person but has entrusted Paul Blackman to deliver this on her behalf.
Free presentation at MBAS Library 7pm-8.30pm Wednesday Nov 1 2017
All Parents, Children, Educators, Medical Practitioners, Mental Health practitioners & anyone with an interest in their child’s future are welcome.
Adele’s discoveries have impacted education around the world and she is recognized as one the 15 most influential neuroscientists in the world. She has discovered the key to a successful life, be it in health, wealth, education, relationships & life in general is about self-control. The now world famous “Dunedin Study” in New Zealand has come to the same conclusions. Paul has worked with her material for the past five years explaining how to put neuroscience theory into practice by delivering workshops, speaking at conferences and working with teachers, parents and professionals nationally.
With 40 years experience, Paul is a qualified Guidance Counsellor , RTLB and teacher.
Discover the secrets of how to think ‘outside of the box’, learn self-control, expand creativity & problem solving and how to use your working memory. Learn how making the right decisions & choices and how following your passions improves executive functions, academic outcomes and mental & physical health.
Adele’s research clearly shows how executive functions ( the parts of the brain responsible for self-control) can be improved especially with very young children. She offers a different perspective that addresses children’s emotional, social & physical needs. We need to nurture our whole child to grow into an amazing human being. Come & listen to Paul as he explains the practical applications of her research and how it links to your child’s success.
If your child presents with learning differences this talk will also be beneficial for you & your child. All welcome

Congratulations to the following students who have been identified by Magic zone selectors at Secondary School Netball competitions for 2017 to attend player development training squads for Netball Waikato Bay of Plenty for 2017/18.
The MBAS Year 11 Business Studies class is organising a pop-up shoe and clothing shop at the end of this term on Thursday 6th July in the school Library from 3p.m. - 5 p.m. All of the proceeds from this one-off sale will be donated to the Starship Oncology Unit.
Tangos Shoes has generously donated a large stock of shoes and boots to sell at very heavily discounted prices (from $10 - $20 per pair). All new and still in their boxes!
With the school ball coming up at the end of July we would like to be able to offer for sale any unwanted ball dresses, suits and shirts and suitable accessories, again with all sale proceeds going to the Starship Oncology Unit.
If you have suitable items to donate these can be left at the school office any time before Monday 3rd July.
The students of Year 11 Business Studies.
