Brie Bella of Maryknoll School wins 2014 USA Judo Youth and Scholastic National Championship

On March 22, Maryknoll’s own Brie Bella won the 2014 Female Intermediate 2 -28 kg. division at the Youth & Scholastic National Championships.

Brie travelled with her team, Hawaii Tenri Judo Club, to Irving, Texas to compete with more than 600 of her peers from all over the United States. Brie has been doing judo with Hawaii Tenri Club since she was five. Her father and brother are also judo champions, so the love for the sport runs in the family. 

Brie has a strong passion for the humble sport, and she works hard to accomplish her goals. Her winning attitude matched with diligence and determination has helped her to become the strong athlete she is. 

Even as a three-time champion, Brie, like most accomplished athletes, still got her fair share of jitters before it was her turn to get on the mat and compete. Her focus was quickly regained as soon as she got her first grip, and she went on to be undefeated throughout the entire competition.

I love judo, and I am so happy for my win!  But I know there's a lot more for me to learn. #judoalwaysonmymind.” (her Instagram tagline) says the young champ. With her new acquired gold medal, Brie was awarded a spot on the USA Judo Junior World Team.  This honor allows Brie to compete internationally, including the upcoming Ilioupolis Cup International in Athens, Greece and the Grand Prix Marcinelle in Marcinelle, France.

Eighth Grade 2014 D.C. Trip

Maryknoll students embarked on their annual and much anticipated eighth grade trip on Thursday, March 20. Each year, the eighth grade class travels together on an educational and very memorable trip that they wait for all year long. An excited bunch of 40 students and four teachers are taking part in the “2014 D.C. Trip.” Currently, they are experiencing some of America’s greatest treasures.

Pictured are our eighth graders in front the Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s home in Virginia. The house is on the UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization) list, regarded as one of the most prized landmarks in the world.

The trip will continue until March 30, and will include visits to Gettysburg, Philadelphia, and a multitude of memorials. Keep up with the students on Vice President Kris Kern’s blog that will serve you with photo and video updates along with more information outlining the trip at http://kriskern.weebly.com/blog.html.

Living Noblesse Oblige - Troy Kamiya - High School Teacher of the Week

Teacher of the Week: Troy Kamiya

Living Noblesse Oblige

            The importance of being there for others is a principle our Maryknoll Sisters have passed down to both our students and teachers here at Maryknoll School since its inception in 1927. That spirit lives on today at Maryknoll High School and is exemplified by the hard work and dedication sociology teacher Troy Kamiya has invested into helping others throughout his journey in life.

            Mr. Kamiya was born in Kaneohe and later moved with his family to the town of Kaimuki. He attended St. Mark’s Lutheran School until he was accepted to Punahou School in the 4th grade. While in high school, Mr. Kamiya enjoyed playing football and being a member of the Punahou track team. His fondest memories of high school are related to his experience as a Junior Leader in Kaimuki each summer when Mr. Kamiya would lead children in helping them to become young adults. During the school year, Mr. Kamiya also worked at various places like TCBY Yogurt and Chucky Cheese. Even at work, Mr. Kamiya found himself surrounded by children either wanting to eat yogurt or play video games. In retrospect, Mr. Kamiya wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. He loved being with kids so much that he even dressed up as Chucky Cheese a few times while working in Aina Haina just so he could see the joy in the eyes of the children there.

            After graduating from Puanhou School, Mr. Kamiya thought he would study the courses needed for him to become a school counselor. For that reason, he began taking many sociology courses. After four years, he attained his BA in Sociology from the University of Hawaii Manoa while working at the same time as Kaimuki’s YMCA Program Director. While in this position, Mr. Kamiya made the decision to eventually become a teacher because he was told by many people that school counselors, much like the position he held as program director, spent most of their time processing paperwork instead of being with kids. For that reason, Mr. Kamiya eventually applied for a teaching position at Maryknoll School and was hired soon after. He has been a teacher here ever since.

            At Maryknoll, Mr. Kamiya began as a substitute teacher, study hall facilitator, and also administered exams to students. In time, a position as social studies teacher opened when Della Au, sister of current principal Darcie Kawamura, left Maryknoll School for a career as a politician. Eventually, former sociology teacher Mr. Eackman retired and Mr. Kamiya took over the job of teaching sociology at Maryknoll School. Over the years, Mr. Kamiya has been actively involved at Maryknoll as an assistant coach of the Maryknoll’s varsity basketball team and Senate Advisor just to name a few.

            Mr. Kamiya loves working at Maryknoll School because he believes that like his former alma mater, Maryknoll School develops strong academic skills in their students. In addition to this, what makes Maryknoll School even more unique is that it also graduates students with a desire to make a difference in their respective communities. Through various projects, activities, and assignments, Mr. Kamiya does his best to teach his students that lesson and he is so proud of the many Maryknoll graduates that have continued in life with a desire to help those in need.

            We thank Mr. Kamiya for committing his life to helping children and young adults reach their full potential. In this way, Mr. Kamiya has lived our school motto of “Noblesse Oblige” and we are ever so grateful for him and his work. Thank you Mr. Kamiya for being a part of our Maryknoll family for so many years.

PTG Hosts Kindergarten Event

Mahalo to all the Kindergarten families who were able to join us on Saturday, August 18th for the Parent Teacher Guild’s Kindergarten event! In order to help our keiki transition into the school environment and feel comfortable with their new classrooms and teachers, Kindergarten students were able to experience what their first day of school will be like. The students learned the daily student routine, brought in their backpacks and learned to store them in their personal cubbies, met their teachers and peers, participated in a craft activity and played on the playground! Our Kindergarten parents also had the chance to meet other parents and become more familiar with our Parent Teacher Guild. We hope that this event will make it a little easier to drop of your children on their first day of school this week! Welcome to Maryknoll grade school, a nurturing community where your students embark on the exciting adventure of learning.

Journeying Through Lent

Our Lenten journey began this year with an all school Ash Wednesday Mass.  Lent afforded us the time to be other-centered by focusing on more intense prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Our campus was filled with many opportunities for reflection and action: celebrating the Sacrament of Reconciliation, Living Stations of the Cross, AGAPE Retreat, KAIROS Retreat, Senior Service Day, classroom Lenten reflections and activities, Seder Meal, Operation Rice Bowl, faculty/staff book reflection, our upcoming all school Holy Thursday prayer service, and your continued personal witness.  The faith life of Maryknoll continues to foster and define who we are - a faith filled community in service to one another.

As you travel through Holy Week may the blessings of our loving God be
upon your family.

Have a blessed Easter.
