  • Creating Hybrid Learning Opportunities for Digital Natives

    Allysha Mae Mateo '18 & Nohealani Hee '18
    In our opinion Hybrid Classes are the most effortless type of learning for students today. As teenagers we base everything around technology and the internet; we live on our phones, tablets, and laptops. Hybrid classes were first introduced to us this year; we had the opportunity to participate in hybrid classes with Marketing, Business, and Entrepreneurship classes as part of the Maryknoll Mx Business program. These classes implement a teaching and learning style where half of the time we are in class-face to face with teachers and the other half we are completing work online. This type of class taught us how to develop as an individual while learning time management, responsibility, and how to utilize components of technology in a productive way.

    Kehau Gilliland '18
    Looking out into Heʻeia Fishpond, I can see many years of hard work right before my eyes. My ancestors spent years passing rocks from mauka (mountain) to makai (ocean). The intelligence of our kupuna is why this fishpond has been feeding so many past generations. It was the legacy that was left for my generation’s kuleana to maintain this fishpond. I’ve volunteered at Paepae ʻo Heʻeia numerous times and each time I go, the experience makes me want to come back even more.

  • Bridging Cultures on Basketball Court

    Noah Furtado '21
    Even with an increasingly globalized world, it is still easy for people to view only the surface of countries separated by long stretches of ocean. For many, storied political tensions, like those between China and the U.S., distort our vision because many are without personal experiences in these foreign nations. Through Maryknoll School’s Common Goal Diplomacy Program, we not only experienced educational diplomacy among peers, but we also witnessed the significance of cultural exchange and the finding of common ground.
