In the last week of term, our Sustainability class collaborated with MIT's Horticultural Department to create a well-being garden for the mental health unit at Auckland Hospital.
The girls working with MIT students built and planted planter boxes before they were transported to the hospital at lunchtime.
In the afternoon, the Year 12 students completed their report on how this collaborative action contributed to a sustainable future, while the Year 13 students used what they learned in the collaborative project to develop and report on how this could be developed into personal action for a sustainable future.
The project is now complete and planters have been relocated to Auckland Hospital Well-being Garden.

On Thursday 5 September we were delighted to welcome back to our school two very special guests, former students; Tiana Epati, newly elected President of the NZ Law Society and AGGS student from 1989 to 1993 and Raukura Turei, Architect, Actress, Artist and AGGS student from 1989 to 1993. Both women gave inspiring and motivational addresses. A special speech award in memory of Dame Dorothy Winstone, after whom our school theatre is named, was presented to Year 12 student Odille Maeata'anoa, who delivered her winning speech. Founding Day awards, generously provided by the Auckland Grammar Old Girls' Trust and our Board of Trustees, were presented to individual students chosen by their Deans in Years 11 to 13 and to one student from our Kahurangi Whanau Unit. It was a wonderful day of connection and celebration of our school and of our students, both past and present.
