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.
