Amazing news. Two AGGS Pūhoro students have been selected to attend the 2020 Āmua Ao overseas experience to Silicon Valley and San Francisco in April. The tauira on this trip will be exposed to overseas companies and gain an understanding of the indigenous people of the area. The experience will also help build their leadership skills and expand their horizons as to what is possible as Māori and global citizens of the world.
Congratulations Kahlia Pai and Jessica Jerry!
