38 students and four teachers are spending the April School Holidays on a History tip to the USA.  First stop was Washington DC where they visited the Whitehouse, the Smithsonian Institute, the largest research museum in the world, and they are also pictured below posing with the statue of Martin Luther King Jr.  On the agenda during their trip are visits to New York - highlights in New York will include visits to the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolian Museum and the 9/11 Memorial Museum.

Then it's off to Boston for another three nights, where they will have a guided tour of Harvard University, walk the Freedom trail, and spend half a day at the JFK Museum.

Finally they are back in Los Angeles for the last three nights before flying home just in time for the start of Term 2.

 Hillary Outdoors collage

During the course of a week long camp at the Hillary Outdoors Camp in Turangi  at the end of March, our Year 13 Physical Education students were challenged to complete various tasks, that were not only physically demanding, but also emotionally draining. For example, they did caving, and were asked to slip into tiny claustrophobic spaces in the dark and somehow work together to find a way out. All of this, after a full day of tramping through rugged terrain, and then only to sleep under a fly (a tent with no sides) leaving them exposed to the elements and as the girls discovered…possums chewing through their packs seeking out food!

From Japan with love

Hi, my name is Lily Barraclough, I’m a Year 13 student and have been studying Japanese at AGGS for roughly 4 years now. Learning Japanese has been an extremely rewarding experience and helped me to achieve my dream of travelling to Japan in the December of 2018.

As the plane descended on Narita International Airport, my heart skipped a beat in excitement and suspense at having finally arriving in the Land of the Rising Sun. Looking down at Tokyo, I was half-expecting to see a giant Godzilla rise up from the murky waters of Tokyo Bay, just like in the movies. Luckily, my worst fears were never actualised and as the sun set, casting the cloud cover in bright crimson colour, far in the distance I could spot one of the many familiar symbols of Japan: Great Mount Fuji loomed above the fluffy clouds, kindly welcoming us.
