LEVEL 3 LOCKDOWN EXTENDED FOR AUCKLAND

Published: Saturday, 15 August 2020 08:57

The Government has announced that Auckland will remain in lockdown for a further 12 days until midnight on Wednesday 26 August.   This means that for most students online learning will continue.  The daughters of essential workers can however continue to come to school, where they will be supervised while they work on the online learning programme which will be provided to all students.

Our Open Day and Information Evening which were due to be held on 26 August have been postponed. As soon as a new date is possible and decided we will promote this. 
We are continuing to accept enrolment applications for next year; these can be completed online or you can download an enrolment form, scan and send to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by post to P O Box 68-053, Victoria Street West, Auckland 1142.  

All school sport is also cancelled during the lockdown and our celebratory AGGStraordiary week, due to be held next week, which we were all so looking forward to has also been postponed.

While the return to lockdown is disapponting we know that it is necessary and we encourage you all to follow Government advice, stay safe and look after each other - per angusta ad augusta.

LEVEL 3 LOCKDOWN 12 to 14 August

Published: Wednesday, 12 August 2020 07:46

The Prime Minister has just announced that Auckland is going into Level 3 lockdown from midday today, 12 August,  because there are four cases of covid-19 in the community.
This means that school is closed today, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The only exception is for students of essential workers.
If you are an essential worker and you need your daughter to attend school, she is to meet in the Study Hall at 9am.
For all other students, teachers will be posting information on their Google Classroom sites of work to be completed while we remain in lockdown.
We will be updating you as we receive more information.

Welcome back everyone to Term 3.  It's going to be a busy term, all school sport is back and sporting competitions will be in full swing this term.   There are a number of themed weeks organised during Term 3 as well and these will kick off with STEM Week.  Our STEM Committee has organised an exciting week of fun lunchtime STEM activities from 27 to 31 July.  During the week our girls can learn how to program and control robots, make their own lava lamps and do it yourself slime, play Numbers games, build the highest marshmallow tower and take part in the very interestingly named 'How to Make the Egg Survive' Physics challenge.   While all this is going on our Year 12 Social Studies class, as a social action project, is running a Whole School Food Bin Drive culminating in a mufti day on Friday 31st July with all proceeds going to the Auckland City Mission.
