   At the end of last term 20 eager Year 10 students spent a week in Tongariro at the Hillary Outdoors Centre.  This was an amazing opportunity made possible by the generosity of Foundation North and the Lion Foundation.

One of the girls who attended the camp writes:  "This camp really helped me to build new friendships and to work as a member of a team.  I conquered my fears and went on the flying fox that dangles above the Mangatepopo river.  We trekked uphill through the bush climbing a couple of rock walls on the way, we squeezed into tiny spaces when we went to the Okpata Caves where the glow worms were amazing to see.  Kayaking and swimming in Lake Taupo were also highlights.  My group also did an overnight hike in the bush, we carried 15kg packs with our tents, food and everything we needed for a night in the bush.   I think in total we walked 23 kms that day. "

Although tough at times this was a wonderful experience that I know we will all remember for a very long time.  IMG 1524 Large

 On Saturday 1st April, and Sunday 2nd April, Harleen Rangisingh and Unity Fruean, both Year 11 students, represented AGGS at the Auckland Model United Nations 2017.

AMUN 2017 was attended by approximately 200 students from all around Auckland. Starting at 8.30am and finishing at 7pm; both days were fun filled with interactive workshops on public speaking and problem solving, compelling guest speakers such as Jacinda Ardern, Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, to Rez Gardi (UoA Young NZer of the year 2017). The girls also met lots of new friends, and took part in exciting competitions.
The best part of all though, was being involved in meaningful conversations with like-minded individuals, and taking part in heated debates with other students who argued from the perspective of their given country on global issues. Topics discussed and debated ranged from the decriminalization of drugs, to the impact of automation on the workforce.
