2018 is a milestone for the First Foundation as it celebrates its 20th year.  The First Foundation is a four year tertiary scholarship model – which provides the following:

Financial assistance:  $12,000 towards tertiary costs

Mentoring: The Mentors role is to assist students through the major transition from school to university.

Work Experience: Provides a minimum of 4-5 weeks paid work experience per year. Allows students to develop skills in safe work environment and build new networks.

 At the First Foundation Awards Ceremony on 13th February AGGS students were awarded 5 Scholarships.  Out of the 31 scholarships awarded to Auckland students, AGGS had the highest number awarded to one school.

We are very proud of our achievement as competition for these scholarships is very keen and each student went through a rigorous interview process and in most cases was the only student selected by the sponsor.  The scholarships were awarded to:

Selu-Kian Faletoese        Year 13 sponsor: Sky City.
Selu-Kian was chosen to give the thank you speech on behalf of the successful Scholarship students and did a fantastic job of it. She is one of our Deputy Head Girls this year.
