Each year since 1992 at a special assembly we have honoured three women who have a special connection with our school. This is an opportunity for us to recognise the achievements of these women and for them in turn to inspire and encourage our current students to work hard so that they too can fulfill their dreams and ambitions. This year as we celebrate the 130th anniversary of our school, our recipients were, ex-Principal Charmaine Pountney NZOM; Charmaine was awarded the NZ Suffrage Medal in 1993 for her services to women and she was made a Companion of the NZ Order of Merit in 2002 for her services to education and the community. At the ceremony Charmaine presented these medals to the school.
