choir websiteOur 57 member AGGS Choir made a ‘wonderful noise’ at the Big Sing on 15 June. The Big Sing is a three day event where over 3,000 students from schools throughout the Auckland region come together to sing, share fellowship with each other and compete in a number of categories. After a 16 year absence from the competition the AGGS Choir was back stronger than ever. In the competition section the girls sang a new arrangement of Ave Maria; the spiritual, Bring Me Little Water Sylvie, and the AGGS waiata He Wahine. We are delighted to report that at the end of the competition, the AGGS Choir was awarded Runner Up for their Performance in the NZ Category for He Wahine. The award is given to a choir that has not participated in the National Finale for the last two years.

Untitled 1ON 13 March on the banks of the mighty Lake Pupuke, twenty six of AGGS ‘keenest’ met at sparrows pip in the interests of dominating the Auckland Dragon Boating regatta. A 7:30am meeting time meant that some girls were on the road well before 6am. It truly is a marathon undertaking and a big thank you to all the parents and staff who turned up to support the girls.
