Voting day

On Tuesday 12 and Wednesday September all of our students went to the polls to cast their vote in a Mock Election run by TIC Social Studies Etomia Wilson and the Social Science committee.

The girls have been discussing in Social Studies the policies and promises of the various candidates and parties in the Auckland Central Electorate and on 12 and 13 September, in circumstances very similar to what their parents and whanau will vote in on Election Day, 23 September, they cast their votes. 

This, we believe is an essential part of growing good citizens, who are interested and involved.

Basketball CollageOn 25 August both our Under 17 and Premier Basketball teams competed in the finals of the Auckland Secondary Schools Basketball Competition.   Congratulations to both teams, who came from behind,  in two nail biting finishes, to win their games against Massey High School and Mt Albert Grammar School respectively, and take out the title of 2017 Auckland Champions in their respective grades.   The Premier Basketball team will now go onto compete in the Regional Championship and from there, if successful, the National Secondary School Championship in the October school holidays.   Earlier in the week our Rugby League teams were the winners of the Rugby League Shield in the Rugby League Girls Auckland Tournament held at Cornwall Park. Another great day for AGGS Sport.   
The score board in the Prem Basketball finals tells some of the story.
