Vietnam Collage

On 4th July, 30 students and 3 teachers set off to Vietnam for a 12 day visit of the country. We started our visit with a tour of Hanoi and learned about Vietnamese culture and legends through a water puppet show. We then visited Ha Long Bay where we took an overnight cruise to visit some of the beautiful islands there. When we returned from Ha Long Bay we took the experience that was the ‘overnight train’. This is something  I’m certain none of us will ever forget, being furiously rocked to sleep as the train hurtled through the countryside, taking us to the stunning landscapes of central Vietnam.

Top Awards for AGGS 'Old Girls'

Published: Wednesday, 27 June 2018 10:05

Congratulations to two of our ex-students.  Charmian O'Connor, Emeritus Professor of Chemistry was made a Dame in the Queen's Birthday Honours List for services to Education and Chemistry. 

Dame Charmian O'Connor learnt Maths and English from her mother in a small cottage as her mother juggled the duties of a provincial housewife: making butter and spinning wool. But from such humble beginnings, greatness came.

She would go on to start school two years ahead of her peers and start University aged 16, one of only 10 women in a class of hundreds.

Her mother's investment of time and energy would see O'Connor become the first girl from Auckland Girls Grammar school to study science at university and she would go on to an academic career as an assistant Vice Chancellor and Professor Emeritus at the University of Auckland. 

Jennifer Flay, was awarded a KEA Award at a gala dinner on 21 June. The award recognises 'Kiwi High Flyers'.  Jennifer is the general director of the FIAC one of the most prestigious and infludntial art fairs worldwide; each year the event attracts more than 240 exhibitors and result in millions of dollars in sale.  Jennifer was awarded the French Legion of Honour (France's highest award) in 2015.  

PUHORO STEM PROGRAMME

Puhoro STEM COLLAGE

Providing young Māori secondary school students the chance to experience and pursue careers in science.

Participating in the program, Auckland Grammar Girls School student Heeni Blakey (Tuwharetoa) says, “There aren't many Māori kids in science and there are less girls, and I think this has opened a pathway for me to get into science.

Students from 11 Auckland schools met at Massey's Auckland campus in Albany for an interactive field trip which explores hands on science linked to their NCEA study.

This is a new experience, I haven't learnt these things at school so it's good to come here to the institute,” says Blakey.
