i Centre - Auckland Girls Grammar School

     

icentre01"As we increasingly move toward an environment of instant and infinite information, it becomes less important for students to know, memorise or recall information, and more important for them to be able to find, sort, analyse, share, discuss, critique and create information. They need to move from being simply knowledgeable to being knowledge-able." Wesch

Our i-Centre (Information Centre) is a specially designed, furnished and equipped Learning Commons, which caters for todays 'new learners'. Young women, who use multiple technologies 'on demand', expect to have access to electronic information quickly and easily. Most have never known a world where this wasn't possible. They embrace new technologies readily and transfer their skill with one technology to each new technology. They are comfortable learning informally with their peers as the technology brings them together socially.


icentre02Our i-Centre, which incorporates our school library, our Careers Centre and a number of smaller multi-purpose rooms, as well as a large flexible central area has been designed as a physical and virtual space to accommodate our 21st century learners, both students and staff.

Sapere Aude

Sapere Aude is our group for students who demonstrate high potential in terms of their academic, cultural, artistic and leadership abilities. "Sapere Aude" is Latin for 'Dare to be Wise.' The group meets regularly to meet and exchange ideas, receive support and mentoring, discuss their learning and take part in enrichment and extension opportunities.

Cafeteria

We have a Cafeteria at Auckland Girls.  Both hot and cold food and beverages are available at breakfast, recess and lunch times.  The Cafeteria is open from 8am each day.  We endeavour to promote a healthy menu for our students and encourage girls to take advantage of a reasonably priced healthy option.
