Founding Day Assembly

Published: Thursday, 22 September 2022 13:33

We hosted our Founding Day Assembly and honoured three of our past students; Pippa Coom Corin Merrick and Alistar Kata. We also congratulated four current students with a scholarship.
 
Our first Founding Day was celebrated in 1992, when the school took up a suggestion from the Old Girls’ Association that each year we should honour some of our ‘Old Girls’ who have gone on to
make significant contributions to their community or in their field of work after they have left school.
 
At the same time the Old Girls’ Association offered to provide a scholarship to senior students from each year level based on the criteria of achievement, service and all round contribution to school life.
 
Since 1992, several of the students who received Founding Day Awards while they were at school have returned to school to be honoured as high achieving adults.
 

WHINA Played To A Sold Out Crowd

Published: Thursday, 25 August 2022 10:10

 
WHINA played to a sold out crowd of students, staff and their whanau.
 
The amazing and talented Miriama McDowell who played younger Whina hosted a Q & A session for the guests and we loved hearing her experience on set and her time as a student at AGGS.
 
Our Ngā Tūmanako o Kahurangi girls stood and sang two verses of our mōteatea that pays tribute to our kui from Te Whina - Aue e Whina.
 
Thank you to all that joined us, you made the evening.

We are excited to host an evening at the movies!

Our students turned all shades of pink as they got behind Pink Shirt Day this year!  A big thank you to the Health & Wellbeing and Social Sciences & Services Student Committees who did a fantastic job in organising
the day's activities for students to participate in.  It was lovely to see the students participate in Pink Shirt Day as they demonstrated their support for the cause: Speak Up, Stand Together, Stop Bullying!
