Dr Tania Ka'ai has been contracted by the Board of Trustees to undertake a review of Ngā Tūmanako o Kahurangi. We extend an invitation to all past Kahurangi students to complete this survey. The purpose of the review is to understand the place of Kahurangi inside Auckland Girls Grammar School, and:

• To understand Kahurangi’s historical significance from its establishment 30 years ago, in order to raise and ensure high student achievement outcomes; and
• To understand Kahurangi’s relevance in contemporary times and what changes need to be made to make it relevant and ensure high student achievement outcomes.

The survey will take approximately 5 minutes to complete. Your participation is voluntary and completely anonymous. The closing date for completing the survey is Tuesday 5 December.

If you wish to take part in the survey, copy and paste the url into your browser https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/KTWTQB3

In 2018 our Year 13 students will be wearing school uniform.  Our Year 13 students are our student leaders and a uniform will  clearly identify them as such. 

The only change to our current uniform for our Year 13 girls to our other students will be a different blouse and a tie.  Pictured below:
