Alena Jefferson and Zenobia Tikoisuva created this documentary film as part of their Year 13 Media Studies class.
This work is worth valuable credits towards NCEA Level 3, while also providing an opportunity to create a piece of art that they can share with the class, whanau and the wider school community. This film is a look at the Niuean cultural tradition, Hifiulu. In normal circumstances, this event would have been a mass gathering of family and friends coming together to celebrate Alena's brother, Malachi Jefferson, and his traditional haircutting ceremony. Given the disruption of Covid-19, the family had to be creative and flexible in order to maintain this valued cultural tradition, while also meeting the health and safety requirements of living during a global pandemic.
Thanks to the Jefferson family for allowing us to share their story.'

We are looking forward to welcoming all our students back to school at 8.50 am on Monday 31 August.
Our priority will be the well being of our girls. We know we are prepared for our students’ safe return to school and we are confident the systems and processes we have in place will ensure everyone’s safety.
We do want students and staff to enjoy being together and taking part in all those areas of school life they have been missing out on; we will however be doing so in a considered way until we can return to Level 1. We know that we are all in this together and we will be asking everyone to take responsibility for their personal hygiene and their social distancing practices.
We will have alcohol-based hand sanitisers in every classroom, office and room in the school along with signage to ensure that students and staff have the information they require to keep safe.
Our school bus will be up and running again from Monday, with extra safety and hygiene measures in place. The Government has announced that masks/face coverings must be worn on public transport at Alert Level 2. Students who use our school bus are also encouraged to wear masks, although it is not mandatory on the school's chartered school bus.

The Government has announced that Auckland will remain in lockdown for a further 12 days until midnight on Wednesday 26 August. This means that for most students online learning will continue. The daughters of essential workers can however continue to come to school, where they will be supervised while they work on the online learning programme which will be provided to all students.
Our Open Day and Information Evening which were due to be held on 26 August have been postponed. As soon as a new date is possible and decided we will promote this.
All school sport is also cancelled during the lockdown and our celebratory AGGStraordiary week, due to be held next week, which we were all so looking forward to has also been postponed.
While the return to lockdown is disapponting we know that it is necessary and we encourage you all to follow Government advice, stay safe and look after each other - per angusta ad augusta.
