ASB Polyfest has been cancelled

Published: Monday, 16 March 2020 15:35

Official Update from The Polyfest Trust - 16 March 2020


New Zealand's position to proactively stop any further spread of COVD-19 has changed gears and we are expecting that restrictions on mass and public gatherings will be announced in the next few days.  We have made it clear that any decision to cancel ASB Polyfest would require a directive from the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education.

 The Polyfest Trust has met with its key stakeholders today to consider all the information provided by these agencies and agree that our event must be cancelled in the best interest of current public health advice.

Although an official statement from Government regarding mass and public gatherings is expected soon, we want to give people as much notice as possible so other arrangements can be made. This includes looking at options which will allow student performers to submit their performances for judging as well as fulfil assessment obligations in relation to NCEA credits. We will be working closely with stage co-ordinators and schools on how we can best accommodate this.

Special congratulations to our AGGS Gold team which came first in the Championship final of both the 500 metres and the 250 metres races.

AGGS Students off to Silicon Valley

Published: Tuesday, 10 March 2020 15:53

Amazing news. Two AGGS Pūhoro students have been selected to attend the 2020 Āmua Ao overseas experience to Silicon Valley and San Francisco in April. The tauira on this trip will be exposed to overseas companies and gain an understanding of the indigenous people of the area. The experience will also help build their leadership skills and expand their horizons as to what is possible as Māori and global citizens of the world.

Congratulations Kahlia Pai and Jessica Jerry!

Pūhoro STEM Academy was launched in 2016 and is an exciting transformative programme aimed at advancing Māori leadership and capability to deliver a world class science community. The programme works directly with secondary school students and their whānau across the country. It provides students and whānau with mentoring, tutoring, wānanga (experiential learning/field trips) within culturally appropriate settings to help them navigate career pathways into science and technology related industries.

Lock Down Exercise

Published: Tuesday, 10 March 2020 09:44

We have completed our lock down exercise and all students, staff and persons on-site are safely accounted for.  Everyone did extremely well and responded to instructions.  A notice will be going out to parents/caregivers tonight to provide some more information about our emergency lock down procedures.

We will be sending a notice/email out tonight providing information on what has occurred today.  I would like to personally thank you for your support while we conduct these practices.  Kind regards – Ngaire Ashmore, Principal 



Scholarship Examination Results 2019

Published: Tuesday, 11 February 2020 10:32

New Zealand Scholarship is designed to extend the very best students and to financially reward very able students who are going on to tertiary study.

Scholarship candidates are expected to demonstrate high-level critical thinking, abstraction and generalisation, and to integrate, synthesise and apply knowledge, skills, understanding, and ideas to complex situations.

We are delighted that last year Auckland Girls' students were awarded 5 scholarships

Junior Science Expo

Science Expo

At the end of Term 4, our Year 9 and 10 students had a few wonderful opportunities to sample some of the areas of work and study that they might want to pursue when they leave school.  They spent a whole day getting a taste of University life at the University of Auckland;  where our Year 9 girls considered 'Why Languages Matter' and our Year 10 students attended a range of lectures in the Humanities and Mathematics Departments. 
We also held a very successful interactive Science and Careers Expo in our Study Hall.
