Vietnam Collage

On 4th July, 30 students and 3 teachers set off to Vietnam for a 12 day visit of the country. We started our visit with a tour of Hanoi and learned about Vietnamese culture and legends through a water puppet show. We then visited Ha Long Bay where we took an overnight cruise to visit some of the beautiful islands there. When we returned from Ha Long Bay we took the experience that was the ‘overnight train’.

Top Awards for AGGS 'Old Girls'

Published: Wednesday, 27 June 2018 10:05

Congratulations to two of our ex-students.  Charmian O'Connor, Emeritus Professor of Chemistry was made a Dame in the Queen's Birthday Honours List for services to Education and Chemistry. 

Dame Charmian O'Connor learnt Maths and English from her mother in a small cottage as her mother juggled the duties of a provincial housewife: making butter and spinning wool. But from such humble beginnings, greatness came.

She would go on to start school two years ahead of her peers and start University aged 16, one of only 10 women in a class of hundreds.

Her mother's investment of time and energy would see O'Connor become the first girl from Auckland Girls Grammar school to study science at university and she would go on to an academic career as an assistant Vice Chancellor and Professor Emeritus at the University of Auckland. 

Jennifer Flay, was awarded a KEA Award at a gala dinner on 21 June.
