AGGS Founding Day 2018

Recipients with Ngaire                                                                                                             l to r Dinah Vaiaogo-Ioasa, Charmaine Pountney and Vivienne Brynner with Principal, Ngaire Ashmore 

Each year since 1992 at a special assembly we have honoured three women who have a special connection with our school.  This is an opportunity for us to recognise the achievements of these women and for them in turn to inspire and encourage our current students to work hard so that they too can fulfill their dreams and ambitions.   This year as we celebrate the 130th anniversary of our school, our recipients were, ex-Principal Charmaine Pountney NZOM;  Charmaine was awarded the NZ Suffrage Medal in 1993 for her services to women and she was made a Companion of the NZ Order of Merit in 2002 for her services to education and the community.  At the ceremony Charmaine presented these medals to the school.

EDENcampusLOGO

buildingEden Campus is situated in the heart of Mt Eden at 16 Ngauruhoe St. We welcome Year 9-13 students who are pregnant or who are teen-parents wanting to continue or resume their secondary education. A vibrant child care centre run by the Further Chance Charitable Trust operates on site. 

researchAll students have their own individual learning plan. Most subjects are studied through Te Kura - the Correspondence School, but students are fully supported by specialist subject teachers who work closely with them to achieve at their own pace. Flexibility allows students who complete an NCEA level in one subject during the year to move on quickly to the next level without having to wait for a new school year.

Apart from Te Kura subjects many other courses are available to students, such as parenting, budgeting, first aid, outdoor education and hospitality. Most of these offer the opportunity of gaining NCEA credits.

Eden Campus is licensed to enrol 30 students and 30 children. It is close to public amenities and transport. A school van operates in the afternoon to help students make connections with buses and trains in the central city.

table talkAt Eden Campus we believe that being a teen-parent should not put a stop to education. We have high expectations for all our students and we provide a supportive and nurturing environment where young mothers and their babies can flourish.

Vietnam July 2018

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’. This is something  I’m certain none of us will ever forget, being furiously rocked to sleep as the train hurtled through the countryside, taking us to the stunning landscapes of central Vietnam.
