My Post 15 Large

Tuesday 10 November was another wonderful day of celebrating our senior students hardwork, commitment and achievements at the end of  a year like no other.

At Prizegiving once again our students received an amazing number of scholarships and grants from Universities throughout NZ, including: 

3 University of Auckland Top Achiever Scholarships and 1 x Maori Academic Excellence scholarship - worth $20,000 each
1 x Waikato University Scholarship for outstanding academic achievement -worth $25,000
2 x University of Otago scholarships worth $10,000
5 x AUT University scholarships worth $6,500 each with the potential for renewal each year depending on results - and, this is by no means all the awards that our girls received from tertiary institutions.
In addition our students also received scholarships and grants from a number of businesses, organisations and trusts.  As always each year, thanks to the generosity of students and staff, who have gone before our girls also received significant scholarships from the Old Girls' Trust, the Old Girls' Association and the Louise Gardner Trust. 
We are extremely grateful to all the tertiary institutes, businesses, trusts, organisations and friends of our school that have rewarded our girls so handsomely and we are confident that the students that have been honoured will go on to make us all proud.

YEAR 10 STUDENTS DO THE MAHI AND BRING HOME THE TROPHY

Published: Friday, 30 October 2020 08:52

STEM1020

On Wednesday 28th October, 16 Year 10 AGGS students attended the Engineering Young Māori Minds Day. The focus of this event was for Māori students to explore and experience a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) learning environment that is fun, safe and immersed in tikanga Māori and whakawhanaungatanga. The girls worked in teams to complete STEM challenges such as building a catapult, designing and building a robotic insect and a waka that could travel on both land and water. They were competing against Māori students from other schools but AGGS was the only all girls school attending. The challenges weren’t easy, requiring problem solving, creativity, perseverance and lots of cooperation and teamwork.

The girls loved every part of the day, especially the prizegiving at the end, where AGGS was presented with the first place trophy. Tino pai rawa atu!
