Polyfest 2023

Published: Wednesday, 29 March 2023 13:05

Preparation time for Polyfest 2023 was a lot tighter than usual, but AGGS still managed to come home with some impressive results, including wins on the Tongan, Niuean and Cook Island stages, and a placing on the Diversity stage. Congratulations to all students who took part in Polyfest this year, we are so proud of you all. A huge thank you to all the staff and tutors for all the work you have put in, and a special thanks to our fabulous Polyfest Coordinator, Lilly Stowers.



Athletics Day 2023

Published: Tuesday, 28 February 2023 12:56

The AGGS Athletics Day was a huge success for our students this year. With Mt Smart out of action, we opted to head out to Massey Park in Papakura and it was well-attended by our students and was a perfect fit for our school.

Each tutor class was assigned a maunga and a colour, with regular chants practice leading up to the event. Every student who participated in an event received points for their maunga and by the end of the day, the winner with the most points was Maungawhau!

Congratulations to all involved and we look forward to AGGS representing at the upcoming central-east-west athletics zones later in March.

Welcome to 2023 at AGGS

Senior Prizegiving 2022

Published: Thursday, 01 December 2022 14:31

It was wonderful to celebrate academic achievement at our senior prizegiving on the 2nd of November, being unable due to covid to do this for 2 years.

The DWC was full of excited and proud students and whānau as well as many special guests including politicians, Old Girls’ and representatives from universities.

More than 150 Year 11, 12 and 13 students were recognised for Academic Excellence and 40 Year 13 students received grants or scholarships, many of them to support or pay for tertiary studies. 

The top award at any Prize Giving is the Dux and Proxime Accessit, or runner up to the Dux.

This year the Proxime Accessit is Lynelle Mendonca, and the Dux is Husna Nazari. Congratulations to everyone.

Year 13 Alumni Pin Ceremony

Published: Wednesday, 09 November 2022 09:19

We honoured our Year 13 leavers with a special alumni pin ceremony in the Study Hall. Year 13 students entered the Study Hall through a guard of honour made up of Year 12 students to a rousing welcome from Ngā Tūmunako o Kahurangi.  Following a welcoming address by the Principal, Ms. Ashmore, Heather Ash, Chair of the AGGS Foundation addressed the students telling them a little about her time at school and her memories, Ms Ash was Head Girl in 1971.  Then with Year 11 and 12 students looking on from the balcony and main stairs, each Year 13 student went up to the podium to receive congratulations from Ms Ashmore and Foundation members and an Alumni pin.   The ceremony ended with the singing of the school song and haka, followed by morning tea for Year 13 in the Staffroom. All Year 13 students have been invited to register for the AGGS Community website where they can continue to keep in touch with their old school.
