COVID-19 Update (24 April 2020)

Dear Parents

As we draw the week to a close, Form 4 – 7 students should have completed their Term 1 examinations and started to self-mark their papers so they can identify and correct gaps in their learning. Using the examination marking schedules provided to them to assess their own performance is a key part of this process, otherwise they simply will not know the area/s in each of their subjects that require more of their time and attention in the coming days and weeks.  

Form 3 students should have completed two days of revision of their Term 1 studies.  This is the work they will be assessed on in their examinations after they have returned to campus.  They will be given prior warning once back on campus of the dates for these examinations and reissued with a new examination timetable at that time.

On-line Lessons

On-line lessons will resume from Tuesday 28 April for all year levels.  I do advise students to get back into healthy routines.  From Tuesday, this should include being up and ready to follow his timetable each day so that he can complete his scheduled lessons and in some instances be able to ask questions during the time of his normal lesson.

 Do remember:

  • Daily notices will appear on your son’s GrammarNet page each day from this Thursday. He must read these in order to be well-informed about the School’s operations and expectations.
  • It is important that your son completes the work in prescribed fashion.  We do not want any young man to fall behind with his studies in these uncertain times.
  • While your son’s teachers will communicate with you if they identify concerns, do contact us via your son’s teachers or Year Level Dean if you have immediate questions or concerns about his studies or his welfare.

ANZAC Day

Tomorrow, as a country we will remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, serving their country.  For the first time since the unveiling of Auckland Grammar School’s War Memorial in 1922 we will not be able to physically gather on campus to share an ANZAC Service.

We will, however, remember the 662 Old Boys who gave their lives in WWI or WWII.  Tomorrow, on our website www.ags.school.nz and on our social media platforms we will be sharing with you a video tribute and a 15-minute ANZAC Service that will include addresses by the Head Prefect, Michael Hiddleston, and Prefect, Cody Dalton.  

The Old Boys’ Association and the School have both arranged for wreaths to be laid at the foot of the War Memorial.  

Lest we forget.
