Obituary – Daniel Aliaga ’93

Obituary - Daniel Aliaga

Daniel Aliaga ’93 passed away on the last day of Term 3 after a courageous battle fighting cancer. The School has extended its support and sympathies to Daniel’s wife and their wider family on behalf of the staff, students and the Board. 

Daniel was a dedicated teacher of Chemistry at Auckland Grammar School, beginning at the start of the 2020 academic year. Teaching across the dual qualification pathway, his contributions within the department and faculty were appreciated by colleagues and students alike.

Daniel also had a passion for Football, having played for the 1st XI team while at Grammar as a student. As a staff member, he continued his support of Football through coaching the 2nd and 3rd XI teams, then assisting the 1st XI this year. He also supported Social Tennis and the Tuakana Teina programme.

Auckland Grammar School extends its deepest sympathies to Daniel’s family and friends.

As a mark of respect for the lives and contributions of Daniel and Professor Richie Poulton ’76, the flag on top of the Main Block will remain at half-mast today (Monday 9 October).
