The Principal, Mr Haines, was walking around the City Campus when he noticed Supasuta using her iPad to contact her grandmother on Skype during a free period. Being able to talk with her Grandma and see her face is a great comfort to both the student and family. Grandma’s face says it all! Supasuta joined the English School at the start of 2013 and recently promoted to ACG Norton College for Extended Foundation.

Are we ‘in tune’ with the needs of our students? Do we regularly rise to the challenge and reflect on our teaching practice? Do we use the increasing range of tools and techniques available to manage change in our classrooms? Do teachers and support staff work together to promote student engagement, critical thinking and student success in their studies?

ACG City Campus was abuzz with the 2012 Olympics. Flags from the representative countries of our students decorated the main entrance and triggered discussion as well as that wonderful healthy sense of competition, which is such an integral part of everything that happens at 345 Queen Street. Miss Jowett spotted Miss Kinnell and her English students under the flags in the foyer working on an 'Olympic' activity. They were happy to pose for a photo shoot. Just like all 'Olympians', these students are working to be the very best at what they do, and are studying hard to achieve their goals and dreams.

A group of ACG City Campus students met Mr. and Mrs. Hodges at Devonport ferry terminal on Saturday August, 25 for a guided tour of the area. The sun was shining as the group walked along the sea front to visit the Naval Museum at Torpedo Bay. After, they headed to North Head where they had an excellent view of Auckland City and the Gulf, and learned some interesting details about the tunnels, which honeycomb North Head. The group proceeded to Cheltenham Beach, where the students were introduced to some good old Kiwi 'summer' sport.

Mrs Kinnell and Mrs Ottaway accompanied 19 English School students to the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition, co-owned by the Natural History Museum and Wildlife magazine at the Auckland Museum on 24 August. The group took advantage of the sunshine and walked to the Museum by way of the Grafton Bridge and Domain. The students really enjoyed seeing the beautiful photos of animals in their natural environments, photos that have been exhibited around the world.

Toward the end of Term One ACG City Campus held an International Cultural Dress Day. Staff and students entered into the spirit of the day dressing in costumes appropriate to their country of origin and culture. John (Aussie) Matthews was easy to tell in his corker hat as was Michael (Mc) Graham in his kilt. Phil (Westie) Morris was also easily identifiable kitted out totally in black and Safari Man Jacques September looked like the only thing he was missing was a rifle (or camera to be more PC). A day of lots of smiles from staff and students.
