World Press Photo ExhibitionFriday, 25 July 2014 11:57
ACG English School classes, accompanied by ACG City Campus staff, went to see the very impressive and challenging photos on display at the World Press Photo Exhibition at Smith and Caughey’s in Auckland. The students worked in pairs on their excursion task sheets. They found the exhibition fascinating and were intrigued by many of the exhibits from around the world.
The students left the exhibition revitalised about their English studies and current events, and were delighted to be rewarded for their efforts in preparing for the July ACGELT with this outing.

Mr Meur, the NZIC Dean and biology teacher organised an early evening quiz for The University of Auckland Certificate in Foundation Studies fasttrack students. The event encouraged so much vocal participation that the ‘enthusiasm’ could be heard on other levels of the building. One of the groups, named Mr Nathu’s legendary moustache, achieved a creditable score but another (no names mentioned) may be detained for further learning after class for not answering two of their questions, correctly!
