Alumni Oliver Brown, providing more opportunities of community service for his '12 Hours in 2012' participants, led a group to Motutapu Island recently. He reports:
"On 6th August a group of 29 ACG Parnell College students, parents and alumni when to Motutapu to participate in some tree planting! The group broke up into pairs with each planting 20 to 35 trees each. Following the tree planting, we walked through an area of Motutapu which had trees that had been planted 15 years ago - a walk which allowed us to understand what our trees would look like in just a few years' time."

The message below is from Mr Belcher, the driver of the 7:00am OuterLink Bus in the Mt. Eden / Greenlane area. He writes:
"I would like to pass on the fact that you have some of the most courteous, cheerful and well-presented students I have ever had to carry. They are always so friendly with a 'good morning' and 'have a good day' to me."

For Libby Jespersen, choosing a school outside the local area has had fewer hurdles than she thought. While she and her family love living in Devonport, it is also an excellent gateway to the city. Libby started at ACG Parnell in Year 7.
She walks from home to catch the 7:30am ferry into town, and then catches the awaiting bus and is at school by 8am. She does the same on the way home.
She says "Catching the ferry and bus works really well and I actually enjoy the trip. It's worth it because ACG Parnell College suits me so well as a student."
