Celebrating 150 years of Auckland Grammar School in 2019. Per Angusta Ad Augusta.
Next week, Auckland Grammar School will celebrate its 150th anniversary. From Thursday 16 - Friday 24 May 2019, students and staff past and present, parents, Old Boys and members of the wider community will partake in over 20 events. From reunions to assemblies, sports games to musical performances and culminating in our Celebration Dinner on Friday 24 May, there is something for everyone.
Headmaster Mr Tim O'Connor spoke with past parent Jude Dobson about what it means to be the Headmaster at Auckland Grammar during the 150th celebrations and how the School is all-inclusive of every member of the community.
Our founding partners and associated sponsors have provided incredible financial backing and pro bono support, so we can host a myriad of activities around the School's actual birthday on Friday 17 May 2019.
A number of events have already sold out, so we urge you to register today. If you are travelling from out of Auckland or overseas, we have a couple of fantastic opportunities for discounted accommodation.
