St Margaret's College student Aimee Taylor has been awarded a $28,000 scholarship to the International College of Hotel Management (ICHM) in South Australia, to study for a Bachelor of Business (Hospitality Management) and Bachelor of International Hotel Management (Swiss Hotel Association). Aimee was the only New Zealander to receive one of the five scholarships awarded by ICHM throughout Australia and New Zealand.
ACG Sunderland’s primary school production ‘For the Birds!’ wrapped up last week, raising more than $1,000 for NZ Forest and Bird.
The novel, bird-themed production was devised by music teacher Dan O’Connor, who transformed well-known Kiwi books and music into a musical production involving almost 120 primary school children from preschool to Year 5. Props, scenery and costumes were all made from recycled or re-used materials.
