Centenary celebrations end on a high note

To mark the EGGS Centenary, 10 wonderful events took place over 5 days from 5-9 April. The events included an Official Opening and Book Launch, a glamourous Gala Dinner at the Langham and the grand finale EGGSFEST, our very own community festival which culminated in a performance of a specially commissioned piece of Centenary music by David Hamilton - one of New Zealand's most widely performed composers. The feedback from our guests - alumnae and friends - was that they have had the best 100th birthday celebration ever.

We are so proud to have celebrated 100 years of excellence in girls' education with you all. A heartfelt thanks from the Centenary Committee to all involved in the organisation of the Centenary celebrations.

Centenary Assembly

Students and staff celebrated our 100th birthday in a special assembly this morning, 100 years of excellence in girls' education. From a whole assembly selfie to a ceremonial cake cutting, there was definitely a great feeling throughout the school. The centenary assembly is a wonderful lead up to the the main celebrations in April 5-9 2017. Register today www.iticket.co.nz/go-to/eggs-centenary-events-2017 if you haven't already. EGGS opened its doors for the very first time on 12 February 1917 to only 170 students. Today we have over 2,200 students. We have so much to be proud of!
