Cast Glass installation
by Ann Gilbert - Monday, 11 December 2017, 8:45 AM

Every year the Year 13s give something to the school as their leaving gift.  This year, helped out by a small Art endowment fund we have access to, they have purchased a cast glass installation which has now been installed near the student office. The panels were cast by Ainsley O'Connell an Architecture lecturer at AUT in Auckland and are based on a traditional Pasifika design. Thanks to the students for this lovely gift.
