Mount Albert Grammar School will open its first boarding facility for girl students in 2018.
The school has acquired a former rest home in nearby Lloyd Avenue, Mount Albert, and will spend 2017 renovating it in preparation for its first intake of up to 30 girls. They will be a mix of New Zealand and International students.
Headmaster Mr Patrick Drumm said the school had run a boarding hostel for boys for the past 90 years, and the new facility enabled the school to provide equal opportunity for girls from outside its zone to attend Mount Albert Grammar.
“MAGS has a long history of offering our quality education to boy students from throughout the North Island. Now their sisters, and the daughters of former students, will have the opportunity to also board with us,” said Mr Drumm.
More information about the hostel and the application process will be posted here as it comes to hand.
Enquiries about the Girls’ Hostel should be emailed to MAGS’ Business Manager Ms Debbie Forsyth at email@example.com
