Service Lions Ceremony 2019

By October 18, 2019Service

The Service Lions of 2019 were awarded today to 69 well-deserving students at a Special Assembly in the F.W. Gamble Hall.
Before proceedings got underway, Headmaster Patrick Drumm called Brian Murphy up and he received a standing ovation for his 60 years of service to MAGS.
MCs for the event were Theresa Anisi and Deputy Head Boy Oscar Graham, who introduced guest speaker Tiff McLeod.
Ms McLeod, is a Cure Kids Ambassador and became involved with the charity because her daughter Eva was born with a hole in her diaphragm that meant Eva spent her first four years of life living in Starship Hospital.
She said Cure Kids, a health research charity, gave her hope that Eva could live a full life and so she decided to give back by working for Cure Kids as well helping Starship Hospital and Ronald McDonald House.
Ms McLeod, who was was awarded a Local Hero award for her work in the community, said the greatest gift we had was being able to give, and we should all try to leave the world a better place.
Students were awarded the Lions for services to the Performing Arts, Visual Arts, the Library, Technology, Pasifika, School House, and the wider school community. They were presented by Headmaster Patrick Drumm and Ms McLeod.
As a musical interlude, pianist Kitty Mu played Chopin’s Etude Opus No.12 in C Minor.
