Service Lions Ceremony 2020

By November 5, 2020Service

The Service Lions of 2020 were awarded on November 4 to 102 well-deserving students at a Special Assembly in the F.W. Gamble Hall.
MCs for the event were Deputy Head Girl Ronette va’ai and Flynn Lakeman, who introduced guest speaker Ben Greenwood, an Albertian and Revo Tour director. Revo Tour, which focuses on teenagers’ physical and mental wellbeing, has conducted activations at MAGS that have involved basketball and dancing competitions among other activities.
Mr Greenwood spoke about the small acts of kindness that could make someone’s day or even change their lives. He said he was having a tough time at high school until someone extended the hand of friendship to him.
The theme of his speech was ‘You make a living by what you get, but you make a life by what you give’. He said that giving and helping others would – above all other things – see students living a fulfilling and happy life.
A Service Lion is awarded to those students who have served the school and the wider community for a sustained period of time.
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 read by Mr Cave and presented by Headmaster Patrick Drumm and Mr Greenwood.
As a musical interlude, the Gloriana Girls Choir performed Gloria Festiva, conducted by Dr Atchison.
