Abbie Mortimer, Sports Captain 2019

"Tauranga Girls’ College is a place of abundant opportunities. Students are encouraged to embrace these and to strive to reach their full potential. With over 30 sports available to participate in, there is no shortage of chances to discover one that fits your niche and enables you to flourish. Whilst also keeping you fit, sports allows students to implement the school values of Manaakitanga; Respect, Mahi Tahi; Participation, and Mana Motuhake; Pride. Both within Tauranga Girls’ College and outside in the community, with the sport this school has made available, I have found a sense of belonging and formed memories that I will cherish forever. With new possibilities everyday, Tauranga Girls’ College provides the ideal environment for maximising potential."
