GETTING TO SCHOOL_______________________________ As an Inner City School Auckland Girls' Grammar School is well serviced by public buses from all parts of Auckland. Students who catch buses, which do not run along K'Road get off at Symonds Street and walk to school (approximately 12 minutes). There is also a connecting bus (number 106) from the Downtown Railway Station to the School. AUCKLAND TRANSPORT BUSES BUS No. 106 FROM BRITOMART RAILWAY STATION The 106 bus leaves from the corner lower Queen Street & Customs Street West, outside the ANZ Bank. Bus stop number is 7015.

DEVICES We highly recommend that all students have a suitable device such as a Chrome book or Laptop to use in class. Activities in class will often involve use of a device to keep notes, collaborate and access online resources. There are a wide range of advantages to students bringing their own devices to use in class. Most obviously, online access allows students to connect with an unlimited selection of resources.

COUNSELLING AND SOCIAL WORK The Counselling Centre aims to positively impact the well being of students by building resilience and connectedness for learning. This includes providing confidential support and referral for a range of emotional, social or behavioural needs (e.g. mental health, family stress, academic stress, change, loss and grief, friends and relationships, sexuality and identity, drugs and alcohol, anger management and parenting support). The SWIS (Social Worker in Schools) is able to work with students and their families/whānau to help protect vulnerable students and develop plans to improve student safety, wellbeing and educational goals. By supporting families with the educational journey while at Auckland Girls’ Grammar school we are able to achieve better outcomes for students. Students can self-refer directly at the Counselling Centre or by email. Staff and parents can refer in person, by phone or via email. Teachers, at times, will also refer concerns directly to the Counselling Centre.
