GEORGIA is an outstanding STEM subject student from Woodford House in Havelock North & has been accepted to the University of Auckland Engineering School. At high school Georgia was into everything! The “short list” includes: manager of the school’s Global Committee and Festival of Cultures team, co-head of the Innovation Committee, organiser of the Servant Leadership day, mentor in the Student Wellbeing programme, school librarian, & hospice volunteer. In her “spare time” Georgia was also captain of the school soccer team & a Hawkes Bay representative player. Georgia is also very musical! She can play “almost” any instrument and is a master on the drums. She plays in a rock band that is in high demand for events at school & the wider community. Georgia has also lead the way for LGBTI+ rights at her strict Anglican high school, and attended the school ball with her girl-friend (a first for Woodford!) where they won CUTEST COUPLE!.. Georgia won the Aurecon Scholarship – the first from Aurecon who also became Rainbow Tick Acredited just before the presentation.
