Recollect website launch of TGS History

Virtual Update of TGS Main Block


With the TGS main block now unwrapped and the iconic building once again the centrepiece of the school, we had been planning an Open Day for our current families, our past students and our community to enable everyone to check out the “new” school.

Friday 22 May 2020 was to have been the official opening of the building but due to COVID-19, the official opening has been postponed. Our students have resumed classes in the building and we are hopeful that we will have the opportunity later this year for our community to visit and see these halls and the site for themselves. We know there is a lot of interest from our TGS community in getting reacquainted with this key part of our shared history.

New Recollect TGS site:

Please click here to visit the new Recollect TGS site in public mode. When you visit you can register with Recollect TGS. You can then enjoy the rich history of the school, take a virtual tour of today’s refurbished school, and view future development plans for the school.

In lieu of a physical tour, the new TGS Recollect site, is providing a virtual tour of the work that has been done to the building along with the lesser-known infrastructure work that has also been underway - from new outdoor basketball courts to major classroom fitouts to resurfacing of the tennis, hockey and netball facilities and more.

We look forward to when we can finally invite you to the school to show you around both the new facilities and through the parts that continue to connect each of us so tangibly to Takapuna Grammar School’s proud near 100-year history. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy hearing about the aspirations for the school’s facilities and environment and looking through the photos of the school as it stands today.

Ngā mihi,

Mary Nixon
