High School

What were your high school colors? Team names? Clubs you belong too? Did you graduate? What do you remember most about your graduation day?

I went to St margaret's College for my high school years. Their colour was green but if you did really well at sports you got to wear a "colours" blazer that was red.

Of course New Zealand is different from the US & basically all out teams were just called St Margaret's. I played netball from 3rd form (year 9) until 6th form (year 12) when I ripped my anterior cruciate ligament. I haven't been able to play netball since. In 5th form (year 11) I became a school librarian & retained that position until I left. In my last year (year 13) I was Head Librarian & also Head Sacristan.

We don't really do graduation ceremonies from high school, that is really only for University (I think that is College in the US). Yes I did stay at my high school until the end & did well enough that I was granted entrance to university, from which I did graduate with a Bachelor of Commerce.

I love to learn how different school systems work in different countries. This was so interesting and different than ours here in the US.
