Sarah from Auckland

Sarah McKenzie, Auckland

Hi, my name is Sarah McKenzie. I have lived in Central Auckland for most of my life and came to Mount Roskill after having been to Royal Oak Primary and Auckland Normal Intermediate. My older brother is an ex-pupil of MRGS and is now studying law at university. We have truly become a part of the Mount Roskill community over the years.

I’ve loved being a part of the MRGS family, it has offered me so many interesting and challenging opportunities including playing football for the first XI, being involved in our production of Beauty and the Beast, leading the Ngata House committee and travelling to France for three weeks as a part of a languages exchange, among others.

The teachers and other staff at MRGS are extremely talented in their fields, as shown by our outstanding academic results, and I’ve been able to reach my full potential thanks to all their work and support. 

Mount Roskill is one of the most diverse areas in Auckland and I’ve learned so much about other cultures and traditions while being at the school, forming lifelong friendships in the process.
