I was only at Sacred Heart for 1 year. My final year 7th form actually. I loved Sacred Heart it taught me the values in life I hold strongly to this day. Ally Gibbons was an amazing Principal an others I know agree also. Go you keep it up!!!
She was an awesome awesome pricipal, was like fully a ligit principal. well i liked her anyway:) wish she could see me through all my years because honest , she was the best:) All those bad comments, dont know what your talking about, Fully got your back, Mrs, use to think you were mean but , fully miss your presence around school, you, Mrs Cargo and Mrs Paiti, Come back , Sacred Heart needs you!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
A great principal and a great school and a great ERO report. Go SH and congrats Mrs Gibbons
love her great principal!!It is sad how some girls are so negative. It reflects more about them and their attitude, GO SHGC a great school.
I am a new student this year and I think that it is a really neat school. At my last school we never saw the principal, but Mrs Gibbons is everywhere that makes a big difference.
for the dear person who thought the votes were rigd..it sounds more to me like your one jealous person!!..mrs gibbons is a great principal and why do you even care about the seating arrangements when you get to sit in the common room??..please you nedd to stop feeling sorry for yourself and MOVE ON! and people would only be stupid if they voted for you!
IIt is great being in Year 13. I ike how students stand back for us as they do for the Teachers thanks for that rule Mrs Gibbons I love the whole RESPECT THEME.Also this year the Teachers treat you differently too - more like .adults. Its really cool. I loved Athletics day, I really got into the SPIRIT and my House were great. Yep I'm going to make this Year the BEST.Plus thanks for not taking the Common Room away and making it into a classroom.
well some of us would just like to get on with this year- last years ball is history yep it gave my friends and I the opportunity to get dressed up and party into the wee hours and now 2007 is a new year with great new leaders- as one of your peers your accusation that the student BOT votes were rigged is a joke if there was any truth this would have made headline news just accept defeat graciously it all came down to us the students and the best person won by the way who is Ngati Paroa ?
she needs 2 actually learn maori dude ive seen other teachers write maori 4 her i dnt really apreciate being lied to either schools sposed to be about kids learning not the reputation , i hate her outlook on education but then what differs 1 principal from another
Mrs Gibbons does a really good job I had Sr and during that time a lot of kids moaned about her too so I guess you can't win. A lot of kids say that Mrs Gibbons is too strict I would like to say that assemblies masses uniform litter are much better and that the leaders have a higher profile than they did before. Anyway I say well done to Mrs G
Most of you kids have only been to SH so how can you compare and say she is the best ever. I was there with Sr Pauline and Gibbons, and I can say from experience that Sr did a much better job, yes maybe she wasn't as 'hip' as Gibbons (she had her own unique way) but she kept the school in order.
I spent a short time at Sacred Heart while my parents came back to visit family members iIreally loved my time at the College. Mrs Gibbons is lovely and I hope that she takes up our offer to visit us so that I can show her what a beautiful country we live in. Gracias to my wonderful teachers too Adios ,hasta pronto.
you alowed the school to play rugby. Thank you for giving them an oppourtunity to do that.
I love those motivational speeches & thats what our motto says whatever you do do to the best of your ability personally i want to be in a school with a winning attitude not a losers attitude thankgoddness she has high expectations and rewards EXCELLENCE. This weekend we won The Chanel Shield it was fabulous & yes WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS. YES FLOWERS
I like how she rewards Excellence in all areas- Academic, Sports, Cultural and Arts. I am in my 2nd yr at Uni & so many people say Sacred Heart Hamilton- very good school, because we have done so well in all of the above areas. You will realise how good Mrs Gibbons is when the name of the school gets you places . She always promotes SHGC positively
She is certainly very polarising it seems. I think she is good. Certainly not a godsend, but very competant.
I had her as Principal for 3 years too and I received a fantastic education at SHGC. Thanks to a brilliant testimonial I was successful in gaining several financial scholarships which have really set me up for life at Uni .Huge love for the College, myTeachers and Mrs Gibbons. The school motto Age Quod Agis is still my beacon. Yes a great school.
She should show more tribute to the girls who don't get first in their sport. Although competing against the best of nz or the north island or sometimes more, they try their hardest and get something not quite as good as gold but something they tried their hardest in, this should at least be mentioned in at assembly don't you think...
I had her for two years as a Principal and I got excellent results I was accepted into a prestigious International University to study Medicine. I am getting straight A's and I am grateful for the excellent education I received at SHGC.I have already thanked Mrs Gibbons personally for her support ,interest and frienship. She runs a great school .
a lovely principal when things were going horribly wrong for me at home &school she supported me she really cared she actually listened to me and made me feel good about myself again set things up so my parents and i could talk instead of yelling if it hadn't been for her i would have left school by now i am doing really well now i owe her heaps
mrs gibbons is an awesome principal and does and excellent job. We live a multi cultural country so for all those people who dis her cos they think she does too much maori stuff..grow up! And for those who think we have too much maori in our masses the catholic church supports bi-culturalism so get over it!
She is really nice always happy and when I went to see her about a poblem in one of classes she fixed it up straight away i really respect her too cos she walks the talk.
shes so boring wen she speaks in those long speaches in monotone and tries to force the maori language on u she is a man and also needs to learn to walk in her shoes, she is not a good principal in all honesty shes terrible
Hmmm why has the uniform changed to the Maori colours now huh??? Surely I'm not the only one who noticed this. She came in after Sr Pauline (who absolutely rocks) and tried to be her. It didn't work. She made a fool of herself. To 'fluffy' for my liking, I prefer people (especially principles) to be straight up.
i had her for two years at SCC as our Principal yes i was devastated too when she left she was PRIMO she took us on a Cultural Trip to Rotorua and Tauranga when U see your Principal stand strong & lead in both cultures you realise how lucky U are she is a special person a taonga to be treasured she supported eveything huge respect love you heaps
mrs gibbons was principal of SCC i had her for one year and we were all devastated to see her go:( she is the best love u ms u were the best Tina Turner our skool has ever seen:)
A really lovely person positive and supportive always speaks really highly of the college staff and students Gibbons.
i felt sad that som tchrs didn't want yr 12 cabaret too much work and worry about after parties its a pity she gets all the blame cos it takes two to tango i'm looking forward to SJ ball pleased she sad yes lots of photos and memories yr 13 will still have their ball so heaps of memories and photos all is good and i agree she is doing a good job
There will always be plus and minus to people but so far i think ally gibbons is doing a good job except for the school balls, she isn't the one that is going to miss out on the memories that we have all wished for! But except for that i think she is doing a good job! WELL DONE!
I guess if I was called Gibo I would find it hard to respect the inner quality if there is some there as a leader she has my respect and she has earnt it because of the person she is well done I say
ditto she has my respect too she works hard and is always really positive about us gals and congrats too on uping the uniform i think that we look really smart now and people comment in the street 2
Respect is EARNED & NOT enforced & goes both ways Gibo should learn this & FAST. Respect is not about outward appearances such as the uniform - it is an inner quality: part of a leaders job is to respect & respond accordingly
She was a great DP when she was at our school I was always in trouble she put me on detention to make up the time I wasted in class almost every day then she would take me home I finished Uni and now I have a really good job
a lovely person strict yes high expectations yes when she dealt with me over a disciplinary matter she listened and i was disciplined but i felt she was right i have a lot of respect for her and the job she does
A fabulous Principal heaps of students & staff openly cried when she announced she was leaving high expectations excellent discipline she really cares about her staff & students she increased the roll & we got a fab ERO rep
Awesome Principal when she was at St Caths really turned the school around did really great things.
Ruined the school what a load of rubbish she has really done some neat things she totally supports all student activities academic Duke ofEdin in Auck or Wellgt, sports, drama, arts, cultural on top of her job she is the best
She is a great PRINCIPAL. Before she came ACADEMICS got acknowledged at PRIZEGIVINGS she introduced TOP SCHOLAR BADGES CERTIFICTES & FLOWERS & EXCELLENCE CERTIFICATES BEST OF ALL WHEN YOU ARE DUX LIKE I WAS YOU GET A LAPTOP
I think that she is the best principal she has a difficult job but she deals with problems and moves on she is happy and always supports students in and out of school yes i think that she is great
I deeply respect Mrs Gibbons. She suspended me, and for something I didnt really even do, but I still think she is a really great principal and is to be commended for all the great things she has done
i think she was the worst thing that ever happened to sacred heart
A fabulous Principal has changed things yes but definitely for the better
I agree she is a really good principal. She is always welcoming when I have seen her at Academic, Cultural and Sporting functions I am amazed at how many things she supports. Definitely Go SHGC !
Mrs Gibbons is a really good principle! I don't really know her on a personal level but she is always kind and welcoming when you see her in the corridors and she runs a truly awesome school! GO SHGC!
i really enjoyed the academic assembly and when i was rapt when i received an award for getting 3 excellences i am definitely going to aim to pass last years record
Mrs Gibbons may be strict but she is very good at her job and I give her credit for all her hard work . More students should look up to her, they might learn a bit more. Well done Mrs Gibbons
i think that alli g has really done a lot of good for the skool but i think she could soften up on some of the rules. eg. no detention when phone 1st confiscated.
ali G needs to stop being so biast and start treating every student with respect. sh has her 'favourits' eg. th cultural groups, start aknowledging everyone else not just them.
she is awesome best principal i have ever had. i have been a champion academic, arts , cultural and sports it is not only sports who get recog anyone can whatever area as long as u r the best & i am
this is my last year and i have seen her do really neat things i think that the school is much better than it ever was i feel ashamed about some of the comments some of you dont deserve to be there
i hate we are the champion assemblys. you might say this is because id never be a 'champion' but just coz im not sporty i am academic. id like to see her give out more flowers for academics.
i think she is an excellent principal i came last year and we never saw our princ he was always in his office and you could never just visit him you can see mrs gibbons anytime she rocks she is strg
The longer you are at school for, the more you learn to respect her. She actually does know what she's talking about most of the time. Most of you are just to naive to know that yet. You'll learn.
she can have to different personalitys ,when i missed the bus she had a pscho at me and all i had to do was give my mum a ring and get her to pick me up ,shes so strict and up herself
At first i didn't like miss gibbons, she had huge shoes to fill after sister pauline, but after talking to her and working with her shes actually really nice and on to it. she does her best
i don't agree about the blazers b4 she made them comp all the other shgc wore them we looked really scruffy now we 're cool it has 0 to do with dio
Students aren't ever going to fully agree with a principal. She's got unusual ideas but she's good for the school and she's a good person. If you have an issue you should leave or get over it.
what a nice bunch of catholic girls you all are. She is a really nice person
a really good principal, strict but fair. She is strong and discipline is much better than it ever was.
personally i think sacred heart is deteriating as a college year by year ~ make it more fun, not so strict, and uptight. the strictness is driving students out of the school.
