Bridget, Year 12

When your mother, your aunts and your cousins are all Nga Tawa old girls, it’s almost destiny that you too will one day step inside the green gates.

That’s how it was for Bridget Bone – enrolled the day she was born, and entertained throughout her childhood with many a tale of Nga Tawa.

Bridget is a girl who likes to have a go at everything. “I’m quite competitive,” she says. “When I decide to do something, I give it my best.”

At Nga Tawa, she has had a go at most sports. First it was rowing – after being inspired by the Evers Swindell sisters – then tennis, badminton, and netball. A year ago, she took up hockey and was quickly promoted to the 2nd X1. But it’s triathlon where she really shines, as a member of the school team achieving some impressive results at competitions.

Bridget is also a Big Sister, charged with looking after a Year 9 new girl and helping them settle in to boarding school life.

“I remember so well what it was like having someone look out for me when I first came here. I’ve gained so much from Nga Tawa and now I want to do the same for someone else.”

“I love boarding so much. Sometimes I feel I don’t want to go home!”

(Yes, she actually said that.)

 “Just like squeezing an orange, I want to be able to say I squeezed every last opportunity out of Nga Tawa!”
