Bridget, 2018 Head Girl

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 had a go at most sports. First it was rowing – after being inspired by the Evers Swindell sisters – then tennis, badminton, and netball. In Year 12, she took up hockey and was quickly promoted to the 2nd X1. But it’s triathlon where she really shone, as a member of the school team achieving some impressive results at competitions.

Bridget was Head Girl in her final year of school and joint Dux. She won a $20,000 scholarship to Auckland University and a $35,000 scholarship to Otago University where she is currently studying Health Science.

“I remember so well what it was like having someone look out for me when I first started at Nga Tawa. I gained so much from Nga Tawa and was so thankful for the opportunity to do the same for our younger students.”

“I loved boarding so much. Sometimes I felt like I didn’t want to go home!”

(Yes, she actually said that.)

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