Glendowie College - Orakei - 2 kw

Glendowie College is a co-educational state secondary school of 960 students in Auckland's Eastern Suburbs. One of the college's four learning pillars is ‘Preparing Students for Life through quality education’. “The Genesis Energy Schoolgen programme is a perfect opportunity to help prepare students for the future.
