HANNAH IRELAND - ALUMNI CELEBRATION
Hannah Ireland was the second student at Ormiston to be awarded our prestigious Waka Huia o Whakatupuranga in 2014.
We would like to congratulate Hannah, who as an emerging artist from Tāmaki Makaurau, Aotearoa, has won the Supreme award at the Molly Morpeth Canaday Awards in Whakatane earlier this year.
In May, she was also a finalist in the inaugural King Tūheitia Portraiture Award at the New Zealand Portrait Gallery. This award aims to encourage and support the next generation of Māori artists to pursue their aspirations in the realm of mahi toi (art). The competition attracted works by 128 Māori artists on this year's theme of tūpuna.
On 1 June 2021, Hannah graduated from the University of Auckland with a Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) and a Bachelor of Fine Arts (first class honors) with our Ormiston Senior College Cloak.
