“I’m very excited to be part of the advisory board of Crimson. I truly believe Crimson has the vision, leadership and the brainpower to change the landscape of Education. CGA is operating in a space where the demand for its online model is growing dramatically due to the changes enabled by technology and how children are learning nowadays through online platforms like Youtube. Students want to learn in a different way, the way that it suits them and CGA is adapting to that. The incredible students coming out from the Universities, where our students are going to, are changing the world. CGA and Crimson as a whole have identified the model to support and prepare our students to get there and grab the opportunities out there for them in the modern world. Lastly, the best teachers are not all centred physically around where students are and that means that we have to innovate and do things differently to provide them the access to the best teachers available in NZ and the world. CGA does that, and all these things combined are why we all see great achievements from our alumni.”
