Shane the Matchmaker

Shane Global Village (SGV) Auckland recently witnessed a very happy event when two of the school's students were married. Itsuki Kusuda and Sanae Hanamitsu, both from Japan, are long-standing students at SGV Auckland. They were married at a special ceremony at the Hilton Hotel, located on the harbourside and just a few minutes' walk from the school. The ceremony was conducted by Warwick Thorley, husband of long-standing staff member, Jacqui Thorley, who was assisted by teacher Michael Collins. After the ceremony a reception was held and the occasion was attended by around 50 students, teachers and staff of the school. The best man was another SGV student, Kenji Shibata, who carried out his duties perfectly and later ensured that the drink flowed in order to toast the happy couple! Itsuki and Sanae are now back at school - we wish them every happiness in their new life together.
