Epsom Girls Grammar School – Public and Media Relations
Epsom Girls Grammar School engaged Wright Communications to
provide media relations support to raise the school's profile and
promote several campaigns including the Scriptor Series at the Raye
Freedman Arts Centre and the Leading Women in Sport Campaign.
The Leading Women in Sport Campaign aims to build first-rate
sporting facilities to give the students better opportunities to
participate in sport. The school's existing sports facilities did
not meet the needs or demands of the 2200 students who participate
in more than 40 sports and physical education classes.
The brief for the Leading Women in Sport Campaign included
gaining media coverage for the newly built Joyce Fisher Sports
Centre and the ongoing fundraising efforts for a new Sports Arena
The Wright solution
Wright Communications worked with the school's principal, staff
and students to identify a variety of events and story angles that
were media-worthy and could be positioned as such.
Wright Communications wrote media releases and pitched stories
into national and local print and online media and gained
significant coverage in the New Zealand
Herald, Central Leader and The
The client was satisfied with the media coverage especially that
of the New Zealand Herald's 12 Questions for
which they received fantastic feedback.
Epsom Girls Grammar School has been strategically working with Wright Communications since 2015. Communicating a modern learning environment and education is paramount at one of New Zealand’s largest school’s for young women. We are delighted with the results as we build towards our Centenary in 2017.
