Dear Old Boys,
Another incredibly busy term draws to a close for the more than 1,760 young men of the school. The recent winter tournament week, which saw 18 teams competing all around the country, the annual School Concert, Dramafest, the upcoming school exams, cultural and musical performances, the winter sports season – and many more activities make for a packed programme.
The recent Olympics saw three of our Old Boys competing, Gillies Kaka (Sevens), Hayden Phillips and Nick Wilson (both hockey) and recently we had Ryan Orange (8993), Rhodes Scholar, join us at an academic assembly where we presented NCEA Excellence awards.
It was great to have Hamish McKay speak at our recent Old Boys Dinner, held annually at the school. He entertained the crowd with nostalgic reminiscences of his time at school and in College House, as well as his time in the world of television.
The Old Boys functions have continued throughout the year, with a number of reunions held at school and with upcoming functions in Auckland, Wellington, Sydney and Melbourne. All are welcome – it would be great to see you at one of these functions.
