College is in great shape and achieving fantastic results across many areas.
The recent Christchurch Boys’ High School rugby clash was another wonderful occasion, with some fantastic skills on display. The result was again very close and could have gone either way towards the end. Congratulations to all the boys and supporters, with a great win to College. We had players, coaches and managers from 25, 50, 60 and 65 years on attend our Rugby Reunion events at College, prior to travelling to Straven Road for kick-off. The celebrations continued after the game at Fat Eddie’s, and it was great to connect with Old Boys from various generations and reminisce.

We all value our College education and know it has been influential in our lives. If you want your son or grandson to attend sometime in the future, it is important to act now.
The popularity of College means that places are increasingly in demand. Year 9 places for 2022 are already fully subscribed. This has been the case for a number of years, with a waitlist for places. Our, enrolments are looking very full for 2023, with lots of enquiries well into the future.
With such a high demand – when the hard decisions must be made – selection is done on the enrolment date. If you want your sons or grandsons to attend College, I strongly recommend that you go to the website sooner rather than later. Follow the instructions for enrolment here.
Senior Honours Ties
We are privileged to have many Old Boys living the College values and demonstrating these virtues – locally and globally – on a daily basis. This year, CCOBA Vice President, Angus Dysart-Paul introduced two distinguished Old Boys at College assembly to present their Honours Tie in absentia. It was great that we were able to use technology to recognise these two Old Boys.
Sir Michael Fowler, 91, and living in Wellington, was honoured as an architect, artist, politician and leader, while Dr Vaughan Smith, of Silicon Valley, California, was honoured as an entrepreneur, CEO, and former vice-president at Facebook.
