10 Years On (2008–2012)


More news for Reunions

On Thursday 10 November, we welcomed 65 members of the Class of 2008–2012 back for their 10 Years On reunion. The afternoon started with a tour of the College, with the Old Collegians enjoying the chance to see the many changes which have taken place on the campus since the 2011 earthquakes. Following the tour, the group gathered in the Centennial Chapel where they were addressed by Rector Christine Leighton, who reflected on the changes that have happened since they had left, and also the memories she had from their time at the College. This was followed by an amusing speech from Jono Oxley and Tim Tarbotton (both 2012), who reminded organist, Bryan Botting, about the time he nodded off at the organ during a sermon.

The Cocktail Party in Strowan House was a wonderful catch up for the Old Collegians who had a lot to talk about after 10 years apart. There were several special guests in attendance, including the Dean of the year group Jane Corbett, who came from Blenheim to join the celebration. The reunion party later visited a local establishment, where they reminisced well into the early hours. It was a memorable occasion for all.
