Boarders' Assembly 2023

St Andrew's College boarding students at Boarders' Assembly.


The group of 25 Year 13 boarders cleverly adapted a theme of ‘News and Seven Sharp’ to share their perspective on life as boarders with the Middle School and Senior College at the Boarders’ Assembly.

Expertly filmed videos of ‘Life on the Farm’, golfing in Queenstown, and Kiwiana icons made for great entertainment, alongside the traditional boarders’ dance items and challenges. Lambs, chickens, dogs, and even a cow made an appearance, with Portia Bennie (Year 13) delivering an entertaining Morning Comment, sharing her thoughts on boarding. The Heads of Boarding, George MacLeod and Freddy Todhunter, and the Year 13 boarders did a great job of creating and organising the assembly, which was an excellent reminder of the routines, joys, and extra challenges of life as a boarder.
