On Wednesday 3 July, 35 Old Collegians spanning generations from 1952 to 2022 joined together for the Wellington Cocktail Function. The event, hosted once again by Jonathan Scragg (OC 1996) at Duncan Cotterill, served as a valuable networking platform.

The gathering was a blend of generations, from Lindsay Watt (OC 1952), a nonagenarian who started at the College 72 years ago in 1948, to recent 2022 graduate, Lachlan Johns. This event served as an excellent platform for networking and reconnecting with our alumni community, particularly those who may not always be able to attend our Canterbury-based events.

Richard Halliday (OC 1974) gifted the museum his 1974 Blazer and a fascinating book about the Otaki Scholarship, a program that St Andrew’s has proudly participated in since its inception in 1937. Euan Galloway (OC 1964) returned a special book to Christine that once belonged to his late father and former Rector, Ian Galloway. The book, which had an inscription requesting its return to the Rector’s office, is now safely back where it was originally gifted to the College by its author in 1934.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to all the Old Collegians who ventured out on a chilly and damp Wellington evening to show their support and reconnect with our community.
