Welcome to the last OCA Newsletter of 2022 and what a busy year it has been with still plenty of events coming up here at St Andrew's College.
At the end of last term we hosted a special reunion where we welcomed nearly 100 of our Old Girls back to celebrate 30 Years of Girls and co-education at the College. It was a wonderful event and it was great to have so many of our original girls here to share their memories and catch up with old friends.

On Friday 14 October we had another very well attended Gentlemen's Luncheon combined with the 70 Years On (Class of 1952) where 90 of our Old Collegians, aged between 74 and 99, joined us for a concert in the Centennial Chapel and then over to Strowan House for a delicious lunch. It was lovely to see so many return from last year too.

Our OCA Golf Tournament is finally happening at Waitikiri Golf Club tomorrow with close to 100 registered for this. Thank you to Paul McEwan (OC 1971) who, once again, has put so much of his time into organising this.
We will be at the Canterbury A&P Show every day so make sure you come to site L13, outside the livestock pavilion, where we will have some tasty treats, cold drinks and some comfy sofas to rest your weary legs. We will also have some merchandise for sale, including Old Collegian ties, so if yours is lost or a bit tatty we will have a fresh one waiting for you!
On Thursday 10 November we welcome our 10 Years On, Class of 2008–2012, and we are looking forward to showing them what has been happening since they left the College.
You will see we have some dates for our 2023 Reunions in this newsletter. I am awaiting a confirmed date for the OCA Annual Dinner and the 1st XV Rugby Reunion and I will publish these on the website when they are available.
This Sunday we are pleased to present StAC Attack 2022. As an Old Collegian of St Andrew’s College, we are sure you have many memories of the St Andrew's Pipe Band from your time here so please come along and reminisce with us!

The St Andrew's College Pipe Band is hosting The Strowan Gathering on Sunday 4 December at the College. This will be a fabulous day out with a very Highland flavour! Keep an eye on our Events Page for more information coming soon.
I look forward to seeing some of you in the upcoming weeks and months.
