The St Andrew‘s College Centenary year was a fantastic festival of celebration. The past has been well remembered and honoured, with tribute paid to all who laid the foundation for what we enjoy today. The present was also very much celebrated as St Andrew’s steps confidently into its second century. Below are some of the many highlights shared by the College community throughout Centenary year.

Dedication of the Centennial Chapel

25 October 2016

The Centennial Chapel Dedication was held on Tuesday 25 October, with a large community gathering to mark this historic occasion. We enjoyed performances from the College’s kapa haka, choir, Pipe Band and renowned singers Joshua Pike and Mark Tavendale (OC 1987). Readings and poems were given by Head prefects and Head sacristan. The dedication was followed by a full chapel service led by the Moderator of the Presbyterian Church Right Rev. Andrew Norton. Louis Newman (Pipe Major) piped the recessional and the Pipe Band played as guests gathered outside after the service.

It was truly a magnificent occasion and wonderful to celebrate our new Chapel being at the heart of our community once again. Many of our Old Collegians who attended were at the dedication of the Memorial Chapel in 1955. They remarked how special it was that items from the Memorial Chapel have been so beautifully integrated into our new Chapel. We were also truly blessed with the wonderful weather.
