THE QUADRANGLE New-look electronic newsletter

Just out of New Zealand’s Covid-19 national lockdown, CCOBA launched its new-look electronic newsletter for our Old Boys, called The Quadrangle. Two of these new-look productions have now been shared with our database, and the feedback is heartening. We wanted the electronic newsletter to be fit for purpose -- interesting, entertaining and stimulating – and hoped it would even help reconnect you with old friends. The revamp of the newsletter came about following a CCOBA survey and we thank everyone who took the time to respond to it. In all there were 700 replies, from a broad cross section of members – from 18-year-olds to 86+ year olds. All were incredibly supportive and encouraging of the work we do. The survey was prompted by our decision to produce a more user-friendly online version of our newsletter, to ensure it had the right name, and check its content meets requirements. Thanks to the late Rod Heard and many others who suggested reverting to the publication’s original name, The Quadrangle , which was introduced in 1994 when Rod was CCOBA president.
