Executive Principal’s Prize for Service Kurtis has been an outstanding Head of Boarding this year and has made a significant contribution to the enhancement of the boarding experience for our boys. He has handled this role with great maturity, as well as moral courage, and has not been afraid to make some tough decisions. He has been the captain of our 1st XI and vice-captain of the 1st XV, and has demonstrated outstanding sporting leadership. He is a very humble young man, with great integrity. He always seeks the best for the school, and for others. He is an excellent role model to our younger students and a fine example of the servant leader.
HM Chrystall Prize for All-round Merit in Sport and Scholarship As you have heard in the Senior Sportsman citation, Sam Darry has an impressive list of sporting achievements. He has also been a diligent scholar, earning a Gold Badge for his NCEA Level 1 results and maintaining a strong academic performance in Levels 2 and 3. All of this has been achieved within the context of very demanding training regimes in rugby and rowing, as well as the leadership responsibilities Sam has had as Head of Flower’s House, school prefect and captain of the 1st XV. It is fitting that he has recently been awarded a University of Canterbury Emerging Leaders’ Scholarship.
Somes Prize for Outstanding Overall Contribution to the Arts and General Scholarship Angus has made a phenomenal contribution to the arts in his time at College. He was head of the Arts & Culture committee this year and ran an action- packed and highly successful Arts Week. He also promoted arts and culture energetically at school assemblies. His dedication to contemporary music has helped raise contemporary music to new heights at College, and we have been privileged to hear him perform on numerous occasions. He was also an influential member of our Big Band and Jazz Combo. He participated in four major productions at College and was a lead role in West Side Story this year. He has many more accolades, too numerous to list in this citation. Suffice it to say, Angus has shown great energy, talent and passion in his time at College and has been enormously influential in the arts, while maintaining strong academic results.
