The three Black, White and Gold awards have set criteria to be met – reflecting House participation, academic endeavour, service, personal attributes, duty and responsibility – before they can be achieved. The Year 13 students played a major role in developing and actioning this awards programme and they are to be commended for their efforts. In particular, Will Chaffey and Thomas Graham have made a significant contribution, and both agree these awards are to be gained not just given out. This is their contribution to the House mantra “Good House to a Great House – Leaving a lasting legacy”. School House achieved some notable successes in the interhouse competition: Athletics Field Events Cup – 1st Senior golf – 1st Year 9 tug of war – 1st Rowing – 1st House Plays – 2nd

the House: Vicky, Kerri, Karen and Carolyn, our awesome domestic team, who keep the House spic and span; Philippa, the seamstress, for all sewing and mending; Assistant Housemasters Kate, Callum and Nick for all the work they have done, particularly with mentor groups; Sam, for your help as non-residential tutor, and for providing cover on weekends; residential tutors Callum, Grant and Jack, who make a huge contribution, especially after normal school hours; Sharon Cryer, our hardworking and dedicated matron, for her unsurpassed care and support of the boys; Deputy Housemaster Henry Smith, who is a great support and to whom I know I can entrust the reins of the House if I am away; thanks, also, to Henry’s family, Kate, Ben and Ruby, for their support of Henry and the House; a big thank you to Vikki, Rebekah and Joshua for their input and their amazing support of me – I am so grateful; lastly, thank you to the Lord for the strength and guidance He has given me in 2019. “He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God” (Micah 6:8). “Good House to a Great House – Leaving a lasting legacy”.

At the end of the year, we celebrated and farewelled our Year 13 leavers and their parents. Head of House Will Chaffey and his father, Sandy, gave outstanding speeches, highlighting their five years at College and in School House. At the end of the evening the boys in Years 9–12 performed a rousing College haka as a final farewell. It was an outstanding end to a great year in School House. Will C, Thomas, Charlie, Tim, Lachie, Edward, George H, George L, Ben, Sam, Tom, Homare, Will P, Caleb, Alex and Henry you have finally made it! Hopefully, you will look back on your years in the House with pride and satisfaction. Will and Thomas, you have led your peers and the House with compassion and empathy. Indeed, the entire Year 13 group demonstrated outstanding leadership in all House activities and in support of House staff. Gents, all the best on your marathon called life – and remember, it is a marathon, not a sprint. I hope you will take some very fond memories away. As a group, you have cemented some strong and lasting friendships, and I know you will use the skills you have gained at College to face the challenges you will meet in the “real world”. We wish you all the best for the future. Finally, I would like to thank the following for their contribution to

Athletics Sports – 2nd Senior hockey – 2nd Shooting – 2nd

The House was also involved in a number of service activities, including assisting Aviva Family Violence Services and Multiple Sclerosis & Parkinson’s Canterbury with street collections. The boys also raised $600 for both Tearfund and the Prostate Cancer Foundation of New Zealand, by completing 20 days without a cube-a-thon in the first 20 days of September. We acknowledge the following School House boys for notable achievements through the year: Maadi Cup Louie Bethell, Gus Orr – Gold U16 Four, U16 Eight
