houses, not to mention the sports they have assisted with. The year seems to fly past so quickly as the Gap students complete their twelve months of service and learning. We are all looking forward to the Collegiate Weekend and the House Music event this weekend along with other scheduled meetings and parent teacher interviews for the junior students. Have a happy holiday and a well-deserved rest.

I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank Deputy Headmaster, Mr Simon Coe for his work at Collegiate over the past six terms. It is a remarkable accomplishment to be selected for a top school such as Southland Boys’ High School after just six terms of senior management work. Simon is determined and courageous, as well as being a quick thinker and problem solver. He will be missed for his quality work in the academic arena and his support of the 1st XI football team at Collegiate. I wish Simon, Bronwen and their three boys all the best in their new life in Southland. Fromwhat I know of Simon and Southland, I am sure it will be a good fit for him and he will be a successful leader. We also farewell Gap Tutors, India Prince and Andy Trick at the end

Earl Bamber being part of the winning 24 hour Le Mans race, Stephen Perofeta playing in the New Zealand Under 20 team that beat the English in the World Cup final and Rebecca Scown continuing her amazing rowing career at the world champs. All these events occurred in a 24-hour period and produced a snapshot of the quality people that Collegiate produces. Mr Muirhead invited recent old boys and girls back to meet with the Year 13 students to give them the inside tips on university. It was a fantastic session with the current year 13 students picking the brains of our recent old boys and girls on the halls of residence and courses they are involved with. It exhibited to me that quite often the best resources we have are sitting in our community.
