College – Issue 31

DEVELOPMENT OFFICE A visionary plan emerges

As the scaffolding and temporary buildings have disappeared from College in the last year, one aspect of the College landscape, the Quad, has returned to its original glory. It is well recognised as a symbol of College’s heritage, but its future now will be as a witness to a new era here at College.

With the majority of earthquake work done, a significant resource review completed, new Executive Principal and Board Chair appointments confirmed, and a major curriculum review underway, the “new era” is well and truly underway.

The result of all of this is a new visionary plan that will take Christ’s College outside of the current grounds and into the city with new buildings and new programmes that will be sure to be inspirational. The Development Team is charged with bringing a new campaign called “For

the Boys. For Our Future” out to the wider College community, and sharing it with everyone who has a continuing and vested interest in the future of College. The campaign will be a significant factor in determining the outcome of the visionary plan.

Campaign Chairman announced

College is particularly pleased to announce that Christchurch solicitor Garth Gallaway has accepted the position of Campaign Chairman.

Garth is a senior partner in leading law firm Chapman Tripp, an Old Boy and current parent of College. Garth’s wide community interests have included Arts New Zealand, the Christchurch Art Gallery, New Zealand Football, Radio Sport cricket commentary, the Film and Literature Board of Review among many others. This combination of commercial and community expertise, a wide collegial network, and his passion for College makes Garth eminently suitable to lead the campaign from the front.
