Carrying on the Spring theme at College House, we had a visit from two lovely lambs, Tilly and Bomber, from Banks Peninsula. They are family pets over there so were happy to be fed and patted by the CH students. Lots of fun.

Spring at College House is a great time of the year. Thanks to Dan who keeps are grounds and gardens in great condition. The first leaves have come out on the fantastic Golden Elm in the quad and there is definitely a different feel around College House with the warmer weather in Christchurch.

CarbonReduce Certification with Toitū Envirocare
Earlier this year the College House Board of Trustees approved a recommendation from the Principal to undertake, what is known as, the CarbonReduce certification with Toitū Envirocare. This is the government organisation that assists businesses and organisations to reduce their carbon footprint and take a sustainable approach to the way they do business. It requires a rigorous auditing process on an annual basis to maintain certification.

We are pleased to announce after several months’ preparation and a successful audit, we have achieved the CarbonReduce Certification with Toitū Envirocare. We have accurately measured our greenhouse gas emissions and are putting strategies in place to manage and reduce their impacts.

College House is now committed to sustainability by reducing waste, recycling, investing in renewable technologies and education and consulting with staff and students. This will ensure we contribute towards reducing our carbon footprint and minimising, and hopefully reversing climate change.

College House Chapel Re-opening - New Date
After the postponement of the Chapel Re-opening in September 2021 and February 2022, we are pleased to announce that the Chapel of the Upper Room will be re-opened on Sunday 25 September 2022.

09/02/2022

Chapel Re-opening Postponement

Dear Alumni members and friends

It is with regret that due to the arrival of the Covid-19 Omicron variant in New Zealand and our nation’s subsequent move to the Red Light setting, we have little option but to delay plans for the Chapel Re-opening scheduled for Sunday 20 February.

While disappointing, we realise there is simply no alternative but to follow the recommended health and safety guidelines outlined earlier this week.

We trust you will understand our decision and we look forward to being able to hold this special event in the not too distant future.

A new date for the Re-opening will be announced when we can be confident of holding a risk-free event.

All the very best.

Richard Taylor
Principal
