Celebrating in style

Tauranga Boys’ College will be celebrating its 60th anniversary this Labour Weekend with a jubilee event and a reunion.

Events will take place throughout Labour Weekend and start with a 10-hole golf tournament on Friday, October 19 from 12.30pm.

A ‘beers and cheers’ event will follow at 6.30pm at the Tauranga Racecourse, followed by a weekend full of events and celebrations.

Saturday’s events include an official welcome, T20 cricket and the signature gala dinner, held in the school gymnasium.

Sunday will feature an arts expose where visitors can enjoy a display of visual, dramatic and musical art.

Tauranga Boys’ College alumni and past Sports Captain Peter Burling and Head Prefect Kane Williamson will also be honoured during the weekend, and commemorative merchandise will be available.

“At the end of 2017 we have a college that is well-known nationally and admired locally for its academic scholarship, breadth of courses to suit all learners, wide-ranging sporting reputation, outstanding arts and culture and for the young men it produces, building on the legacy laid in the previous 60 years,” says Principal Robert Mangan.

“This year a 10-year record aims to capture the essence of the last decade, where an ever-increasing and diverse student population has stamped its mark on the culture of the school.”

Old boys, old collegians from the district high school and college, past and present staff and partners are all welcome.
