Christchurh OGA Get-together
On Thursday evening 16th October members of the Christchurch Branch of the Old Girls’ Association met for their second “dinner date” with boys from the local branch of Timaru Old Boys’. Held at the Cashmere Club again, the buffet dinner had been so well received two years ago there was great anticipation for a repeat event – especially from the boys!
Once again the boys outnumbered the girls: two-to-one; not bad odds from the girls’ perspective! Girls’ High Principal, Sarah Davis, and Nick McIvor, Rector of Boys’ High, both addressed the gathering providing an update on current happenings at each of our schools.
Raffles and an auction for an aeroplane flight brought in some welcome cash, shared between the two branches. This year the boys surpassed the girls in the singing of our respective school songs, certainly in terms of volume but provided added entertainment, and overall the evening of good food and wine, convivial chat and friendly laughter as we reminisced, was enjoyed by everyone. Feedback from both sides has been positive with requests to repeat a get-together again in the future.
