Christchurch OGA Xmas Morning Tea
On Saturday 8th December members of Christchurch Branch met for our annual Christmas Morning Tea at Eliza’s Manor on Bealey Avenue. The Manor, a beautiful 19th century boutique hotel, is owned and managed by Ann Zwimpfer and her husband. Ann is a former pupil of our school and enjoys playing hostess to her fellow ‘old girls’ as much as we enjoy the hospitality provided.
91 year-old Mary Verity cut the home-made Christmas cake and, along with delicious sandwiches, savouries, sweet slices and Christmas mince pies, all thoroughly enjoyed a magnificent spread.
Principal Sarah Davies updated the group on the current status of the school and hostel, leaving no doubt to all present that Timaru Girls’ is in good hands.
The raffles were drawn and three lucky members went home with a lovely hamper of “kitchen goodies” each, all contents being donated by members. After a hearty rendition of the school song, girls went on their way, having enjoyed another great get-together and scrumptious food.
