Dear Old Boys

Most people are gradually settling back into some resemblance of order and that fortunately includes increasing sport contact for many. A game of hockey was played between a team comprised mainly of Old Boys and the College's 1st XI at the start of the month. This was keenly contested and eventually won by the College, 4-3. Old Boy Josh McKay spoke to the boys after the match and handed over the captain's armband to this season's captain, Gus Borren. It would be good to see an increase in this sort of activity across the codes.

Also, with many of the restrictions of the lockdown behind us, planning is underway for a Memorial Service for Bruce Hamilton. This is scheduled to take place in the College Gymnasium (Auditorium undergoing extensive earthquake strengthening) on Thursday 30th July at 1:00 PM. All Old Boys, friends of the College and of Bruce are cordially invited to attend as we acknowledge Bruce's extraordinary contribution to Rathkeale College.

Other dates of interest:

  • Monday 29th July Rathkeale 1st XI Hockey vs. Gladstone (including many Rathkeale Old Boys), Match 2, 6:15 PM at Clareville.
  • Wednesday 5th August Rathkeale vs. Whanganui Collegiate. All codes Away.
  • Tuesday 25th August Rathkeale vs. Lindisfarne College. All codes Home.
  • Thursday 10th September Founders' Day Assembly. College Gymnasium at 1pm (N.B. Auditorium building subject to earthquake strengthening).

Kind regards
