GOLDEN JUBILEE 1962-2012
Undoubtedly you will all know that the Jubilee has come and gone, and to all extent and purposes it was a resounding success. I have already mentioned the great work Kevin Barry and his committee put in, and you can add to that many of the quiet, behind-the-scenes workers, both staff and parents, who were instrumental in making the weekend the success that it was. For those of you who didn’t attend any of the celebrations, I will outline some of the highlights.

GOLDEN JUBILEE 1962-2012
I cannot believe that we are into May already – this year is flying by. One of the reasons is that the Jubilee preparations are keeping us all very busy. This celebration takes place on Queen’s Birthday weekend (1st, 2nd and 3rd June) and it is important to remember that it is not just for Old Boys, but parents and friends of the college. Kevin Barry, the Chairman of the Jubilee committee, is anxious that we don’t leave it to the last minute to register, mainly because he needs to know numbers (especially for the dinner at Eden Park on Saturday night). The programme is on our website, and on the flyer recently sent to you, so I will not dwell on that aspect of the celebrations.

Scholarship results came out on 15 February and Rosmini gained a total of 30 scholarships. These are the college’s best ever results, surpassing the previous record of 23 in 2005. This is a testimony to the hard work put in by the staff, and especially the boys in this challenging national examination for the country’s academic elite.

On reflection, as the year of 2011 draws to a close many people will utter a sigh of relief. It has been a year dominated by natural disasters and economic and political turmoil. Thankfully at Rosmini it has been a very successful year.
This year Rosmini sought and achieved excellence in both the academic and sporting arenas. I cannot remember a year when Rosmini has won so many titles. Academically, Jonathan Lee and Husam Khalil took out two of the top scholarships at Auckland University; Sean Boult won a Future Leaders’ Scholarship to Otago University; Daniel Parker won a Significant Student Scholarship to AUT and Hayden Wright obtained a Ned Covich Scholarship, and I am sure there are more to come.
