Debating Dunstan

This week our senior team had a debate against the senior Dunstan High School team. The debate was an evening one and it was held at the Centennial Court in Alexandra. The Rotary Club provided a lovely meal and a great audience.

Our senior team was depleted because of the Waimate Exchange. We had one senior debater and two Year 10 speakers. It was a fabulous and hard fought debate and we were pleased to come out as the winners. Well done boys!

Backstage @Cromwell College Production

Cromwell College’s production this year was ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and students from Year 7 to Year 13 put on a brilliant and very well received show. The students performed to capacity crowds and they really enjoyed themselves. Lots of fun was to be found backstage and it was a fantastic experience helping with the make-up. I was able to take a few photos of what went on behind the stage doors and I am sharing them here:

Before the show


A few shots of our wonderful griffin – he was a real crowd favourite!


The main cast had to spend a lot of time in hair and make-up but it was worth it.
