Executive Principal Garth Wynne opened the annual Christ’s College sponsorship event on a late summer sunny evening, by thanking our sponsors for their support and generosity in 2018 and welcoming our 2019 sponsors for the season ahead.
Coaches, managers and parents, along with sponsors and special guests, gathered together for an evening of laughter, drinks and canapés to celebrate the 2018 Drama and Sport seasons. This year’s theme was "On the Couch", with MC Peter Davidson inviting guests and sponsors to join him to discuss the impact of 2018 sponsorship and what 2019 might hold.
Special guest Old Boy Robbie Deans joined 1st XV head coach Reuben Thorne and master-in-charge of rugby Stephen Dods on the couch. As head coach for the Panasonic Wild Knights in Japan, Robbie discussed the importance of sponsorship in his professional career. He also spoke about the 2017 College trip, where six rugby playing students had the opportunity to travel to Ota City for an intensive training workshop with the team.
The evening was a great opportunity for College to say "thank you" and for guests to mingle and meet our growing sponsorship community.
