The Centenary Committee met regularly from 2014 to plan a year-long programme to commemorate this significant milestone in style in the history of the College.
An exciting range of memorabilia is available to commemorate the event and can be bought from the Kit @ Clothing shop on campus. A beautiful coffee table book has been produced which is rich in anecdotes and images, provides an informative and entertaining account of the history of the College and is a wonderful book for Kearsney families to treasure for generations to come. Visit the shop online to view all these items. Link to shop catalogue.
Regrettably many of the special events being planned for the Centenary have had to be cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions. This includes the Centenary Ball and the 140km Kearsney Epic Run which was to be a relay run from the chapel at Kearsney College to the chapel at Old Kearsney, near Stanger, where the College started in 1921.
Our Centenary Concert was virtual and featured wonderful performances from professional Kearsney Old Boy musicians and the Kearsney College Choir. It was broadcast on YouTube on Tuesday 01 June, to a proud and appreciative audience watching from around the world. This special celebration can be watched on this link: https://youtu.be/dfXtVaH4vYo
We hope to be able to hold our 24-hour inter-house sports challenge scheduled for 20 September 2021.
Fortunately, we could hold the 18-hour ‘marathon’ reading of the New Testament on 09 and 10 March 2021. Tolle Lege – Take Up and Read. This involved the boys, staff, Old Boys, parents, churches and the wider community.
The South Wing of the Centenary Centre was completed towards the end of 2019. It provides the College with eleven additional modern and spacious classrooms and a beautiful courtyard, supplementing the four similar classrooms, the Centenary Arch and multi-purpose Long Room of the North Wing of the Centenary Centre, which was completed in 2016. Kearsney’s Centenary Centre was designed to provide world-class, state-of-the-art facilities suitable for collaborative 21st Century teaching and learning, in line with international best-practice. Academics are Kearsney’s number one priority and the development supports the College’s drive for academic excellence.
