From the New Zealander, Volume 12, Issue 1115, 24 December 1856, “Yesterday afternoon, the children attending the Church of England schools of St Paul’s, St Matthew’s and the Barracks were treated to their annual Christmas fête on the beautiful lawn in front of Government House, the use of which was kindly granted by His Excellency. The number of children present exceeded 500... their little mouths were kept in active operation with cakes and summer beverages after which they separated to their several games!”

We’re very sad to let you know that Kyleigh is leaving our staff team. Kyleigh has been at the heart of our team over the last three years, and one of our highlights was her recent wedding to Andrew. During their honeymoon, Kyleigh suffered bleeding on her brain that led to a dramatic few weeks, and now quite a long recovery period. Andrew and Kyleigh have decided to let that recovery unfold without the spectre or pressure of a return to work. We’re so happy that Kyleigh is on the mend and want to thank her for the heart and soul she’s poured into the church and office over the last few years. Thanks Kyleigh, you’re a one-of-a-kind!
