The Festival Awards Evening, held on Thursday 13 October at Eden Park, was a special occasion which recognised the efforts of students, parents, staff and members of the wider Lynfield community, who have contributed to the College extra-curricular activities in 2016.
Our guest speaker was a very special young woman - former student Tyla Nathan Wong who recently represented New Zealand at the Rio Olympics as a member of the Women's 7's Rugby Team who gained a silver medal. Tyla spoke exceptionally well and her contribution to the evening was much appreciated by everyone who attended.
We celebrated the success of sporting, arts and cultural aspects of the College, with awards for outstanding achievement and contribution at the senior level.
