Centennial Organising Committee, 1 June 2012
Our Centennial celebration was 4 years in the planning, delayed for a year because of the earthquakes, but the outcome was a fabulous occasion.
The Centennial Committee set out some clear objectives on what it wanted to achieve. I am pleased to say that our expectations were more than fully met.
The feedback has been overwhelming and unanimously positive.
The comprehensive plan was magnificently organised and executed by the College staff with the assistance of our very professional main suppliers the Conference Company and Continental Caterers.
The Bedean community turned out in force and revelled in recalling and recounting their memories of the past. The College as it is today was showcased for us by the Rector and his staff. The students demonstrated the quality of their education and their development into fine, well educated, multi-talented young men. It made us proud to be Bedeans.
The ceremonial Masses were a highlight; our speakers did us proud, recalling the past with respect and humour. We were well entertained.
If the support demonstrated at this centennial celebration is anything to go by St Bede’s has a very bright future.
