Kia ora koutou
Please read this link to my assembly speech from this morning as the staff and boys of the College gathered to reflect on the enormity of Fridays events.
The horrific events of Friday in Christchurch are completely unprecedented in a country that we have considered safe from the extremist madness that afflicts so many places.
An event like this is hard to comprehend for any of us let alone our young men.
