Wink Christ's College

Have lived in Christchurch for a few years before and know about CC from just looking and hearsay,but now we have just heard that my kids have passed the entrance exam and have places to start 2011 ( not as dumb as they look maybe ??!! or maybe school is desperate) and so we are thinking about returning as we have been for a while .... but before we post our cheques etc would love to hear some first hand info from families that have or have had their kids there ... cheers,many thanks.

Hi again - You may have already made your decision re Christ's College (?), but in case not, I wonder if you've done a search for 'christ's college' at http://www.press.co.nz? The college was in the news today because of the sudden (natural causes) death on campus of an apparently well-regarded teacher, which reminded me about your question here at BE about the school. So I did a quick search for 'Christ's College' at The Press site, and came across this article which might interest you, especially the 'comments' section which follows. (Just bear in mind that although the article was written recently - May 2010 - the actual school 'open house' experience the author is writing about took place a few years ago, so not exactly current. The comments following the article however ARE current...)
