Educate Plus Award for St Andrew’s College
The St Andrew’s College Development and Marketing and Communications teams have won the Educate Plus 2018 Advancement Award for Alumni and/or Community Event, for the planning, preparation and execution of the College’s 2017 Centenary Gala Weekend, and their production of The Spirit of St Andrew’s book and film, and StAC100 commemorative magazine.
The award was presented at the Educate Plus Conference, held in Auckland in early September. It was the largest international conference for Educate Plus to date, with over 600 attendees.
Over 80 Independent Schools from across Australia and New Zealand entered the fiercely fought Alumni and Community Event category, with each shortlisted school having an opportunity to present their event/submission to delegates at a Breakfast Blitz ‘speed dating’ type session, before the finalists and winners were chosen.
Just one point separated each of the finalists in the category, with St Andrew’s College delighted to come out on top, says Rector Christine Leighton. “We are incredibly proud of our Development and Communications teams, who did such a wonderful job of preparing for our magnificent Centenary celebrations. This award is a fitting tribute to all their hard work.”
