A Social Vacation

A Social Vacation

For the first time the traditional black-out of student social activities over the long vacation was lifted this year. With the joint object of keeping old students resident in Wellington together and of welcoming potential freshers. Tea Dances were advertised and held every two or three weeks. Aside from these more or less regular affairs, special efforts included a Christmas Ball, a dance for visiting Canterbury College Shakespearean players and an Anniversary Day picnic at Titahi Bay.

Owing to the inevitable holiday dispersion of the social committee, the experiment was organised and carried out by a special sub-committee consisting of Gib Bogle, Margaret Beattie and Dick Daniell. As attendances were generally good the scheme will probably be carried forward next year.
