Major Capping Changes

Major Capping Changes

Major changes in the composition of Capping Week activities have been approved by Executive.

The all-day charity collection has been abolished and a collection in costume during Procesh only will be held.

Other activities recommended for Capping Week include services for the old and needy arranged through organisations such as the City Mission and run on similar lines to "48 Hour Call".

Hospital-visiting and entertainment by groups of students will join the continuation and extension of the present Orphans' Party.

Services for and assistance with such groups as the Intellectually Handicapped Children's Society, the Kimi Ora Cerebral Palsy School and the Home of Compassion will be initiated.

Another recommendation was "gimmick" activities such as auctioning prominent personalities in aid of charity.

The committee also recommend a Social Controller should be in charge of all festivities.

He would be chairman of a Capping Committee consisting of the "Procesh" controller. Stunts Controller, Extravaganza Manager, Drinking Horn Controller, Miss Vic controller, Charities Controller, Cappicade Distribution Manager and a Publicity Controller.

It was recommended that a sub-committee of the Capping Committee be the Cappicade Distribution Committee, this to consist of the Distribution Manager and several regional distribution managers.

These would each be responsible for a selling area and would receive commission according to the number of Cappicades sold.
