The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, June 1915



On Sunday afternoon a Students' Service was held at St. John's Theological College. Motor buses were provided to take the visitors out to the College at Tamaki (some miles beyond Remuera), but owing to their leaving Auckland at the barbarous hour (for Sunday) of a quarter past one in the afternoon, many missed the Bus—not to mention a fine run round the outskirts of Auckland—and incidentally the Service. The latter was conducted by the Bishop of Auckland, and (so your scribe is informed) was of a very impressive character. Of your scribe's own knowledge, however, the gardens and plantations round the College are well worth seeing, being very picturesque and filled with associations with the early history of New Zealand, St. John's having been one of the earliest Churches. After the service the visitors were the guests of the Warden at afternoon tea.
