For The Boys

Since 1850, Christ's College has prepared generation after generation of young men for success in an ever-changing world.

What we do now is key to how our young men emerge, not only with enduring values, but minds that are curious, passionate and inspired, ready for a world of exponential learning.

For Our Future

As New Zealand and the world seek inspirational leaders of the future, it places Christ's College at the beginning of a new era which demands a bold vision.

This vision is inspired by the educational reality that to be recognised internationally as New Zealand's leading school for boys, and to inspire those boys to make an impact, we need to be more innovative than ever before.

“One boy at a time being inspired to change lives, communities and the world.”

Executive Principal

To date, we have raised just over $2.5 million towards the threshold build target. In order to begin construction in 2020 the urgent deadline to raise these funds in June 2019.

Building new facilities

Recognising that growth on our existing site is constrained, our Master Plan takes College beyond the gates in to the city.

Science Centre

The new Science Centre will be within the current College grounds on the site of the existing gymnasium and science block which will be demolished as they no longer provide appropriate teaching spaces for today's requirements and future curriculum direction. The Centre will provide an exciting new learning environment to teach the pure sciences, and to explore cross-curriculum project learning and innovation, accentuated by the stunning views over Hagley Park.

Music Learning and Performance Centre

Connecting the existing College grounds with the new Sporting Excellence Health and Wellbeing Centre, will be the new music facility. This will be an aesthetically pleasing building that relates to its surroundings. With a streetscape focus it potentially shares the internal music environment with external performance opportunities and community use.
