Rebekah Robinson nee Weavers
Blue House, 1984-1988
Rebekah loved choir, creative writing and gymnastics, and is still in touch with many alumni including best friends Hilary Ingle (nee Croy), Rachel Wilkins-McLay, and Diana Philip (nee Shanks). Her favourite teachers were Keith Gunn, Roderick Lonsdale, Pamela Edsall, Lynne Judkins and Julie Morrow, though many more made a positive impact. Rebekah lives in Brisbane, Australia with hubby & two kids, all of whom are taller than she is. A former school chaplain, Rebekah now freelances as a singer and graphic designer.
Elfleda was at college from 1979-1983 and a member of Green House. She was involved in netball, volleyball and athletics.
Amongst her most memorable moments was the thrill of developing her own photographs for her photography class.
Loyal to the end, she refuses to name friends she got into trouble with!
Her favourite teachers were Mr Lynn, Mr Faith and typing teacher Norma Tait, who helped her get her first job.
After school, Elfleda moved to Wellington and was a secretary in a travel agency. She became a travel consultant and account manager. She now manages Whitcoulls in Ashburton.
She says she would take studying more seriously if she could go back in time.
Elfleda and her husband Pat have two children, Josh and Shanaia, who have also attended college.
Gemma was at college from 2011-2016 and in Green House.
She played netball for the school and was head girl in her final year, a role she was proud to fulfil. Teachers and staff who made an impact on her included Mrs Bowis, Mrs Tyrell and Ms Ferguson.
She left school to pursue a career as a primary school teacher and is currently at university.
