Our students lost in the Great War

Our Information and Records Management team found this document in 2010 while looking for some records related to the University’s high country lands. It is a list of Canterbury College students who laid down their lives in the Great War.

This Roll of Honour shows the degrees of the graduates marked against their names.

The list is mainly correct but letters attached to the roll suggest a few names were missed off the roll. One such name was William Carnegie Lyall who had passed through the College and was killed in action in 1918.

Overall winner Millie McKelvie’s entry

The entré Napkin Challenge has wrapped up for this year and the winners have been chosen! For those that don’t know, entré is a student-run company at UC and CPIT that inspires students to excel in the business world.

The Napkin Challenge is an easy competition that requires students to simply think of an idea and jot it down on a napkin. This year, the judging panel consisted of Rachel Wright (UC Innovators), Sarah Platt (UCSA President) and Juan Pellegrino (CPIT Business School).

Congratulations to the overall winner, Millie McKelvie, with her napkin titled I Always Miss a Patch, where she came up with the idea of a spraying booth to make sure you get sunblock all over without missing anywhere. Millie won an iPad Air and a cake from the amazing Cakes by Anna.

The winners of the other categories, who each won $100, are:

  • Most innovative: Simon Parkes
  • Most feasible: Sophie Gray
  • Most beneficial to students: Hannah Marshall and Jess Wedlake
  • Funniest: George McDonald

Next up on the entré agenda is the massive $85K Challenge, the most prestigious event on their calendar. The competition offers entrants the chance to develop key business and presentation skills while refining their idea into a viable business over the course of the year. This year the Apps Challenge has been merged with the $85K Challenge, so now your innovative ideas for apps can have the chance to be developed into real business ventures too.

ENTRIES ARE NOW OPEN! Submit an entry online explaining the basics of your business idea. All entrants will attend an exclusive design-thinking workshop with prizes up for grabs. Entries close on May 1st at 5pm.

Make sure you follow entré on Facebook and check out the website for more details and to keep up to date with all of their events, including free business workshops!
