Meeting with Regenerate Christchurch

All students and staff are welcome to join a meeting with Regenerate Christchurch, Wednesday 29 March, 12pm-1.30pm, Undercroft meeting room.

2017 is an exciting year for Christchurch’s regeneration and this meeting is an opportunity to hear more and get involved. Regenerate Christchurch is the body charged with leading the regeneration of the residential red zone, and working to revitalise the central city and New Brighton.

Regenerate works according to practices of ‘co-creation’ and is focused this year on planning futures for the red zone, taking account of community aspirations, economic and environmental opportunities, and climate change.

The meeting will be led by Ivan Iafeta, Regenerate’s CEO, and Rob Kerr, its manager for the red zone. They are keen to develop good links with UC, its students and staff.

Let your heart soar and pop in to Central Library , Puaka-James Hight and have your say!  The poll is easy to do, just choose the idea you like most and pop a tiddlywink in the jar!



Cantab ‘Doo’ – Get your tickets

People often ask me what defines a ‘Cantab’, so I am going to tell you what a Cantab’ is in a very simple way; a ‘Cantab’ is a Legend, a local legend. We are known for the unique ability of taking the Crusaders footy game to a whole new level, through our legendary presence at the mighty AMI Stadium.

On the 17th of March 2017 our very own Crusaders will be taking on our fierce rivals, The Blues. The Cantabs will be marching 600 local legends into AMI Stadium to get behind our men in red, with the simple aim of having a truly epic time. We will be kicking off the evening with a bit of a pre ‘Doo’ at ‘Fundry’ (This is funny because I replaced the first part of ‘Foundry’ with ‘Fun’) and thereafter we will load the troops into buses and head to battle against the ‘Jaffas’. Once we teach the Blues how to play rugby, we will celebrate with a St Patricks day after party to remember at The Foundry!

If this sounds like your kind of ‘Doo’ then be sure to buy yourself a ticket from Dash tickets, and we will see you at the Foundry ready with our red and black overalls, face paint and flags! We know you want to become a Cantabs Legend!

Up the Crusaders!
