UC Chancellor speaks at WW1 memorial window rededication ceremony

A  rededication ceremony to the UC students and staff who died in WW1 has been held at the Great War Memorial Window in the Arts Centre of Christchurch.

This was the first time visitors were allowed into the Great Hall since the September 2010 earthquake.

Chancellor John Wood spoke of the importance in bearing witness – to remember, reflect and pay respect – to the 235 men who fell in the service of our country.

The Arts Centre of Christchurch was the original home of UC, and the young men who died in WW1 would have studied there.
