ANZAC Service

On behalf of University of Canterbury Students’ Association, I would like to invite you to our ANZAC Service on Wednesday the 25th of April at 10.00am.

The sense of unity that is widely felt on ANZAC Day is important to acknowledge, and together we can commemorate a day of such special significance to New Zealand, within our community.

All are welcome to attend; for us, this is an important occasion for students, staff and the wider community to come together.

The Service will take place on the Quad between Matariki and Puaka-James Hight Building followed by light refreshments at the Okeover Lawn.

Kind Regards
Josh Proctor
UCSA President

Thursdays in Black re-launch – 22 March

Being safe on campus, in public or in your home is everyone’s right, regardless of your race, ethnicity, sexuality, gender identity, class, disability (visible or not), religious affiliation, political views, or even the way you choose to dress. 

Thursdays in Black is a national student/whanau movement that works towards a world free of rape and violence. #TIB campaigns for campuses to be safe for everyone.

The UCSA has teamed up with the UC Thursdays in Black Society for the 2018 relaunch BBQ. Head down to C-Block lawn from 11am on Thursday 22 March for a free sausage, a few tunes and a special  guest speaker.

Come for a chat, with the people dressed in BLACK. They will happily provide information about the campaign and how you can get involved. We want to hear what you want, and give you information about all the  support services available on our campus and in the Christchurch area.

Make sure you wear BLACK and come along to be a part of positive change on campus.

Class of 1987 fundraising for new UCSA building

Alumni who were at UC around 1987 are holding a 30 year reunion on 10 and 11 November to fundraise for the new UCSA building. The reunion includes a tour of UC’s new music and classics facilities in the Chemistry building at the Arts Centre, and a cocktail party in the Great Hall at the Arts Centre. Find out more about the event and how to get tickets here.

Those who can’t make the reunion, but would  like to support the UCSA building campaign can still take part by participating in an online silent auction that the Class of 1987 has organised. Several organisations and individuals have donated some wonderful prizes in support of the UCSA. These include holiday accommodation, flights, whale watching for two, swimming with dolphins, helicopter rides and much more. Anyone can take part in the silent auction – find out more at https://www.32auctions.com/30yearish2017
