April 12 was a busy meeting at the T&C. After dinner Jayde Wison and Joshua Hancock who the 2021 Head Girl and Boy at Cromwell College, shared their experiences at Outward Bound with us. 
Both attended the course at different times but were equally empowered by the experience and the life skills gained.
They are both smart young leaders who have a clear understanding of the leadership responsibilites of being head boy and girl at Cromwell College. They are proud to be part odf an awesome leadership team this year and are striving to lead the students to be The Best They Can Be.

Following on from this Hilary introduced Paul Allison
He is a self-confessed sports fanatic whose life has centred around sport. As an athlete, Paul competed in 27 marathons and represented New Zealand for eight years during the 1980’s and 1990’s. A little known fact Hilary shared about Paul is that he wrote the Speight’s bottle top questions in 1998. He was resident radio rugby commentator at Carisbrook from 1993 to 2011 and is currently the voice of Dunedin’s Forsyth Barr Stadium where he has called many famous Highlanders and All Black victories. He was the Chief Executive of  Sport  Otago and Chief Executive of the Central Lakes Trust.  
As well as testing our sports knowledge...he shared many memories of his times in these roles especially some very amusing anecdotes of times with a thirsty Colin Mead. These days Paul is based in Central Otago, and we were well entertained by his passionate recounting of life amongst great sporting moments.
