BAgrSc 1968 – 50 Year Reunion

We have had a very good response to our previous correspondence with over 35 people indicating they will come. If you are in contact with other classmates please remind them to follow up this correspondence and register ASAP but before 23 February 2018.

We believe we have the makings of a great reunion and it will be good to see as many of our old class as possible attend, including staying at the Commodore Airport Hotel. The feedback from another recent reunion (BAgrSc & BHortSc 1967 reunion, 17-19 February 2017) with a similar programme is that they all thoroughly enjoyed their reunion weekend so please make your registration now and don’t just leave it till later.

We encourage you to register as soon as possible as this will help to coordinate all the resources and catering.


We envisage that some attendees will want to stay together as a group so we have made arrangements for this at the Commodore Airport Hotel (449 Memorial Ave, Christchurch). The cost is $230 including breakfast & GST per room, per night (for 1 or 2 people). There is a free shuttle service to and from the airport for any staying guests. Full details can be found at or Phone +64 33588 129

All those who wish to stay at the Commodore Airport Hotel need to make their own booking directly with the Hotel (not online) please phone +64 33588 129 and advise the booking reference: 38990613998. There are only 10 rooms reserved (last of the cheaper rooms left in the hotel as their busy period. Business rooms from $278 are also available) so we encourage you to do this ASAP and before 23 February as rooms will no longer be held after this date.

Alternatively, you can book at other Christchurch hotels or motels of your choice, or the below listed motels are 'side by side' each other and are only 500m from the Commodore Airport Hotel.  The motel managers own both of the motels and they advised that they can offer several sleeping arrangements including a house that sleeps 8, or other sharing configurations (so book together with others attending) to help keep the cost down.
