Until 5 Dec - Pilgrimage
Goodbye Robyn Giles! In this last issue of our newsletter we would like to bid a final farewell to Robyn Giles, and express our thanks for the support and kindness she has offered to our students during the last 2 years. We wish her all the best with her future plans!
The Rugby World Cup may be over (and ours!) but Kiwi’s passion for the sport never fades. Pilgrimage is a light box photography exhibition. The photographers move beyond the game itself, to look at the ways rugby permeates our lives, landscapes and national identity; something we have all witnessed firsthand this year! Until 5 Dec, Courtenay Place Park. Free!
