The centenary of Knox College was celebrated in Dunedin
yesterday by some of the 6200 people who did a little of their
growing up there.
Up to 500 attended tours, dinners, lunches, banquets and
balls where they reminisced about their time at a college
described as a "jewel in the crown" of both the University of
Otago and the Presbyterian Church.
The college, built to house trainees for the church, now each
year houses 212 students of various religions and
Presbyterian Moderator the Rt Rev Dr Graham Redding reflected
on the college motto "gratia et veritasi", or grace and
truth, which he considered as much a part of the heritage of
the college as its historic buildings.
