The FDMC Foundation Launch

After a lot of background work we are about to launch The FDMC Foundation. There has been a lot of discussion about how we go about getting things underway, and while a Black Tie Gala event would have been fun it has been decided that a lower key launch could be a more appropriate way to kick things off. To that end we will usher the FDMC Foundation into existence on Saturday April 2nd at the College.

The launch will be based around several college sporting events that will be taking place on the day and all old boys are more than welcome to attend. The format is as follows;

Saturday April 2nd

Junior cricket finals on the FDMC Oval
FDMC 2nd XV v Rotorua BHS at Rugby Park No.4

12 - 1pm
BBQ and refreshments (no charge) in the Y13 Hostel Courtyard

Address by FDMC Old Boy and Rhodes Scholar Thomas Hills, and the official launch of the FDMC Foundation.

1 - 2.30pm
FDMC 1st XV v Rotorua BHS on FDMC No 1

1 - 3.30pm
FDMC 1st XI v FDMC Old Boys T20 cricket match for the Brian Vale Bat.

Any old boy wishing to play cricket against the 1st XI should email Sam Barrett at

The FDMC college spirit is sure to be to the fore and it would be great to have as many old boys as possible participate in it. See you there.
