Dr Vincent O'Malley visits

Arnika Hazelwood —

During Term 3 students enjoyed a visit from author Dr Vincent O'Malley.

Dr O'Malley is the author of a number of major works on New Zealand's colonial history including "The Great War for New Zealand." The visit was organised by Bridget Williams Books along with our Social Sciences Department.

The talk provided a rare opportunity for our students to hear and discuss at first hand the issues around events increasingly seen as central and formative in our society with a leading scholar in the field whose work has inspired petitions, parliamentary committee inquiries and a new currency to exploring our colonial past and its legacies.
