Congratulations Marcus Gobald (son of Wiki and Ernst Gobald) who has just completed his first year at Otago University. Below he writes.

“I am a PE student at University of Otago, just completed my first year in the halls. I was a student at Toroa College in a flat with four other male flat mates. This year at my hall, I won the spirit of the year award for having the best “get on with it” attitude and spirit shown at my college. I was also lucky enough to be selected and won the “which hall rules All Blacks Adidas challenge”, winning pride for my hall and $1000 worth of Adidas gear. I am extremely grateful for the funding you provided me, it really helped, not only academic aspects of university life but also eased the pressure of living, away from home.”
