Description

Linwood College (formerly Linwood High School) has a proud history stretching back over 50 years. Linwood is particularly well known for its strengths in music and the other performing arts, for providing a well rounded education with many different learning opportunities, for its strong pastoral care of students, and for its national reputation as an innovator in developing and providing new learning programmes for students. Linwood attracts students from many different walks of life from throughout the eastern side of Christchurch city. Some students travel from seaside suburbs whilst others are located closer to the city centre. A good bus network provides transport to and from school, and enables students to quickly reach the city centre, community facilities or the suburbs. We are proud to be a diverse school catering for students from different ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. Approximately 60% of students are of European background, 25% identify as Maori and 9% as Pacific Islanders. We welcome the increasing number of families who have come to Linwood College as part of the Christchurch rebuild team.

Hello to linwood college past pupils, After serious deliberation by the Board of Trustee, it is with deep regret that we announce the cancellation of our 60th reunion at Linwood College for labour weekend, due to the low level of participation. We are saddened not to be able to get together this year and have some fun and fellowship with past pupils and their families. For those who have already made payment, “thank you” for your participation and support. Refunds will be issued shortly and we hope this does not create any inconvenience. Thanks
