Adams House Centenary - Labour Weekend 2017

Established in 1917, Adams House has been called home for around 10 per cent of the School roll and continues to "lead to rest". From the original house with large dorm rooms and what could be described as "basic living conditions" to the modern, "Harakeke Hilton", which now houses up to 135 boarders in first class facilities. Adams House has seen huge changes over time but one thing that has remained constant is its production of many fine young men and wonderful characters.

Labour Weekend 2017 is your chance to come back and enjoy some great times with your old school mates. Check out some of the marquee events below and be in quick to book your place using the shopping cart. Based on pre registration, tickets will sell out faster than an Ed Sheeran concert, so be in quick!
