Tēnā Koutou Katoa,
Ko te Amorangi ki mua, ko te Hāpai o ki muri
Tīhei Mauri Ora!
Mo te taha o tōku tīma piriwheke, nau mai piki mai ki Te Kāreti Tamatane o Te Whanganui-a-Tara.
On behalf of the Wellington College Prefect Team of 2023, I would like to sincerely welcome you all not only to our school – but the brotherhood of 1,800 boys which make up this incredibly special community. As a year group, you will all find your own places to thrive within the school but your commitment to learn, laugh, grow and eventually lead together will no doubt be the defining factor about your College experience.
I wish you all the best for the year ahead and look forward to meeting you all.
Tiaho te ao, Tiaho te ao mārama,
