The Waitaki Boys' High School Old Boys' Association is standing strong behind its alma mater as the school deals with roll challenges.
Association president Russell Gawn said while there was little members could do to help in terms of management, the school had the association's full support following the news it was losing staff in the face of a predicted steep drop in the roll next year.
''As far as we're concerned, we're supporting the school and hoping that the process will come along and take its course ... it's very hard to do anything else,'' Mr Gawn said.
''We'll back the school all the way and ... I think it's positive and it's just a matter of working through the issues, rebuilding and getting numbers back up. You've got to get the community confidence.'' Click here for full article
