Nelson College Front Field Upgrade

The Nelson College Old Boys Association has committed to upgrading the college's Front Field.

The Front Field is the showpiece and defining feature of the College grounds. We want a field that we are proud of and that is easily maintained. 

This is your chance to invest in the future of your college. We are giving you the opportunity to "Adopt a Square" on the Front Field. A typical rugby field has around 8,750 square metres, which, at $20 per Square, will reach our goal of $185,000. And then there's a maintenance goal.

With your help as an Adopter, we know we can meet this target. We have committed to the Headmaster and Board of Trustees that this upgrade will be completed at no cost to the college. 

Thank you to all those who have Adopted a Square so far, we are on our way to achieving our goal, but we still need your help to get there!


To Adopt a Square please follow this link below and complete the form.
