  • NZ Deaf Sports Convention 1955 – Christchurch

Rugby Park in Christchurch hosted the New Zealand Deaf Sports Convention in 1955. A very popular annual event, bringing the Deaf community together from all over New Zealand. Events are varied, including shot put, relay sprint (North vs South), long jump, and valiant attempts at the triple-jump. Some impressive uniforms, including a very dapper spectator! On the Friday prior to the Convention was the formal 75th celebrations of van Asch, where three hundred former pupils gathered to celebrate the landmark anniversary for the school.
