Ngā mihi mō tō manaakitanga mai

Yesterday morning we said goodbye to Helen Bergin and Derek Tovey who are retiring after two decades teaching Theology at the University of Auckland (as well as at the Catholic Institute of Theology in Helen’s Case, and Saint John’s College in Derek’s).

Both were involved in the Auckland Consortium for Theological Education, became the School of Theology at the University of Auckland in 2003.

As we launch into a BA Major in Theological and Religious Studies within the Faculty of Arts, we hope we can build something worthwhile on the foundations that Helen, Derek and many others have already laid.

Thanks to Therese Kiely and other students for the hard work – during exam time, too – that went into getting this farewell ready.
