Mormons admit closure of Church College will be a loss

Mormons admit closure of Church College will be a loss – 30 Jun 2006 – National News:

The only Mormon school in New Zealand is closing because leaders say the church’s resources could be better used elsewhere.

Elders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said yesterday the 700-student Church College at Temple View in Hamilton would shut down in stages from next year to 2009.

United States-based Elder Paul Johnson told the Herald it was decided to close the school because New Zealand’s education system was “one of the strongest in the world”.

  1. That’s quite interesting. I served my mission in Australia, so I served with quite a few missionaries from New Zealand, and many of them had gone to Church College (college being high school, not university)

    I always thought it was kind of cool that they had a church high school there since I had always wondered why we didn’t have any private Church high schools in the US.

    I think it makes sense that they are shutting it down, but I imagine a lot of members there won’t be happy with the decision.
