2024 Squad Announcement

Last week we hosted the 2024 Annual NZMOC Training Camp, which was a great success. Michael did a fantastic job as camp director, and the students all had a lot of fun and got a lot out of it, despite it being slightly shorter than normal. Thank you to the generous sponsorship of Jane Street. I am very proud of all the students, as even getting to the camp is a fantastic achievement.
