The Liston College Advancement Office has been established to engage with Alumni and the local community with a view to generating income streams to provide for the unmet needs of Liston College, and to support it in its pastoral, academic, sporting and cultural scholarships, annual grants and other distributions.

One of the Advancement Office’s first tasks is to compile an up-to-date Alumni database of former students, staff, teachers, friends, parents and business people, to enable us to communicate and engage with the whole Liston Community more effectively. To this end we would appreciate you taking a few moments to complete this form providing your current contact details and interests.

Liston College has established itself as West Auckland’s leading Catholic boys’ school. It enjoys high levels of academic, sporting and musical achievement. Liston men are developed as leaders, who confidently take their place in society, and contribute greatly to New Zealand’s success.

Liston students have become Members of the New Zealand Order of Merit, Bishops, great Medical & Business leaders and sporting greats including All Blacks. 

The Advancement Office will work to ensure the same opportunities exist for future generations of Liston boys, who through their time at Liston, become leaders. We are grateful for the support of our past present and future Liston communities in developing and contributing to the growth of the College.

  • We encourage each boy always to show love and service to his family, his College, and his total community;
