The First Years take over Dunedin's main street

A few thousand students marched down Dunedin's main street on Tuesday night, in the annual "First Day Parade and Toga Party".

New sheets from the beds of first year Otago University students were fashioned into a range of Toga styles... the serious ones completing the look with a pair or sandals and a leafy head wreath.

The 2006 Toga Parade began at the Dental School, travelling along George Street to finish at Dunedin's Octagon, where the new scarfies were welcomed by Mayor Peter Chin.

A movie & lesson in Otago chanting followed, before the infamous Toga Party at the University Union...
