Easter 2011 marked the Centenary of the laying of the foundation stone of the Chapel, subsequently built by the Old Boys and wider school community as a gift to the new school, at the request of retiring Headmaster, Walter Empson. The Centenary of its completion and Dedication was celebrated in 2012.

The Chapel remains a special place not only for Old Boys and Girls of the Collegiate School, parents and friends of the school but also the wider Whanganui Community. Presently, there are regular Services held there during the week and on Sundays.

Numerous community events also take place in the building, as well as the nationally recognised Whanganui Festival of Pipe-Organ Music, based at the school, which since 2004 has routinely brought many notable International world-class performers to the city and school.
