Whitikahu School is 100 years old and the celebrations are in full flight.
This Saturday a ceremony will be held, attended by over 200 people. Many of the families have been connected to the school for two to four generations.
The students will put on a Jump Jam show as well as a parade to reflect the history of the area over the past 100 years. Speaking of which, there will also be a number of interesting historical displays on view around the school.
The school’s oldest ex-pupil, who attended in 1934, will be there, along with Waikato National MP Lindsay Tisch and Waikato District Council deputy mayor Dynes Fulton.
Last week, a special grandparents’ day was held, which was attended by more than 70 grandparents. They had morning tea and shared their early school day memories with the children. A good time was had by all.
