Centennial Newsletter – 23 March 2021

From humble beginnings……

1921…… the first photos taken and the first building at Kohimarama School.

Welcome to our first update of 2021, our centennial year!  To kick things off we thought we’d share this photo of the first building constructed for the opening of the school in 1921. It contained just one room and was overcrowded from the start, having been built for 50 children with 54 enrolled on the first day… Our roll continues to grow with the school finishing 2020 with close to 600 students.

Over the next 6 months we will bring you monthly updates on what’s planned as part of the celebrations on the 11th September. Preparations are now in full swing for a full day of activities followed by a fundraising gala dinner that evening.

We are still looking to reach out to as many alumni as possible, and would love to hear your stories, photos and memories too. If you have anything you think you may be of interest that you’d be happy to share, please get in touch!

Make sure to pass this on to everyone you know who attended or has had a connection with Kohimarama School so that they can register for future newsletters and updates.
