Kaikorai Primary School 150th Reunion
Labour weekend 25-27 October 2019
Welcome: We would like to extend a warm welcome to all past pupils, staff, Board of Trustees and School Committee members to the Kaikorai Primary School 150th Reunion. It will be a time to celebrate the past and look forward to the future as the school will be about to embark on its third iteration. From the original blue stone buildings, to the current wooden Nelson Block classrooms, the "third" Kaikorai School will be a modern and inviting space for children to learn in.
The money raised from the reunion will fund bringing the war memorial back to its former glory. We have engaged the architect to develop some preliminary ideas for the Tyne St entrance and he has suggested we could recreate a near likeness to the original using a light metal material which could be perforated to celebrate the schools rich history. This project is not part of the Ministry of Educations redevelopment plans for the school and therefore will need community support to be successful.
For more information click on the school diagram or this link to the memorial arches section.
