Naming Cambridge New Zealand again and again and again

Crossing Karapiro Hydro Dam

We are at the western lights, on the Maungatautari side of Lake Karapiro, waiting for opposing traffic to clear the one lane that tops the hydro dam so we can cross to the Karapiro side and Karapiro Hydro Village. Though this is not the purpose of this photograph. I’ve talked about the concept Township before.  And of course we are launching forth into that disagreeable season of the Big Little Town or is it Little Big Town promotion that Fieldays inflicts upon Cambridge once a year. Grr.

Welcome to Cambridge New Zealand – The Boatshed Café

Welcome to Cambridge New Zealand

The Boatshed Café

The Boatshed Café relaunched under new ownership today. Richard and Robyn Clark have split their ten year old business to concentrate on Boatshed Kayaks with Katie Shick coming in as the new owner of  The Boatshed Café. (sorry folks! I may have left out a couple of steps here – but the point being The Boatshed Café & Kayaks is now two businesses). The Boatshed Café overlooking Lake Karapiro from the western shore is a gem that sits opposite the 500-600 metre mark of the 2000 metre Karapiro rowing course – the start line is clearly visible from the property. In the photograph we have from the left; Abiy, Katharina, Sheryl and Katie (Hydro Majestic & Ruby’s Cafe). Cool!

21 Amber Lane, Karapiro, Cambridge 3494, New Zealand +64 7 827 8286. Take SHI south of Cambridge – past the turn off to Karapiro Hydro Village & Mobil Karapiro, right into Gorton Road, left into Amber Lane – you’ll find it!

Welcome to Cambridge New Zealand – Karapiro School crew #2

Welcome to Cambridge New Zealand

Room 1 Karapiro School Jacob, Joseph, Rebecca and Cameron
Four senior Karapiro School students; Jacob, Joseph, Rebecca and Cameron pose for a photo this afternoon, Wednesday, the 27th of October 2010 with Room 1‘s excellent WRCH2010 project. Not only showing support for the countries they are following – the Czech Republic, Great Britain, Germany and Australia – the clocks on the right show the time zones of each country (I do wonder, though, why the Australian clock has stopped!) – but a teaching moment, as well, exploring team work, with nifty references to rowing through the concepts friendliness, honestycommitment, responsibility, excellence and confidence. Most impressive.

In September 2010 the same cloth – with updated embroidery – will serve a similar purpose at the Karapiro, Whitehall, Taotaoroa and Karapiro Hydro Schools 125th Jubilee.

Bullrush or kingasini

We are thinking about school around here today – for a couple of reasons. Dad is writing up his memories and I have been involved for the past six weeks or so in preparatory meetings for the Karapiro, Whitehall, Taotaoroa and Karapiro Hydro district schools 125th Jubilee we will celebrate in September next year. This week we launched the website which will be used to publicize the celebrations. Dad, my sister and brother and I attended Whitehall primary; my mother went to Taotaoroa. The history of all four schools – two of which no longer exist – are bound up with one another. Check out the website if you are interested.

Dad (at Whitehall in the 1930s) asks me about the word kingasini. Yes, we played bullrush or kingasini in the 1950s and 1960s – at Whitehall (I recall we used the two names interchangeably – or were there two variations each having their own name – a vague memory is saying yes). I have a photograph here which shows the exact place we used to play it – the large bare patch in the lower portion of this photo – an area that was later grassed.

Whitehall School Archive

I can find three references to Kingasini: Tommy Kapai‘s delightful 29th September 2008 Bay of Plenty Times article Ding-dong of bullrush can teach our kids plenty (Omanu School). John Saunders’ Memories from Onehunga Primary School… on Old Friends and  Kitty Arnold (Whelan) Memories from St Pius X School (Glen Innes)… also on Old Friends. Wikipedia mentions bullrush as an antipodean variant of the British game Bulldogs and provides a whole lot of other names but not Kingasini – I wonder where the name came from?

From typewriter to digital whiteboard

Twenty-Five or so years ago when my Mum – Phyllis Jeans – gathered the material for Centenary 100 Years of Education in the Taotaoroa Whitehall Karapiro Districts. 1885 – 1985 [ISBN 0-473-00307-4] the manuscript was typed (by Lesley Sewell) and set again for the printing presses at Cambridge Independent. We on the other hand have access to all the current digital tools enabling us to share and edit documents from home – view them online at meetings and share much more readily and rapidly to a greater audience the fruits of our research and planning. Above the Karapiro, Whitehall, Taotaoroa and Karapiro Hydro Schools’ 125th Jubilee committee meets at Karapiro School this Thursday evening the 4th of June 2009. The 125th Jubilee is being held in September 2010.
