KWTJubilee – putting up the marquee. It was going to be a masterpiece but then it began to rain – cold rain – so just a snippet.

This is a digitized version of CENTENARY 100 Years of Education in the Taotaoroa Whitehall Karapiro Districts. 1885 — 1985 researched and complied by Phyllis Jeans, typed by Lesley Sewell and published in October 1985.
During June and July we will hold working bees (at Karapiro School) to bring together stories and photos – especially, though not exclusively, about the last 25 years. Using the 1985 Centennial book as the basis we intend producing a Second Edition with updated material. We have yet to decide what form this will take – a book or perhaps more likely a ‘virtual book’ on DVD. We are in the process of digitizing the 1985 book so it can be integrated with the new material.
The registration form is here. For more information visit our website.
Registration forms will be available this coming week for the Karapiro, Whitehall, Taotaoroa & Karapiro Hydro Schools’ 125th Jubilee in September. For more information go to the Jubilee website. A big special thanks to Karen May.

Just after 11 o’clock on Saturday the 5th of October 1985 this table cloth was used for the centennial cake cutting celebrating 100 years of education in Whitehall, Karapiro and Taotaoroa districts. 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. For more information please visit the website.

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).
In September of next year, on the 24 – 26th of September 2010 to be exact, the 125th Jubilee celebration of education at Karapiro, Whitehall, Taotaoroa and Karapiro Hydro Schools is to be held. There is a website where you can find out more and perhaps get involved in the planning yourself. http://125kthw.wordpress.com/

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.
