Tucked into rolling farmland between Cambridge and Matamata on the Buckland Road – to the east of here – it is now a significant tourist attraction. That the fictional Shire is located among those hills in which I grew up

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.
Written in June last year and presented yesterday the 17 March 2010 to Cambridge Men’s Probus Club here is the text of Dad’s Memories presentation.

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.

With all the discussion lately about the origins of the French Pass Road in Cambridge maybe a reference to the French Pass in the Marlborough Sounds is appropriate. It had been our long-held ambition to visit the ‘other’ French Pass from the one here in Cambridge on which we have lived for many years. And in March of this year we did just that.
French Pass is situated in the Marlborough Sounds, at the top of the South Island. To get there, we turned off SH 6 between Nelson and Blenheim at the Rai Valley sign- post. The 64 km drive to French Pass is truly spectacular. The narrow and winding road passes through dense bush and seaside settlements. It is sealed to Elaine Bay. The remaining section is unsealed, travelling through open farmland with wandering stock, cattle stops, loose metal, dust and corrugations. It is not for the faint hearted. We were however, rewarded with magnificent sea views in all directions including the French Pass itself and D’Urville Island to the North. It is a two hour journey each way.

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.

This year’s Sharps Early crop is lighter than 2007’s bumper one. Far and away my favourite plum – I have known it all my life – harvested, as it is, at this special time of the year. Our tree is a cutting from the tree at Whitehall. Dad is still making relish from fruit frozenContinue reading “Ripening plums”
