Sentimental Sunday: 100 Years of History and Schooling in Okoroire District 1914-2014

This school history was recently received in the Central Auckland Research Centre for our Family History material collection.  It can be found at the shelf mark of 2 NZL SCH WKT.  The book is A4 in size and comprises 108 pages; the back cover has a current colour map of the district on which is marked properties with the name of the (presumably) current owner/occupant.

There are short articles relating to both local history and short family histories accompanied with photographs.  Photographs of ex-pupils attending the reunion have been included as have listings of the school rolls covering the 100 years.  As there was an amalgamation, there is also detail of Tapapa and Kurinui Schools.  Amongst the lists there is a Roll of Honour for World War II, teachers, chairpersons and secretaries.

This book will be of interest to anyone who has links to the area.

This is not the only school history in our collection so do check the catalogue to find out what we may have for your area interest.
