One of the casualties of Covid-19 last year was the Blockhouse Bay School Centennial. Originally planned for March 2020, the event had to be postponed as we headed into lockdown, disappointing lots of people and spoiling the preparations that the children had made to welcome back ex-pupils, staff and parents.
We are very pleased to confirm, though, that we are full speed ahead for our 101st celebrations which will be held on April 9th and 10th of this year.
At 10.30am on Friday 9th, we are inviting our guests to attend a short welcome in Te Whau, our school hall/performing arts centre, before our school ambassadors lead tours around the school. We expect that our visitors will be surprised by the changes that have taken place in teaching and learning since they were at school as well as the many property upgrades that have taken place.
After lunch, we are planning a series of performances for parents and visitors to show off the children's hard work in preparing for these.
From 7.00-9.30pm, any and all ex-pupils, staff and parents are invited to a mix and mingle over food and a drink in our newly refurbished Te Manawa.
From 11.00am on Sunday 11th, attendees are invited to come along for school tours once again before our official welcome in Te Whau at 12.30pm. After this, our visitors can either take part in a school tour or meet with other attendees to reminisce and talk about the 'old days'.
To register or for more information please contact the office on 6279940, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or go to the school's website www.blockhousebay.school.nz and click on the information link, scrolling down to the Centennial tab.
We are looking forward to hosting lots of people for this important and fun event.
