The Official School Opening

 

The School was officially opened on Sunday, June 22, 2008 after a formal ceremony held at the Seventh-day Adventist Church next door. A last minute decision was made to bring the formalities indoors after a deluge of rain prevented the use of the maquee which has been pitched on the school grounds for the occasion. Guests speakers included Mr Bob Clarkson, Member of Parliament for Tauranga and Pastor Eddie Tupai, Chairman of the New Zealand Schools Association,  The School was officially declared open after a short ceremony by Tauranga mayor, Mr Stewart Crosby, a mass balloon release by students and an inspection of the new facilities by all those in attendance.
