School Reunion


A reunion of old pupils of the Makaraka School was held before the time of demolition of the old school which is being replaced by a new building. Many happy days were recalled.
Corry Cameron, Alec Trafford, Mick Williams, Sam Pardoe, Fred Bousfield, Jesse Dowell and Harry Lange recall old times in front of the old school. Their ages range from 73 to 91.


Warren Coker, 5, the youngest pupil, talks to oldest old boy present, Sam Pardoe.


Lawrence Fuller started at the school in 1915, and his son Gerald (right) in 1945.
