1960 - 1969 Reunion (2021)
As a follow-up to the unfortunate cancellation of the 60th Jubilee, and the rescheduling of the planned easter 2021 event. The two combined functions will be held at Labour weekend, 2021.
- For ex-students "Reunion 1960-1969" to "Celebrate the McPhail era"
- For current and former staff 1960 - 2021
This will be held at Labour weekend, 2021 on Saturday 23rd October.
The event will be restricted to a maximum of 350 due to limited space at The Plymouth International Hotel.
It was felt best to start with the first two decades of ex-pupils due to the fact that in 2035 when the 75th Jubilee will be held they will be aged between 68 and 90.
It is possible that a 1980's and 1990's Reunion (Decades three and four) could be held between 2025-2030.
The 2021 1960-1969 Reunion:
After 2 postponements due to the Covid-19 epidemic Easter 2020 & Easter 2021) it was decided to host a Reunion for the 1960-1979 first two decades to celebrate "The McPhail" era. On 17th August there was a Level 4 nationwide lockdown and on 4th October NZ with the exception of the Auckland region went to Level 2 with a restriction of 100 people maximum at an event. This meant the event was reduced to just ex-students and staff from the 1960-1969 first decade.
This event was held on Saturday 23rd October at The Plymouth Hotel.
The programme was:
|5.00pm||Collect registration tag.|
