Finding people main objective
Planning for the 150th jubilee of Roxburgh Schools is gaining momentum and organisers are casting their network wide to reach former pupils.
A Facebook page is gathering speed with the younger generation, while long lasting friendships are succeeding in gathering numbers.
Much of the information from the 125th celebrations was still available, with school librarian Marrion Clark having the task of putting names to as many photographs as possible.
‘‘Last time, they just had pieces of paper attached, but now with computer printers it is easier to properly name people and make adjustments.’’ Mrs Clark said.
‘‘We have put different photos out with the school newsletter and got a good response from that. Some of the very early photos will be more difficult.’’
Convenor Teresa Bennett, registration secretary Kelly Findlay, treasurer Raewyn Crossan and secretary Jo Johnston head the hard working committee who are hoping the website, roxburgh schools.co.nz will make it easier for people to register their interest in attending. To be held at Easter 2015, the provisional programme includes registrations and get together Friday, assembly and photos on Saturday , dinner/ dance that night and lunch on Sunday.
