Adventure School’s 25th birthday marked
Adventure School will be celebrating its 25th birthday with an open day on Friday.
The Whitby school opened in 1988 as a satellite school to nearby Discovery, but numbers grew quickly.
Adventure School was officially opened by the Governor-General, Sir Paul Reeves, in November 1989.
Over the years classrooms have been added, along with a hall, playgrounds and library.
From 10.30am on Friday a tour of the school will be hosted by senior pupils, to see the children going about their normal day.
As well, there will also be a photo display in the school hall.
At 1.30pm a special assembly will be held, with performances including kapa haka, dancing and singing.
An afternoon tea will follow at 2.45pm.
