Matamata Chronicle - - News - By KA­T­RINA LINTONBON

On Fe­bru­ary 4, 1963, Firth School opened with a roll of 214.

Firth School marks its 50th birthday next year and peo­ple who have had any as­so­ci­a­tion with the school, whether it be as a past stu­dent or staff mem­ber, are be­ing in­vited to join in a week­end of birthday cel­e­bra­tions.

The Firth School 50th ju­bilee cel­e­bra­tion will take place on Fri­day, April 5 and Satur­day, April 6, 2013.

On April 5 there will be an open day at the school from 11.30am.

This will give past students the chance to see the changes that have taken place dur­ing the last 50 years.

A meet and min­gle evening

will take place on the Fri­day evening.

Satur­day evening will give peo­ple the op­por­tu­nity to catch up with old bud­dies. There will be live mu­sic and fab­u­lous food.

There is a $15 reg­is­tra­tion fee, $30 for the Fri­day evening meet and min­gle only, $60 for the Satur­day evening only or $100 to at­tend both days.

If more than 500 reg­is­tra­tions are re­ceived be­fore Jan­uary 2013, the ju­bilee cel­e­bra­tions will be held solely at Firth School.

Mem­bers of the or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee are hop­ing to get as many peo­ple along as pos­si­ble and be­lieve it will be the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to catch up with old mates.

To col­lect your reg­is­tra­tion form go to the Firth School re­cep­tion area, phone 888 7396 or go on­line to firth.school.nz and click on 50th Re­union Up­dates.
