Mata­mata Col­lege is a year into its work pre­par­ing for its cen­te­nary which it plans for March 2018. That’s 100 years of de­liv­er­ing ed­u­ca­tion to the com­mu­nity and is cer­tainly some­thing work cel­e­brat­ing. The col­lege is ap­peal­ing for any uni­forms, school books, tro­phies or other mem­o­ra­bilia which it might be able to show for the spe­cial event next year. Over the next 12 months we’re aim­ing to present a se­ries of sto­ries talk­ing to former stu­dents of the col­lege, look­ing at their time at the school and how it’s shaped their ca­reer and family life. We’re keen to hear sug­ges­tions you might have for the se­ries. This week we also spoke to the col­lege’s head boy, Kaleb Reid, about his work with the newly-formed Mata­mataPi­ako Youth Vol­un­teer Am­bas­sadors group. They plan a num­ber of ini­tia­tives for young peo­ple in the district and the first is to host speaker Mike King, who will present at the district’s three col­leges and at a com­mu­nity meet­ing in Mata­mata.
