Reg­is­ter now for FAHS 95th com­mem­o­ra­tion

The Tribune (NZ) - - NEWS - VIC­TO­RIA CRAFAR

Feild­ing High School’s 95th cel­e­bra­tions are tak­ing place over three days from March 12.

Or­gan­is­ers say the oc­ca­sion will al­low stu­dents from the 1950s through to the 1970s to gather to­gether with their peers once again be­fore the school’s cen­te­nary in 2021.

Old Pupil’s As­so­ci­a­tion mem­ber Don Hog­gard says all past stu­dents will be wel­come.

‘‘The rea­son for this cel­e­bra­tion is that some old pupils feel it may be dif­fi­cult to at­tend the 100th so let’s get to­gether for the 95th,’’ Don says.

An ‘‘ex­cit­ing yet sim­ple’’ cel­e­bra­tion pro­gramme has been planned, and it will be some­what of a theatre-themed din­ner on the Satur­day night, with the cur­rent school drama depart­ment putting on a spe­cial show.

‘‘There will be am­ple op­por­tu­nity to mix with old-time school friends over lunch, din­ner and while tour­ing the school, school hos­tel and school farm,’’ Don says.

Reg­is­tra­tion forms avail­able from the FAHS of­fice. See: face­­ingHigh-School, un­der ‘events’.

The FAHS 90th birth­day re­union in 2011 saw for­mer pupils Austin Hay­ward and Betty Wit­ton cut the cel­e­bra­tory cake.
