Fifth gen­er­a­tion mile­stone

Napier Courier - - NEWS -

Is­abella is not only the youngest child of Po­lice Min­is­ter and Napier MP Stu­art Nash’s four chil­dren, but is also the fifth gen­er­a­tion of her fam­ily to at­tend Napier Cen­tral School. Is­abella fol­lows in the foot­steps of four pre­vi­ous gen­er­a­tions, start­ing with her great great grand­mother, who was a first-day pupil back when the school opened in 1878. Stu­art, who ac­com­pa­nied Is­abella to school on Mon­day, says he clearly re­mem­bers his first day at Napier Cen­tral when Rob Lee, still a close friend and the best man at his wed­ding, greeted him at the class­room door and showed him his seat.

“There are a num­ber of mem­o­ries and events that un­for­tu­nately I miss as I am away in Wellington for most of the week, but Ella’s first day of school is very def­i­nitely a mile­stone that I was never go­ing to miss,” Stu­art says.

Start­ing school is a mile­stone for most of us, but for Is­abella Nash, this Mon­day was ex­tra spe­cial.
