50th Jubilee, Oaklands School 2014

Oaklands School just had it’s 50th Jubilee. They planted  a Kowhai tree to celebrate. They also made a special gate called a commemorative gate.It has the numbers 1964 & 2014 on it and it sits right outside Jarrow Place Way leading into the school.  

The Jubilee came with all sorts of things like the production 'WHO CARES, WE DO!' Archives and memories were displayed and we performed a Kapa Haka performance, and there was an open day for people from 50 years ago who could see how the school has changed in the last 50 years.  They had a massive cake with the new Oaklands logo on it, saying 1964 to 2014.
Let’s just say the Oaklands School Jubilee was awesome! I wonder what will happen in another 50 years at the 100th jubilee.
