’40 Years On’ Photo – Monday 29 May


Photo: Previous Principal, Richard Campbell, helps current Principal, Gregor Fountain, identify foundation students and staff members in the original whole-school photograph of 1977

Forty years after the foundation students and staff of Paraparaumu College were photographed together, Paraparaumu College is planning another whole school photograph.  “We want to mark the 40th anniversary of the College and we thought having another photo would be a great way of capturing the changes which have happened in education, the student body and our campus over the past 40 years” explained Principal, Gregor Fountain.  The College is working with Wellington photographer, Simon Hoyle and his team to organise the photograph.

Opportunities for former and students and staff to return to their old school and meet with current staff and students are being organised for later in the year.
