Glorious school days recalled Remember the days: Rangi Laughlan started in 1929 at Waimauku School and reflects on those days at the 90th anniversary. Signing in: Former students prepare for plenty of mixing and mingling at their old school. Early birds: A decade photo of Waimauku School students from the 1930s. Slice of memories: John Vujcich, who started at Waimauku School on March 17, 1930, cuts the cake during the evening celebrations. A sunny day awaited Wai- mauku's students, teachers and families as they cel- ebrated the school's 90th jubi- lee the next day. Former students, teachers and families came from afar to join in, with the oldest ex- pupil taking part aged 94. Everyone had a chance to view many photos lent to the school, stroll around the school and to catch up and reminisce. The day concluded with a dinner and dance. John Vujcich of Waitoki cut the cake during the evening celebrations. He was at the school from 1929 to 1939 and remembers being as fright- ened as a rabbit'' when he first started. He also recollects how the school bus, a Ford Model T truck had two wooden benches on each side, wooden boards by the side as windows, and a roll of canvas tied on the roof. Students and staff cel- ebrated the reunion with a full assembly and an apt Happy Birthday'' song before before the eldest current student, Anthony Needham, cut a birthday cake before a full school photo was taken for prosperity. Visit www.waimauku. school.nz to order photos of the event.
