55th Reunion Celebration.

It was a fun night last night at Tamaki College. Students from when the school was first opened came back for a 55th anniversary reunion. The auditorium was set up with school photographs from past years in the 1950's and 1960's and people were soon labeling them with the names that they remembered. It was a very busy event with lots of happy meetings between old friends.
The Tamaki College catering class did a fabulous job of keeping everyone supplied with very tasty treats all night. They had spent all day preparing everything fresh.
Next year's prefects had their first job. They were greeting people as they arrived at the college and escorted them to the auditorium. Lots of stories were being told to the students on those walks from the car parks.
A fun point of the night was recreating the school photographs from various years, starting from 1957.

Prefect Handover Ceremony.

We had an emotional assembly today at Tamaki College. It is that time of year when the new prefects for next year are announced.
It was a different process this year, where the Year 12 students had to apply for the post. They then had to go through an interview process and the successful applicants were then put forward to be voted on by the school.

This year's leaders presented the new Prefects and House Captains, one at a time. Family and friends had been invited to the assembly, so it was noisy, cheerful event.
