150th Jubilee Celebrations

Friday, Saturday, Sunday, 19 – 21 March 2021


Thank you one and all who came along to celebrate 150 years of Hororata Primary School.
The whole weekend was a great success.
The speeches were extremely enjoyable thank you to Mr Gameson, (Principal) and Rod Oliver (Jubilee Chairman).  Our guest speaker (Shaun Clarke) former pupil was totally engaging and the positive comments, which are still coming in, attest to this.
We had a excellent Chairman, Rod Oliver who helped make the weekend Jubilee Celebrations so successful.
Thank you to committee members, Dee Oliver and Bridget Parsons, Dee got the Southfuels bbq under fire and cooked up the sausages on Friday night.  Bridget was a willing helper in all things Jubilee.
Thank you to Martin Bruce who cranked up his potato chip cooker for a tasty treat, and then played on his guitar for our Sunday morning Church Service. 
 Thank you to Pip Deans  and Sarah Oliver, great work with the lanyards and working with the registration.  Thanks to Sonia Booth and Lucy Cookson  for their marvellous work at the Darfield Rec Centre and along with Cindy Driscoll who was there to pick up all the pieces, booked in Country Feasts, the most marvellous caterers for our Saturday night dinner.  And Lucy and Cindy also organised the Saturday night refreshments along with eftpos machines etc.  And more much more.  Lucy bread from Couplands and extra shopping.
