Kaipaki reaches roll milestone

Beatrix Gibb and Devin Bartlett cut the cake celebrating Kaipaki School’s roll reaching triple figures last week.

Kaipaki School has celebrated reaching 100 students, the first time in the school’s 142-year history the roll has hit triple figures.

In honour of the occasion, students put on a presentation with the theme of 100, including one group which sang and original song – A Hundred Dreams – to the tune of a Million Dreams from The Greatest Showman.

Then it was time to cut the celebration cake, with the youngest student at the school, Beatrix Gibb and one of the oldest, Devin Bartlett doing the honours.

The 100th student, Shakarna Nelson, was caught by surprise, standing in front of the school to receive a certificate to commemorate her place in the school’s history.
