Wakefield School 175th Anniversary Celebrations

Jubilees and reunions Tasman/Nelson

Posted: 07 May 2018
Notice reference #: 1H9idj

Join us on 9–10 November 2018 to celebrate 175 years of schooling in Wakefield.  

Wakefield School opened on 8 October 1843 and we reckon it is New Zealand's oldest continuing school. We'd like to test that theory so if you think your school is older, or you know of another that is, please send us the evidence.  

We also invite all current and former students, staff and their families to join us in celebrating our 175th anniversary.  

You can find more information on our Facebook page, Wakefield-School-175th-Celebration; or by emailing us at or by ph (03) 541 8332.
