All past Ōtaki College students are invited to get together at the RSA on Friday, February 7.

Foundation pupil Ron Gibbard, who has been on the organising committee for the college’s 50th and 60th reunions, says students of his age are “getting on a bit”.

“At the most recent reunion last year, a few of us there thought we couldn’t wait for another 10 years before we got together again, as Father Time was inspecting our ranks with greater regularity,” Ron says. “Then at David Pritchard’s funeral in November I met up with a number of my classmates from Ōtaki College days and we got talking about an informal reunion.”

They decided to meet informally at the Ōtaki RSA from 5pm on Friday, February 7.

“We thought it would be silly to limit the invitation to just the old timers, so the invitation is for all former students.”

Ron hopes the get-together can become a bi-annual event.

Anyone wishing to attend should contact Ron by text or email at 021 123-0187 or

The Ōtaki District High School was established in 1959, and in 1961 became Ōtaki College.
