The Hawera High Centennial reunion offers more than just a chance to recall memories with old friends - you can even send your memories into the future in the Centennial Time Capsule!
The Hawera High Centennial Committee is offering you an opportunity to place documents in the Time Capsule, which will be vacuum-packed, sealed and buried in the school grounds after the 2019 reunion - and not opened until the school’s sesquicentenary (150 years) in 2069!
The Time Capsule is manufactured by Armoursheild Engineering Ltd, a Normanby company run by entrepreneurial former Hawera High student Paul Schrader.
Centennial Committee Chairman Donald Stockwell said the Time Capsule was a great way for people to leave memories for posterity. “You can leave them for your children, your grandchildren or descendants who are yet to be born,” he suggested.
“If you want, you can contribute pictures on your own memory stick, print out your stories or family history or even write it over the weekend - as the memories come flooding back.”
Bring your own memory stick & print your own story or family history or write it over the weekend.
The Hawera High Centennial Committee will have two computers and a printer available on-site over the weekend, which will let you fill two sides of an A4 page for just $10. It cost just $10 for a single flash drive.
