WFA travels
to the storm

Nine Wellington Free Ambulance [WFA] staff and four rescue vehicles have travelled north into the eye of the storm to support their Hato Hone St John colleagues.

The staff deployed over the weekend to Tairawhiti [Gisborne] and the Coromandel in anticipation of Cyclone Gabrielle’s landfall.

“The crews are highly skilled frontline paramedics with rescue training capability and will remain in place as the community braces for the impact of Cyclone Gabrielle in the coming days. Working outside of our usual region to support our colleagues and community is just one of the ways that the first response community comes together when people are in need.”

WaiCol marks
centenary

Wairarapa College opened to students 100 years ago today.

At 9.30am on Thursday, February 15, 1923, classes began for the college’s inaugural roll of 222 students after an official opening ceremony the day before. When it opened, it was called Wairarapa High School and was renamed Wairarapa College after merging with Masterton Technical School in 1937.

Today, it is the largest school in Wairarapa, with a roll of 1037. The college is celebrating the centenary from March 10-12.
