Oaklands 50th Jubilee
On the 24th, 25th and the 26th of October Oaklands had their 50th jubilee. To open it on the Saturday the senior Kapa Haka performed two songs.
Then followed by the planting of a kowhai tree by Mrs Hanson(BOT), Isabella(Head Girl), Daniel(Head Boy) and Mr John Warburton( One of the first teachers).
What will Oaklands School be like in another 50 years,
In 2064 Oaklands will be 100 years old.
Here are some of the questions I have.
Will all the work be done on an Ipad, Ipod, Computer.etc?
Will Oaklands still have the same uniform or will it be different or even mufti?
How many children will we have at our school will it be more or will it be less?
What Oaklands is like now,
At Oaklands we have approximatley 580 students, 25 classes and 27 teachers.
We write in books but for research we use an Ipad, Ipod and Computers.
Our uniform is a red polo shirt we have the option of green track-pants, shorts or cullottes and a green jersey. The year seven and eights have recently changed the top and jacket they now wear a red and green top with the oaklands logo and a red sport style jacket.

Oaklands schools uniform 50 years ago the girls wore a green gym frock with the old oaklands logo and a white blouse underneath.
The boys wore a white shirt with a red tie and green shorts.
