Kaikorai School Jubilee 1869-1919 (Souvenir Booklet pages 12–18)

Rolls and Reports.

A compilation from the earliest available admission register to the present year shows that 7,504 pupils have attended the School. Educational authorities and inspectors co-operated with the long list of teachers in order that the children might obtain an intelligent, creditable start in life. The annual reports from ten different inspectors have been of a highly gratifying nature to all concerned, and the noted successes of pupils in the several competitions open to Primary School children most praiseworthy. The fact of 49 Education Board Scholarships having been won by Kaikorai pupils must speak for itself.

Character Building.
Kaikorai Soldiers. 

But the most commendable test of the value of the work done in the Kaikorai School or in any other school is that which aims at detecting whether a chivalrous, noble character, genuine citizen-ship, and true patriotism have been produced. The Great War of 1914-1918 that was thrust on the world by Germany gave an opportunity of proving whether our School could stand this test. The noble response of ex-pupils and ex-teachers to the call of Empire showed that all those who had laboured in the best interests of the School had not striven in vain, for about 400 ex-pupils and 5 teachers enlisted, and 94 of them sleep their last long sleep many thousands of miles from home and school. All these name-, are inscribed on our handsome Honour Board. It is surely our great privilege to give the names of the 97 noble dead who were among the very best teachers and pupils that the School helped to develop. Lovingly, gratefully, and proudly we specially inscribe in this Jubilee Souvenir the names of those who fell in the Great War:

SONNET :

Ave Atque Vale.

To the fragrant memory of those Old Boys of Kaikorai School who laid down their lives for the Empire in the Great War, 1914-1918.

Far from the sunshine of your own home-land,

Rest folds you ‘neath her consecrated wings,

While honour weaves your pall with reverent hand,

And Freedom o’er you sweetest requiem sings;

With boyhood’s smiling eyes you death defied,

Left all and followed where grim Duty led,

Now in proud Britain’s heart your names abide,

Enscrolled among the imperishable dead.

Hail and farewell ! true hearts will not forget

Your purpose high, your love unquenchable,

The splendour of your willing sacrifice;

Hail and farewell ! no, flower of vain regret

Blooms with the amaranth and asphodel

Beside the pathways of your paradise.

H. P. KELK.

Our War Honour Board.

Our War Honour Board.

The very handsome School Honour Board, containing some 400 names of ex-pupils who served in the late war, is the gift of Messrs. Jones and Stewart, builders, of Roslyn. The Board itself is the personal work of Mr. Frank Jones, and has involved hours of time and labour. It is made entirely of New Zealand mottled kauri, with mouldings of figured honeysuckle. The School Committee arevery grateful for this handsome and timely gift. It will be fittingly unveiled at the Jubilee Service on Sunday afternoon, 30th November, and thereafter hung in the vestibule of the School.

Names of those who served their country in the Great War.
