ST. PETER'S CELEBRATES SILVER
JUBILEE

In June this year, St. Peter's Maori College, Northcote, will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of its foundation as a School of Catechists. It is planned to commemorate this occasion with a Silver Jubilee Celebration, which would have as its main feature a re-union of all old boys of the college, since its commencement, in 1928, until the present time. Old boys wishing to attend and not yet invited should send their names and addresses to the college.

The development of 2757 acres of Maori land at Ngaiotonga (Northland) has been approved by Cabinet. Tentatively, it is thought the land will carry eleven dairy farms and two sheep farms. Cost of development to the settlement stage is estimated to be £44 per acre.
