Onehunga High School 60th Birthday.

A huge thank you to all of those people who contributed to making the 60th Anniversary celebrations so successful.

The evening began with a Powhiri and performances from our award winning Kapa Haka group, who were outstanding, as were the Jazz Band and Level 1 Dancers. The entertainment provided by these groups elicited many, many compliments from the appreciative audience who were delighted by the impressive quality of the student performances.

The food produced by our Food and Hospitality department, under the supervision of HOD Mr Ryan Thom was simply superb. They had worked tirelessly for many months developing a menu, perfecting the flavour combinations and producing many thousands of canapes which were enjoyed by all.

We would like to thank Alibi Brewery for donating their award winning product to us. It was very generous and a definite hit with the crowd.

Thank you to the prefects for their help with directing guests and cars. The warmth of your welcome set the tone for the evening.

Thank you to all the OHS staff who worked on the night for making this evening the success that it was. Particular thanks to our resident professional photographer and teacher Mr Marc McFadyen who gallantly corralled each excitable cohort as he tried to take photographs.

Most importantly we would like to thank most sincerely, those Alumni who attended on the night, without your support, enthusiasm and generosity we would not have had the wonderful, convivial, evening that we did.
