Photos: JIMMY NESS Happy occasion: Mayor Wayne Guppy and Ella Bouchereau, 5, cut a cake to celebrate the opening of Mangaroa School's new hall. By JIMMY NESS It has been seven years in the making, but the Mangaroa School community has finally built its own hall. The new building was built by locals and includes a kitchen, wheelchair lift, toilets, showers and a stage with a projector and lighting. Mangaroa School principal Glenys Rogers said they worked hard for the hall, which is valued about $400,000 and seats 350. It was 10 years ago that we first thought up the idea, but it was probably seven to build. Some of the dads have worked Sunday or Tuesday nights for years. You raise some money, you build that bit, you raise some money, you build that bit. The ministry just does not give funding for anything like that. It s taken a lot longer than we originally thought, but we knew we were going to get there. Mangaroa School raised funds with spring festivals, sausage sizzles, spellathons, school fairs and more. The school celebrated its suc- cess with an opening day last Friday, attended by Mayor Wayne Guppy and Rimutaka MP Chris Hipkins. The day started with a Maori opening ceremony before parents, pupils and past pupils entered the hall for a cake cutting. Students were excited about the new hall, Mrs Rogers says. They love it, they absolutely love it. They are just so appreciat- ive of it because we had to squat in the library for assemblies, you had the parents leaning in through the windows. Mayor Guppy said he was impressed with the effort everyone had put in. It just shows what a school means to a community and the strength of Mangaroa, he said. They knew there was a need for it and that they wanted it.
