More Info →Central School Event

This is presumably the re-opening ceremony of Central School (situated in Featherston Street) that occurred in 1931 after the top floor was removed. Many towers and upper storeys were removed at this time, due to a heightened awareness of the risks of earthquakes. There were four main incarnations of Central School - The Original School (corner of Main and Princess Streets, 1873-1890), Campbell Street School (1890-1922), Central School (Featherston Street, built 1922), Central Normal School (became a practice school for teachers college students in 1956).
