Local students donned their best early Howick era costumes at an event celebrating their learning in the past term, dedicated to the region’s upcoming 175th anniversary.

Bucklands Beach Primary School (BBP) opened their classrooms to the community on Thursday in celebration of the school’s Howick 175 learning, followed by a picnic lunch.

All attendees, including students, were encouraged to dress as people did in the early Howick times.

BBP was one of several local schools invited by the Howick 175th Steering Committee to submit a piece of writing or an art work depicting life in Howick 175 years ago.

Schools with the most student work submissions were BBP, followed by Baverstock Oaks School and Point View Primary School.

Work came from students in Year 1 through to Year 12 with most submissions from Years 4, 5 and 6.

Merit award certificates are being given to selected students from across the age ranges and schools.

Free passes to the Howick Historical Village will also be distributed to some students.

A selection of the work is being displayed on the Howick 175th Anniversary website.
