As a part of discovering the history of New Gisborne Primary we’ve be researching our school honor roll. below is a link to what we already know about those listed on the honor roll. Many of the soldiers on our honor roll are also on the epitaph in Gisborne.
Over the years many staff have researched the history of New Gisborne Primary. Mr Bell has collated their research and filled in the missing gaps with the assistance of both past and present staff and students to produce a book celebrating the achievements and history of New Gisborne Primary. The book will be on sale for $10.00 throughout our 150th celebrations from the 31st May 2013.
