NZ'S FIRST WORLD WAR CENTENARY 2014–2019

Remembrance trees

8 June 2014 - 4:18pm -- Geoffrey Shepherd

Kuranui College, which is situated in Greytown, is planting trees along a 150 metre boundary to commemorate the 100 years since the start of WW1. 

A group of Year 10 students has been researching the names of the soldiers from the area who died in WW1. We hope to be able to invite family members of some of these men to a tree planing ceremony and WW1 themed concert to be held at the college on Friday July 4.

The idea of trees as a memorial was inspired by the 117 lime trees planed around Greytown's Memrial park to honour the 117 men from Greytown who died in WW1.

We intend installing a plaque to explain the significance of the trees.
