Kawakawa School History

The goal of this project is to record the history of the school

Application for a school at Kawakawa must have been made prior to 1873. The Auckland Education Board was only constituted under the Education Act of 1872 and it has no record of such an application. The first reference in the Board Minute Books relating to Kawakawa, on 28 March 1873, reads: "Resolved to allow the Teacher at the rate of one hundred and twenty-eight pounds a year till 30 June which appears to be the actual salary received by him last year". Whether the teacher referred to, Mr WW Taylor, was the first Kawakawa teacher is not known, but he is the earliest on record.

Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Julie Marshall.

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  • upload any info that you have
  • upload any photos
  • identify members in the photos or use the photos for your own family

here are some tips on how to write a good history paper:

Start with thorough research: A good history paper requires extensive research so as an alternative you can history papers now. Start by reading your assigned readings, then move on to scholarly articles, primary sources, and other relevant materials.

Organize your ideas: Organize your thoughts and ideas in a logical and structured manner. Create an outline that includes an introduction, body, and conclusion. Use topic sentences to ensure each paragraph focuses on a specific idea or argument https://topthesis.com/history-paper-writing-service.html

I stumbled upon your article about the history of Kawakawa School, and I must say that it was quite an interesting read. As someone who is fascinated by the history of education, I really appreciated the amount of research and detail you put into the article. It's great to see people preserving the history of their communities and keeping it alive for future generations.

As a students of Historical Faculty I found your blog quite useful for my future discussion board writing (the most asked assignment to prepare for the seminar and lecture) quite often I use help of https://essaysworld.net/write-my-discussion-board-post service and if to combine both discussion writers help and the info you posted here I may get an excellently written historical discussion post. Moreover, want to add smith more about the article you provided here. Reading about the various changes that the school underwent throughout the years was truly eye-opening. From the early days of a small schoolhouse to the modern, well-equipped facilities of today, it's amazing to see how much has changed over the years. The photos you included in the article really brought the history to life and made it easy to imagine what it must have been like to attend the school in those different eras.
