150 years of Papatoetoe in Time Capsule

A Time Capsule containing 150 years of the history of Papatoetoe was blessed by Kaumatua Rev Jim Rauwhero at a ceremony held last month.

Former Papatoetoe City Council Town Clerk Jerry Green and two children from the Papatoetoe Central School unveiled the Capsule in the presence of community leaders and prominent residents at the Papatoetoe Library on April 2.

‘The Papatoetoe Time Capsule’ is a Legacy Project of the Papatoetoe 150th Celebrations Committee. It contains a range of items representing 150 events and books that record the history of Papatoetoe.

The Capsule, owned by the Papatoetoe Historical Society Inc will be permanently housed in the Papatoetoe Library until it is opened on April 2, 2062, the bicentenary of Papatoetoe becoming a separate district.

As a part of the Project, ten schools l represented at the Ceremony were provided with a ‘150th Trophy,’ to be presented to a student as an Award for Excellence.
