The Formal 40 Year Birthday Party!!

Our Dominion 40 year birthday celebrations kicked off on the 30th of October with a formal party!

There were lots of delicious things to eat and drink, and, we had guests from our past and present, all of whom are part of our colourful family history!

VIP guests present were Mr Saburo Takayasu Dominion's Managing Director, John Langdon our School's Founder, Margaret Jillings our Christchurch Principal & Nikki Kaye a member of parliment.

Speeches were given by Mr Takayasu, John Langdon, Nikki Kaye & Martin Wall, our Auckland principal.

Alyson Craig presented the Dominion Anniversary Book for all the guests to sign!

After the speeches guests were treated to a fantastic recital of "Morceau de Concour by Faure" performed by Sonia Kao, our Registrar, on flute and Momoko Caughey, our Finance Manager, on piano.

Among the invited guests there were current students who represented the many nationalities at Dominion as well as local agents and past and present staff.

Thanks to all who helped us celebrate our 40 years in education!!
