By: Marjorie Chisholm14th Jun 2018 8:27PMYes, this is definitely Kaikorai Primary School situated in Roslyn, Dunedin. Schooling went from Primer one to Form II. A beautiful stone building being the main part which housed school rooms from Std 2 to Form II. Was it in Tyne Street, with the playground almost backing onto Highgate. It is a long time since I was there in the 1940's.
By: Patricia Ives11th Jun 2018 5:33PMAdd your story here... Yes this is definitely Kaikorai School. There were 10 sets of twins there in the 1940's. I went to the school from 1948 to 1956 and these are the buildings that have now, sadly been demolished. Built and opened in 1884 I can remember the engraved stone on the building. I used to pull the rope and ring the bell in the bell tower. Some wonderful memories.
