Next year Hillcrest High School will be celebrating 50 years (1972 to 2022) with a reunion planned for 14 to 17 April 2022 (Easter weekend). The reunion committee has been working since the beginning of this year to create a programme that will showcase Hillcrest over the last 50 years and provide an opportunity for you to catch up with classmates, teachers and colleagues, many of whom you would have not seen for many years.
Former student Brian Winter is writing a book about the history of the school, which will be on sale online and during the reunion.
For information please email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Hillcrest High School website www.hillcrest-high.school.nz and follow the reunion link to the reunion website. The reunion website contains all contact details, registration for the reunion and alumni, as well as the various events.
Entries are open for this year’s Sunday Star-Times short story awards.
The awards include open, emerging Māori and Pasifika writers, and under-25 years categories and will be judged by some of New Zealand’s best authors.
The winning story will be published in the Sunday Star-Times and on Stuff. Entries close Friday 22 October.

Here's a cool idea for communicating with your neighbours without technology or breaching alert level rules...
Each household gets 3 pieces of coloured paper that can be displayed in a window or on a door that others can easily see.
- Green is for I'm OK
- Yellow is for needing help or a check-in
- Red is for an emergency
This is a safe and simple way let others know how you're doing while also looking out for others in your community.
