The Culture and Population of Grey Lynn School

Cultures all over the world have come to join the comunity of our school. In the 1920s things were different, very different. There were no Pacific people, Asians, Indians, or Japanese pupils. The students who went to the school had ancestors who originated in Europe.

After the war things changed. We got better at inviting other cultures to our school. By the 1970s we had a mix of children from different cultures, especially from the Pacific. By Lucy
