Join us our 2018 Cinema Series featuring films from New Zealand’s illustrious cinema history.  Supported by the New Zealand Film Commission Te Tumu Whakaata Taonga, we’ll be screening a different New Zealand film every four months in our media theatre.  Check out our What’s On page for screening dates. 

Patea Primary School (1970)                       

Daily Screening in Learning Centre from 1 April 2019 – 30 June 2019 | Actuality | 11mins

In this film produced by Aldor Films from Pātea, it shows pupils from Patea Primary School studying, playing sports on the field, and enjoying reading.  We’re not sure when this film was made, however it’s a great example of filmmaking in the early 1970’s in New Zealand.  Some familiar faces are shown of people who still live in Pātea today – can you spot them?
