Last week Matua John Maihe came along and blessed a carving that was entrusted to the school. The carving was crafted by Mr Hubbard, it is now hanging in the foyer and has a historic connection to Whanganui East School. Norman Hubbard and his whanau attended Whanganui East School in the 1930’s. Mr Hubbard had a passion for hunting, carving and restoration. He was dedicated to the conservation of many historic buildings and was awarded an MBE in 1981 for his work. Mr Hubbards whanau were at the blessing and we want to thank them for letting us be the guardians over the carving.
