A small group of students, teachers, and members of the community gathered on a rainy May morning last week to officially ‘turn the sod' for Warkworth School's new building.
The site was blessed by Ngati Manuhiri's Ringi Brown before principal Cynthia Holden extracted the first spade of soil.
She said the soil would be nurtured in the school's garden until the building's completion and then returned to the ground as an acknowledgement of the fond memories of the past.
It would be a two-storey building with four integrated learning areas, and was set to be completed mid-2020.
