TOKO SCHOOL & DISTRICTS 125TH JUBILEE:
We had an absolutely amazing weekend celebrating 125 years of Toko School and surrounding districts. We have received so many letters from people who attended the jubillee singing the praises of the Jubilee Committee, our schools learning environment and our amazing Toko School Ambassadors (Year 6 - 8 students) who helped out over the weekend. This has been a great way to end the term and we all feel extremely proud of our awesome school and community. A special thanks to all who made this celebration so successful. A big thumbs up to the staff who made themselves available the entire weekend :)
Jan Worthington, ex Toko School Teacher & Parent has spent an extraordinary amount of time putting this book together. It looks amazing, full of photos, stories from current students and a great record of Toko School, and most importantly the previous 25 years. Order forms are available at the school office. We really encourage past and present families to purchase a copy.
