Old Forest School

Old Forrest School

Old Forest School was built in the early 1930’s to serve as a school, gathering place and hub for a small (but thriving) rural community in Pongakawa. The school shut down in the 1980’s and like many historic New Zealand properties, time took its toll. The buildings and property lost some of their former luster.
