CBS School Hall Refurbishment Donor Wall

Located directly opposite the main entrance to the hall is the donor wall. Each brick in this wall names a donor who contributed to the school hall refurbishment project in 2000-2001. The school remains grateful to these supporters, without whom the project could not have been completed.

CBS 75th Jubilee (1925-2000)

Campbells Bay School opened, with 16 students, in 1925. The original classroom, pictured above, still exists, but has been incorporated into the structure of the main office block and new entrant classes.

As the area has undergone massive urbanisation and change over the years, CBS has remained a premier educational institution. To mark the 75th Jubilee celebrations in 2000 a commemorative magazine was produced.

Heritage of our Local Region

Our Community Forest

The forest on our school grounds is an important part of our New Zealand heritage and is an excellent educational resource for the students.

One corner of the property, running alongside the Peter Terrace Walkway, is occupied by a large section of native bush. This bush is regenerating, slowly, after years of being strangled and overgrown by introduced species, weeds and rubbish.

Sometime between the 1980s and our Jubilee celebrations in 2000, the school undertook to rescue this little corner of natural New Zealand. Now we have a forest populated with cicadas, tui and kereru. There is even a small patch of wetlands.

Except for the Rimu Track, the entire area has been laid with raised wooden boardwalks. Access is available all year round to check out the plants in various stages of growth, and more plantings take place every year.

Taking care of the forest has been incorporated into our school curriculum. Members of Forest and Bird and the Centennial Park Bush Society provide invaluable assistance and advice. We welcome and encourage visitors to walk through our forest, help with the weeding or make donations of native plants.

Campbells Bay School Community Forest History

From Small Seeds

From 1.5 – 2.0 hectares of school land heavily overgrown and infested with invasive weeds as well as a row of pine trees alongside the Peter terrace walkway in the mid-1990s, emerged a regenerating native forest by the end of the 1990s that continues to evolve with careful nurturing.

In August 1995 the CBS Board of Trustees committed $500.00 to seed the start of the regeneration project encompassing the unused and largely derelict tract of land.   In July 1996 the Board adopted a management plan for the regenerating land, to be named The Community Forest. The plan included a description of the land as well as suggested species for planting and the design of wooden tracks to provide for all-weather access to much of the forest. While the Board retained full governance responsibilities for the forest, the day to day operation of the forest was assigned to the Community Forest Committee.

This committee drove the implementation of the vision of having an accessible native forest. Aside from the Board, who held overall governance of the project, the forest had many champions and friends. The management plan was developed by Fiona George, a parent of the school. This plan was an essential guide for volunteers to follow. Richard Hursthouse, also a parent of the school, and Fiona became champions of the forest as they guided countless volunteers in the all-important implementation phase of the management plan. Many weekends were taken up by a band of volunteers who planted, cleared invasive weeds and constructed wooden walkways. As well as Milford Rotary, who supplied volunteers and money, sponsors included Maddren Timber, Projex, Placemakers and Stevensons. Project Crimson provided many pohutukawa trees, most of which were planted on the edge of the forest that borders the field, while the Lotteries Board provided $10,000 in funding. Given the cost of materials such support was invaluable, particularly as the Board was also raising funds to extend the school’s hall.

As time went on, Fiona left the area and Richard continued as the champion of the forest. Although now also committed to North Shore Forest & Bird and to the restoration of the habitat of nearby Centennial Park, Richard continues to provide time and guidance to the development of the forest.

During the years there have been key ‘on the ground’ supporters of the forest aside from those already mentioned. These include Anne Tyas and Rosemary Wilcox, parents of the school, who provided countless hours of leadership and volunteer labour. Jenny Hunter (then assistant principal) and more recently as a former member of staff and a grandmother of children at the school created and implemented a management plan for regular weeding of the forest floor as well as labelling many of the trees. Jenny continues to this day to provide educational tours of the forest for groups of students of the school.

The wooden walking tracks have proven to be invaluable as they have provided for all weather access to much of the forest. The walkways involved the placement of 1,734 planks of wood making the track system, in its time of development, almost a project of national significance!

In 1997 the Ministry of Education invited all school boards to consider the sale of land surplus to requirements, with each board being able to retain half the proceeds of such sales. After consideration the Campbells Bay School Board decided against selling any land, including the developing Community Forest. A considered and wise decision.

On 21 September 2000 Professor Geoff Baylis (1913 – 2003), a foundation student when the school opened on 31 August 1925, opened the forest as a jubilee gift to the community. He was helped by Taryn la Grange, the then youngest student at the school. Professor Baylis planted an extremely rare tree discovered by Professor Bayliss in the Three Kings Island: Pennantia Baylisiana.

Pennantia Baylisiana is an extremely rare tree and was discovered in the Three Kings Island by Professor Baylis when he was Professor of Botany at Otago University.

The Community Forest continues to an inspiring legacy and a wonderful resource for the community that will be maintained by the school and friends of the forest.

Research was carried out by Campbells Bay School students under the guidance of the school’s librarian, Sharon Purchase. Full interviews can be found by going to the Living Heritage website.

An Interview of Fiona George: Forest Champion

I have a daughter, Sam, at the school and I wanted to help. I have a Diploma in Environmental Management so I was able to make a big plan for the next five years for the school.  Mr McGowan helped get parents to work at the working bees and we got started. I wrote a very detailed proposal of 80 pages and the Board of Trustees decided to adopt the proposal as the jubilee Project for the 75th anniversary of the school in 2000.

There was a lot of rubbish in the forest including shopping trolleys, timber, plastic, glass and school litter. We started to plant in 1995. At that time there were hardly any birds

In 1998 there was a big slip in the forest and a whole section of the field sank down into the forest. It washed all of the walkway and the plants below the field. It was like a river of mud. Then new drainage was put in the field. (The site of the slip is now marked by a very substantial retaining wall.)

An Interview of Sam George, daughter of Fiona and a CBS student

I think I planted three trees: a pohutukawa, a kauri and a kowhai. When the adults were working most of the kids helped – many of them planted trees or helped with the weeding. I loved working in the forest. I have always liked making things grow and I really want to see how far the forest has come. Since leaving the school, sadly I haven’t had much of a chance to come back and see CBS.  I loved Campbells Bay School. It was one of the most beautiful schools I’ve seen and I think you are very lucky to still be there.

If there was one thing I could say about Campbells Bay School it would be to enjoy your time there. You don’t realise how fun primary school is until you’re doing exams. So don’t take it all for granted – saviour every moment.

An interview with Anne Tyas: Forest Champion

Mrs Tyas, her husband, and children Ben and Sophie, have spent many, many hours working in our forest.  She is in charge of it now with Mrs Wilcox – they are the forest caretakers.

What kind of things were in the forest before it was done up?

There were weeds, old rubbish, newspapers, old tyres, glass and plastic and all sorts of bottles. There was also a lady’s hand bag (some body decided they would steal a lady’s bag and hide it in the Community Forest). In 1996 when most of the rubbish was cleared away, the people (mostly the fathers) made the board walk what it is today.

How has the forest changed?

We (all the people who worked on the forest) got rid of some noxious weed and wandering willy. Noxious weeds are weeds that are not good for the forest. We have planted kauri trees, putaputa weta trees, toi toi plants, puriri trees, mahoe, cabbage trees, flax bushes, pohutakawa trees, native plants, native bushes and many more native trees.

Who are some of the lovely people who have worked on the forest?

Mrs Rosemary Wilcox, Mrs. Fiona George, Mrs. Jenny Hunter, Mr. John McGowan, Dr. Richard Hursthouse and many others over the years.

What kind of birds are there in the Community Forest?

There are fantails, blackbirds, sparrows, wax eyes, rosellas, tuis and wood pigeons. We have more birds now than there used to be.

What insects are there?

There are spiders, worms, earwigs, cockroaches, bees, lizards, grasshoppers, cicadas, ladybirds, caterpillars, wetas and all sorts of insects.

An interview with Rosemary Wilcox: Forest Champion

How do you help the forest?

I help a lot with the weeding, planting and growing from seeds.  I have been helping for about six years now and I am amazed at the wonderful growth that has happened during that time.  I think our forest will look really special in 50 years’ time.

Why did you want to help the forest? 

To leave something behind for future generations and because it was a project I believed in for the North Shore.

What types of trees can we plant to get lots of birds back? 

Natives that flower.

What is your favourite type of bird?

The tui.

Have any other people in your family helped in the forest or been to this school?

Yes, my father-in-law Ron was a very keen worker at the school, and his father John Wilcox was the Headmaster here.

What are the plans for the forest in the future?

To nurture the forest for the future, we plan to plant more and fill in the gaps. A personal goal would be to propagate another Pennantia Baylisiana.  We only have one and they are either male or female, you cannot tell until they flower.  Ours is growing very well now and when it flowers I hope to be able to buy a mate to plant near it.  Oratia Nurseries are growing some now – that could be good.

What are the problems you face managing the forest?

Weeds, weeds, weeds and vandals.  Unfortunately some very silly people try to ruin our good work, but now many of the trees are getting too big to be damaged.

Do you need more helpers?

Yes, we would be happy to have help from parents, children, neighbours or anyone in the community who loves forests and birds.  They could just call the school office and they will be put in touch with one of the forest organizers.  We would welcome helpers, plant or money donations to continue our work.

Would you like the school to have a greenhouse to help grow seeds? 

Yes, that would be a real asset and great to teach the children how to grow plants.

Do you use compost in the forest?

We use a lot of mulch.  We have it donated usually, and the volunteers spread it around to keep the moisture in the plant roots.

Do you do anything to the trees that were planted years ago? 

Just try to keep them free of weeds and vines.  Some of the big trees near the walkway might have to be trimmed soon as they are really growing large.

An interview with Jenny Hunter, assistant principal and forest champion

What job do you do for the Community Forest?

I do teacher liaison work between a committee of parents and school staff.

What responsibilities do you have that relate to the Community Forest?

I encourage teachers to use the forest for programmes in science, art, language, technology and social studies. It is my job to make sure that the children are involved with the forest. Each classroom checks on the trees in their own working area. 200 trees were donated by KERP (Kaipatiki Environmental Restoration Project) and planted by students during the 2003 school year. KERP is an organisation that donates trees to schools to help restore parts of the North Shore to its former bush state.

How long have you had this responsibility?

Two years.

How has the Community Forest changed through the years?

The children do more of the work in the forest now. In the early days the parents did all the work in the working bees which were held regularly.

What do you think is best about the Community Forest?

I think it is wonderful. The native forest is great for the children. They can grow up learning to appreciate the forests around them more, and they can learn to help the environment.

How do you think the students benefit from having their own forest?

They learn about the environment. They see the benefits of keeping the forest clean. As the forest is being restored, we (the school community) can practise environmental skills and ensure that in the future, as adults, we can appreciate and contribute more.

What is planned next year for the forest?

Next year we hope to get a glasshouse so that we may grow seeds and other plants in the garden. We also look forward to planting flax and other trees too.  If we can grow enough seeds, we can donate some to other forests like Centennial Park or to the Council to plant in parks.  Students need to practise what they learn about, and those interested could join a club dedicated to improving our school environment.

We also hope to start an organic garden so the children can learn to grow their own vegetables etc.  We need to have future citizens who are aware of, and can contribute to, a healthy environment.
