Pioneers of Tihoi reunion

It has been 40 years since the opening of Tihoi Venture School. We want to celebrate with the pioneers who were brave enough to open the school amongst the blackberry bush and broken windows.

We invite the students who enrolled at Tihoi in 1979, 1980 and 1981 to attend along with directors and original staff. Due to numbers, we can not open the day to other Tihoi graduates at this stage. After 1 June, we will assess ticket sales and if numbers permit, we will invite 1982 and 1983 attendees also. Partners of attendees may attend daytime activities but will not be able to stay for the dinner due to venue size.
