Old Cooper house being removed to Waihi (1997).


Hubert James Cooper was appointed to No. 1 School at Katikati in October 1919, after a short teaching position in Cambridge. The Katikati School building consisted of 1 room divided by a curtain. He had one assistant. The school grew over the years and he retired from teaching at about 1929. Mr Cooper then bought a Dairy farm in Katikati as he thought cows would be easier to manage than children even in those early days. Photo courtesy of Ellen McCormack.
