Visions for Dunedin: Arthur Street School Infants' Building Under Threat
27 Apr, 6:00 pm
Dunedin City Library, 230 Moray Place, Central Dunedin, Dunedin 9054, New Zealand
In partnership with Dunedin Public Libraries, the Southern Heritage Trust presents 'Visions for Dunedin', a regular series of inspirational talks exploring visions of Dunedin’s past, present and future.
Dunedin's Arthur Street School celebrates its 170th anniversary this year with a new building, but another of it's buildings, the first and oldest infant’s classroom in Otago, is in imminent danger of being moved to Christchurch.
Both the building and the site are of significant historical value, and there are compelling reasons why this only remaining heritage building must be retained on its present site. Options for sustainable reuse must be fully investigated and an important social and educational role for Dunedin realised.
SPEAKERS: A group of passionate heritage advocates including Lois Galer, Stephen Macknight, Bruce Robertson (Headmaster for 18 years) and Ann Barsby.
Dunningham Suite, 4th floor, Dunedin City Library
