Retiring Wellington High School Principal Nigel Hanton discusses his long history in education
Kath and Dick Rigalsford both attended Wellington Technical College as students in the late 1930's before later getting married. By 2017, they had been married 73 years. They collectively share their memories of their time at the school.
The late Noel Harrison (1929-2016) attended Wellington Technical College in the mid 1940's before later returning in the mid 1950's as a teacher. During his time as a staff member he authored the school first published history with the 1961 book, 'The House that Riley Built', covering 75 years of the school. He later established New Zealand's first ever journalism school, authored several other books and did several other accomplishments to gain a place on the Wellington High School Wall of Fame in 2011. He was interviewed several months before he passed away from a long illness.
