We have had a great note from Shotover Primary School after Sharyn visited the school to give the children a brief history of Shotover Country.
“Can you please pass on a huge thank you to Sharyn. She was wonderful talking to our kids today. The photos were a huge hit and it was so interesting hearing the history!!! We really appreciated her taking by the time to come in to see is. Many thanks from the Coronet team, Shotover Primary School”
Sharyn spoke to the children about how Shotover Country was inspired by the legacy of the Lower Shotover township, a once thriving settlement with a closeknit community. A focal point of the Lower Shotover township was the little school which opened in 1870 serving an extensive part of the Wakatipu until 1942.
