For 33 years Pioneer Hall has been the venue for early childhood Steiner Education in the Motueka area. After the kindergarten relocated to Wallace Street, the hall continued to serve us as a playgroup venue. The playgroup has now also moved to Wallace Street so the time came to say goodbye. Former parents and students spanning the 33 years came to say farewell to a building they knew and loved. The main farewell event was held on 23 July 2016 and many stories were told of the dedication and hard work in the early years. Fondness and pride were obvious.
