It was our second home
Inside we built lives and futures
We shared hopes and dreams
Aspired to greatness
Grew kindess and compassion
Sometimes said goodbye to lost souls and kindred spirits.
We tried to mend the ills of the world
And send forth young men and women
Capable of strength and resilience
Who could dance and sing to any tune
Knowing that they were capable of great things.
E block was more than a Nelson block of classrooms
It had a vibrant beating heart
And a soul of its very own.
It was our Taonga.
