Berhampore suburb in Wellington has achieved a lot of firsts. Berhampore was the first community in New Zealand to build social housing blocks. The suburb was also ground central for the 1981 Springbok Tour clashes at Athletic Park, which finally closed in 1999. Rumoured to be buried beneath Berhampore's parks are remnants of equipment from the Second World War. Berhampore Primary School turns 100 this year so Lynda Chanwai-Earle is attending the school’s special celebrations and book launch to meet the community and the eldest and youngest students of the century
