The organisers of next month's Kaitaia Intermediate School reunion have committed to staging the event, after expressing doubt there would be enough registrations to make it worthwhile.
One committee member said earlier this week that far too much work had gone into it to think of cancelling, and the school's first reunion would proceed "whether it is intimate or not".
Recent publicity has had some effect, however. On Tuesday, paid registrations had reached 150, up about 40 in a week. The deadline has now been extended to October 12.
"We would really like people to spread the word amongst ex-teachers," committee member Shirley Williams said.

"We haven't got many of them yet, which is a shame."
Most who had registered would be attending all three functions, she added, starting with a 'mix and mingle' on Friday October 19, followed by photos etc at the school on the Saturday and a dinner at Te Ahu that night, with former teacher Dave Gorrie in charge of the music.
