Historical Background

In 1967, the former 97-hectare Cocoa Plantation was purchased and became the site of Sonoma College. In 1968, the Ministerial Department was transferred to Sonoma and in 1970, the Teacher Education Department was added. The college then began operating as an independent institution. Most of the work involved in clearing building and farm sites, making bricks, digging of trenches, and laying foundations, was done by staff and students. A “Fly and Build” team consisting of Australian and New Zealand Volunteer tradesman helped with the actual erection of the buildings.
