A big thank you to Mr Chris Jensen (Mrs Jensen's husband), Mr Graham Dyer (Katelyn's grandad) and Mr Jock Melville (Madeline's grandad). These gentlemen have recently visited our classroom to share their memories of what Tauriko was like 100 years ago.
Your stories are very important to us. Thank you for taking the time to share.
