Thank You Whaea Banks for all you done for me in my younger days. My Primary Years are my most treasured and remembered years! You inspired me to want to do good and better myself as a young Maori Person. Made me want to become a Teacher – I now have 3 children and my oldest is now in the class i was in 17 years ago. Maori Immersion Class the only class of our kind in a Main Stream School – Ngati Kotahitanga Tu Tonu, Thank You Whaea for everything!
