Thanks Robin Penman,

Really, it was called Reefton Primary School back then. In Form 2 I had a wonderful teacher – Robin Penman. Our class was located in a stand-alone room with a huge number of students  (maybe 50+ students) in 1966. However, Mr Penman drove the school bus from Ikamatua, was very sporty, and made learning stimulating and fun! He showed a great deal of respect to each student and I think that we all liked him. I remember achieving well at gymnastics. I loved speed tests in Maths. I loved my Form 2 year at school due to the input of this special person. Thank you Robin Penman!
