The standard four pupils of the Central School came up with a novel way to remember their recent week-long visit to Camp Kaitawa, near Waikaremoana. The whole class had a hand in producing this 21-foot mural of the area and shows many of the active ities that took place while they were there. With their teacher, Mr A. W. Coppell (left), the class holds up the mural for your inspection.
