Hi Ngaireedith thankyou I hope one of the pupils Lina Boden is my grandmother the year is about right and she was at school and lived in Paeroa at this time. She has been difficult to confirm as the birth certificate is not found yet but on her marriage cert she is listed as the child of William James BODEN and Jane Louisa MCAskill. all of Paeroa.
