My mother was the sole charge teacher of Cannington School during the years 1943/44. would be most interested in more details of her service for Renee Hollis' next book 'New Zealand's silent Army'

Hi, my uncles' names are engraved on the memorial gates at the cannington school, I just wondered if they also attended the same school and also my father C H Murphy?
Thank you kindly

These gates also remember the soldiers who died in World war II.
