I grew up in Hawke's Bay, NZ, living first in Hastings and attended Ebbett Park School for my first 6 months of school. We then moved to Havelock North and I attended Havelock North Primary School until the end of my Standard 4 year (Year 6) at which point I was a boarding student at Samuel Marsden Collegiate for my intermediate years. My secondary schooling was at Karamu High School in Hastings.
School wasn't the highlight of my youth! The only thing I remember about my primary schooling is warm milo in winter and warm milk in summer! Boarding school was certainly an experience - positive as far as health was concerned.
