Thames (NZ): Early teachers

A CD is available from Colonial Books, "NEW ZEALAND TEACHERS EXAMINATION 1880 - 1920"

The information is actual pages from the NZ GAZETTE's. (NB The books are available to view and research at The Treasury, Thames)
The information is often listed by district but other sections are special mentions or prizes that detail town, as the examples below show:
SPECIAL MENTION (NZ Gazette Mar 19 1903)
JOHNS, William Francis, Thames,elementary Science Class E
MAHONEY, Harriet Elizabeth, Thames, Domestic Economy

In 1 March 1913 publication, passes were listed for:
JOHNSON, May Oliver, Thames
VOYSEY, William Doran, Thames

A wealth of information, with many more Thames-ites listed
