On Friday we were lucky enough to have Mrs Sweeney in to share with us all about the Te Aroha storm in 1978. She showed us lots of photos of her house which lost its roof in the storm and she explained to us how she got woken up very early in the morning by her mum to leave their house. Mrs Sweeney also told us she was allowed to take one thing with her and you won't guess what she took... ask a Room One student for the answer!
Mrs Sweeney also informed us about the theatre and how it got destroyed in the storm. She had amazing photos of the theatre when it was being demolished.
THANKS MRS SWEENEY
