John AVENT - Bay of Plenty Times 17 May 1881 - Native School
The Teacher of the Native School at Waiotahi, Mr John Avent, has received from the Under Secretary of the Education Department a letter expressing the satisfaction of the Minister of Education at the report lately furnished to Mr Pope, Inspector of Natives Schools, on his recent visit to the school. Mr Pope found the progress of the pupils very satisfactory, and spoke in high terms of the good order and cleanliness of the school. This school was built about a year ago by the natives, and is large and lofty, with a comfortable room attached for the teacher, and altogether the school and attendance of the children are a satisfactory evidence of the desire for improvement on the part of the natives.
