Our forbears gave their lives so that we might have a better life. We have much to thank them for.



Maukoro is my mountain,

The Hokianga is my river,

Karaka Bay is my bay,

Mamari is my canoe,

Te Rarawa is my iwi,

Waiparera is my marae,

Vivian Alphonso Watkins is my father,

I am Tony Watkins
