the Dominican Sisters of Wanganui will be opening a Girls’ Boarding School in
New Zealand to enable INTERNATIONAL and NATIONAL students to profit from a
well-balanced traditional Catholic education under the influence of religious

alarm system, and, need I mention, our local ‘securityguards’ at Wanganui Alarm
