This image was taken by Frank Goldingham for Photorama pictorial magazine's April 1963 edition. "Some of the students putting up another family batch measuring 30 ft. by 14 ft."

Caption: "The first Evangelical training centre in New Zealand has been opened on the 100 acre property formerly owned by Mr. Tom Woodruff, who recently joined the Mission, and situated on the Tangimoana highway, 20 miles from Palmerston North. The training centre is supervised by Mr. John Edwards, acting principal, and Mr. Don Hay, acting representative, both of whom arrived from the U.S.A. last February to take up their posts. All together there are five such training centres in the world."

"The main type of work of the mission, which at the moment has 19 students, wives included, is preaching and work among the natives of unexplored, untouched areas of the world, said Mr. Hay. Each student and his family will spend about 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 years training here and then to Australia to study linguistics at the New Tribes Mission centre there."

The New Tribes Mission School, a language and finishing school for missionaries near Tangimoana Beach was opened in 1962. The four hectare property contained accommodation quarters, a workshop, laundries, nursery room, study rooms and an office block. In September 1979 it was put up for sale, being forced to close because of the cost of bringing students to New Zealand.
