Don and Llane Hadden

We lived in Panguna from 1976-1980. Don taught at Panguna International School when it was located opposite the police station. We returned to Bougainville in 1999 as volunteers, Don teaching at Arawa High School and Llane as nurse educator at Arawa Health Centre. We lived in Arawa in Section 15 until June 2002.
Update received in August 2008: We are now living in the Northern Territory at Finke (Aputula). Haven't lived in NZ for 9 years. Finke is 200 odd kms as the crow flies, south of Alice Springs and is an Aboriginal Community. Llane is a Remote Area Nurse and so we have lived in a number of Aboriginal Communities around Australia. I retired from teaching when we left Bougainville in mid 2002 and I now work full time as a Wildlife Photographer and Writer and from time to time work as a Guest Lecturer on luxury cruise ships that travel the Kimberley coast from Darwin to Broome. I have a couple of cruises coming up at the end of next week. If they want to pay a Kiwi to tell Australians about Australian birds that's OK by me.
