Farewell Phoenix

It was with great sadness that we farewelled Phoenix and his dad Lee, last Tuesday. 

The school did us proud, with the Kapa Haka group leading an emotionally charged haka, flanking the cortege and sending Phoenix and his dad off with a chorus of strength and love. 

We continue to support our students through this very difficult time. Please do reach out to us if you feel you or your child needs additional support.

Thank you to our community

A huge thank you so much to all the schools, parents, boards and community members who have reached out and supported us over the last few weeks. We have appreciated it so very much, and it gave us the strength we needed to support others. 

From morning teas to other schools deploying their own school counsellors, we feel very humbled to be a part of such a strong and supportive community. 

Thank you.
