Towards the end of every year we have to ‘permanently and temporarily’ farewell staff as they move on to other employment and life opportunities. This year is no exception:
We would like to take this opportunity to say congratulations to Whaea Susan (Stephenson). She will be leaving Te Huruhi School at the end of this year as she has secured a position at Ko Taku Reo, the education centre for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. Susan will be starting in a new role as a Resource Teacher for the Deaf. Thank you Susan for everything that you have done for the tamariki at Te Huruhi School. We wish you all the best in your new role.
Whaea Deb (Middleton) will also be moving on at the end of the year. She has decided to leave Waiheke and explore other educational employment opportunities. Deb has been a cheerful and energetic member of our staff. Good luck for the future Deb.
Adam and Caroline Cels will be on sabbatical and refreshment leave for 2021. They are looking forward to a year of professional development and time with their family. They will return rested for the 2022 school year.
Whaea Elisha and her whanau are moving to the Hawkes Bay. We would like to acknowledge and thank Elisha for the huge impact that she has had on Te Huruhi School and for supporting all learners, Tamariki and Kaiako, with their skill acquisition in Te Reo Maori.
We have interviewed a number of exciting and passionate new teachers and look forward to introducing them to you in the coming weeks via the newsletter and in person at the beginning of 2021.
