Farewell to Ms Eves

Deborah Eves (Puriri 1) will be leaving us at the end of the year to take up a position at the Brethren School in Maungaturoto, commencing at the start of next year. We would like to thank her for all the work she has done in Puriri 1 this year, and wish her all the best at her new school. 

Welcome to Mrs Sands
