Thank you to all those who joined us in welcoming Mr. Linington to Papakura Normal School.

A very special thanks to our kaumaatua and School Leaders from Kereru Park School who assisted with the powhiri. Thanks also to all the supporters from Royal Oak Intermediate School, and the many Principals and Deputy Principals from the Papakura community who were here to welcome Mr. Linington and to farewell Mrs. Morgan.

Ngaa mihi aroha kia koutou katoa.
