  • Merry Christmas from Ed     24 December 2018

    This update is dedicated to Dr Gillian Corbett and her team of dedicated nurses and administrative personnel at the Tauranga Cancer Centre! Their thoughtfulness and care over the past few months has been amazing!

    Furthermore, my family and I are blown away by the generous donations and supportive comments that continue to appear on the Give a Little page!

    To Claire for her continuing and amazing support, as well as Margaret, Kimbo and Sarah!

    A very Happy Christmas to everyone!

    I would be quite justified in saying that the response to the “Give a Little” page has been not only overwhelming but astonishing in the extreme! In fact beyond my wildest imaginings!

    Claire has masterminded this whole initiative with the support of Sarah Smythe, Kimbo Whyte and Margaret Keam and of course Otumoetai College!

    The generosity of spirit - contributions and comments - have made me realise that my life’s work as a teacher was not in vain! That my students did not just learn about how to phrase and punctuate sentences and write essays about some obscure texts but that they also learnt something of life’s lessons!

    I wish to dedicate this update to

    Claire and to all my past students and what they taught me. And for allowing me to always be myself - eccentric as it may have been at times! And, to all of those others who have been so generous in their giving of both the donations and the sentiments expressed. It is healing in itself!! Believe me! And, deeply humbling!

    Thank you, everyone! Whakawhetai koe, katoa!
