Mrs. Ross

Thanks Mrs. Ross,

Pukekohe East School

You made me aspire to be and do better than everyone else at school from walking 30 minutes to and from school everyday, to cross country running and school/home work. You applied pressure that was felt before, during and after school and that shaped me into the person I am today.

I fondly remember one morning turning up to school with a cast on my left arm because of an injury. But because of my eagerness to impress you, I folded my arms tightly, crossed my legs and sat up as straight as I could. You rewarded me at the end of assembly, with acknowledging my effort in front of the whole school. It is one of many memories that I will never forget.

So thank you Mrs Ross. You’re amazing and someone I’ll never forget.
