Thanks Bill Tooley,

Sir Douglas Bader Intermediate School

Mr Tooley! You are amazing and I wish my babies get the chance to experience the dedication, commitment, manaakitanga and kindness that myself and many other students at Bader received. Your passion for helping us was instilled in my “hard drive” permanently which I have been able to pass on to other children I work with. I hope you read this, and understand how special you are to both myself and alot of others from Mangere. Te Kakano – The Seed was our motto, a seed which you have planted in all of us to aim high and succeed!
