Dear Brian, There are not enough words to express my gratitude to you for the wonderful and inspirational guidance you gave to my four sons and all the other students who have attended Tauranga Intermediate. You have this magical way of encouraging and supporting kids to explore their potential. You shower them with praise when they deserve it, and give them a gentle reminder to pull their socks up when they need that too! You love competition, you embrace excellence, you believe in all children and their ability to succeed. For two years each of my four sons enjoyed going to school. That says it all!
