Thank you so much for installing self afficacy into me in your dynamic physical education lessons. You were always so vibrantly presented, always smiling and always asking me how I was. I was a hostel girl and you made my years at EGGS so enjoyable. You brought the best out of me and you were always ever so helpful ,caring, providing me with sporting opportunites, part time work and the want to go to school to learn and be physically active life long. Thank you so much for all your good energy, work ethic, enjoyable lessons and vibrancy for life you installed into me. I loved those years.

Thanks Mr Rick Wardrop,

Casebrook Intermediate

You were instrumental in giving me confidence and encouragement in my abilities and advocated for me when I needed it. Your caring approach to my education was the start of something special. I went on to get tertiary study and now work in a field aimed at creating better outcomes for children. I wanted to know that I have never forgotten how good you were to me. Thank you so much.

Thanks Carol Burborough,

Maeroa Intermediate

Mrs Burborough gave me confidence to think outside the square and she encouraged all of us to be our best selves. It is over 30 years since she taught me but I’ve always remembered her cause she had a great relationship with her students. Just this year, I tracked her down to thank her but I wanted to make sure other people know too. Success should be celebrated 🙂

Thanks Elizabeth Evans,

Palmerston North Girls' High School

Thank you Mrs Evans for being an amazing Classical Studies teacher.  Your teaching developed my appreciation for debate and rhetoric, balance and beauty, form and structure.  Your lessons have stayed with me for three decades, which strikes me as an outstanding achievement: I was at the Parthenon for the first time this month and your lessons about the history, harmony and meaning of that ancient place came back to me vividly.  Thank you.
