Today we held a special assembly to farewell Mr Gunn. The speeches and presentation of gifts made it clear Mr Gunn is going to be missed, the students with the help of Miss Zee made him a very special piece of art work in the school colours with everyones name on it. To quote a few things from the assembly – he will be missed because he shouts the staff sausage rolls for morning tea, he will be missed because he plays sports with no rules with kids, he will be missed for his use of phrases like ‘crikey’, he will be missed for his positive and encouraging attitude. Mr Gunn has left the school in a great position and the safe hands of Miss Zee who will be stepping into the role of Acting Principal until term 4. We wish Mr Gunn all the best in his new role at Netball Manawatu!
