Dear Whānau


Staff farewells

At the end of this year we will farewell Diane Scarrow and Sacha Bradley who have accepted teaching positions at schools closer to their homes. Emma Fordham has accepted a teaching position at her old high school and Allen Hsu will be taking a year’s leave to travel overseas. We wish them all well, and thank them for their wonderful contribution to Farm Cove Intermediate.
