A special goodbye

On Thursday, September 22nd, we said the fondest of goodbyes to Brody and Harlem Going. Both boys have made a wonderful impression on everyone connected with Opua School. They are excellent students, superb athletes and two of the nicest souls. They leave happiness wherever they go and we are all blessed that they have spent so long with us sharing their qualities in true Opua School fashion. We wish them all the very best in their new schools on the outskirts of Auckland and know that they will be successful and that we will hear of them and see them again in the future.

With typical Going family generosity, at assembly on Thursday all the children – 105 of them – were given a goodbye gingerbread man each to enjoy.  Thank you so much Brody, Harlem and, of course, mummy and daddy. We will miss you.

About Simon McGowan

Hello everyone. I am the new Principal at Opua School and am delighted to be so. I arrived in New Zealand in 1999, after teaching in the UK for 13 years, and very soon became the Deputy Principal at Bay of Islands College. I finished there at the end of 2012 after being appointed as the Principal of the best little school in the universe. I feel so privileged and very excited.
