After 43 years teaching and more than 10 years at Puketapu School, Mr J is hanging up his Principal’s boots and heading off into retirement.

We have enjoyed some great times with Mr J and we made sure his last week was one to remember: during the week Mr J enjoyed a fun ‘Tour de Mike’ dinner; an amazing morning tea from More FM; a moving final assembly featuring ‘Mary the Fairy’; an afternoon tea with many visitors and tributes.

Thank you Mr J, for everything you have done for Puketapu School, and we hope you have a wonderful retirement.
