Our Duffy Heroes

Our Duffy School Leaders

What a great surprise to see Anaru and Savannah back on Gilberthorpe territory.  They came back to their old school to speak with the Senior Hub about why reading is important to them.  We were so impressed with how well they spoke and the positive messages they shared.  Our Caught Being Good award recipients were handed their awards by Savannah and Anaru.
Ka mau te wehi!

We had to get a quick selfie with their old teacher...(not old like she's old).
