Farewell Teachers 2019

|| September 20, 2019

At the end of Term 2, One Tree Hill College said goodbye to four well-liked teachers who have left us to explore new horizons. Mr Larry Connell, a member of OTHC's Technology Department, used his vast technical knowledge to win a contract with the armed forces, while department colleague Mr Doug Walker joins his daughter teaching in Thailand. Social Sciences teacher Ms Emily Shaw gained a position at Westlake Girls High School to be closer to her home, while Ms Ashleigh Ryan our Kowhai's Whānau Co-Leader flew to Singapore to continue her teaching career.

It was sad to see such great staff members go. Year 12 student Justine Sapungan said, "I was once in Mr. Walker's class and he was awesome. It's unfortunate to see him and the others leave the school. I wish them the best of luck and I hope they enjoyed their time at OTHC." We wish the four of them all the best in their new pursuits and hope that they all enjoy the new pathways they have chosen.
