Sir Peter Blake Leadership Award - 2015
Last Friday this very prestigious award was presented. In 2013 Dreydon Hughes won and in 2014 Tegan Kereru-Symes. This award has been created in memory of Sir Peter Blake and the renowned leader that he was. Earlier in the year, our children were asked to consider a stand out leader, in their eyes. A clear communicator, encourager, role model, ambassador, risk taker, lead by example kind of person. The votes this year were extremely close however I have great honour in announcing that Kristine Steves-Wesche was the recipient this year. This is what some of our students and staff had to say…
Kristine has only been at Te Mahia School for a short time however she has worked hard to find her identity and fit in with her peers and our school culture. When the students nominated Kristine, they spoke of her patience and tolerance with the younger students at school. Her integrity in her role as a leader is taken seriously and leadership tasks are always completed to the best of her ability. Kristine is determined she will succeed with her leadership role this year and is busy planning and preparing leadership activities for students at Te Mahia School.
If you see Kristine around, please do make a point of congratulating her like we all did at school last Friday.
