Totara Puku Farewell


The first week of the term break we were really sad to farewell Tiffany from Totara Puku Kindergarten. Tiffany has been at Totara Puku since February 2018 and played a huge role in the setting up and opening of the centre.


Tiffany is leaving to begin a new journey in leadership with a role with Te Rito Maioha as a lecturer.


We celebrated Tiffany’s awesomeness with a party for the children and whānau... and a team dinner at Caroline’s Boatshed.
