We farewell Lee Elliott

We say farewell to Lee Elliott, whose association with St Paul’s stretches over 38 years, but the past eight years she has been the school’s ESOL (English as a second language) teacher for our international students.

Lee has a real infinity with students, treats them as individuals, values their culture and has provided the best pastoral care and support to them. 

Her warm smile, empathic ear and a feeling of aroha have given our international students the comfort of feeling safe here. 

Lee has also extended her hospitality to host many international students in a homestay arrangement – many of whom will remain her life-long friends.

Lee says she will miss the gathering, supporting and being together that St Paul’s provides for their staff and students. We will miss your wit and humour, Lee. Farewell and enjoy your retirement.
