To our Hagley leavers

Mike Fowler —

This whakatauki captures my thoughts as you leave Te Puna Wai o Waipapa, Hagley College:

Kia hoki atu te waewae

kia hoki mai te whakairo

kia whaka tōmuri

te haere whakamua.

As you leave this place, let your thoughts and memories return - walk into your future with your eyes fixed on the past.

You are part of a unique 162 year old secondary school.

Be proud to have been at Hagley, be proud to speak well and to think well of this place, your place, Te Puna Wai o Waipapa, Hagley College.

My very best wishes for 2021 and beyond.

Haere rā

Ngā mihi nui kia koutou

Mike Fowler
