Our Kaumatua Peter Heke sadly passed away on August 15. We want to acknowledge the time and relationship Kaumatua Peter had with Glendene School. His children were foundation pupils and we have two of his grandchildren as pupils.
On Tuesday 18 August, Kaumatua Peter journeyed up North via his old street and past the school. Glendene School, Lupesina pre-school, Our Kids Early Childhood Centre, past pupils and parents farewelled Kaumatua Peter by standing outside the school gates and honouring him with a haka. It was a moving experience. R.I.P. Kaumatua Peter.
