On behalf of the Board of Trustees I wish to inform you that with great reluctance we have accepted the resignation of our Principal, Dave Randell, as from the end of this year 2017.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, community, staff and students we cannot thank Dave enough for his dedication and commitment to our school over the past 17 years. Thirty years as a successful Principal is an amazing achievement.

Hi all

We don't realize how valuable everyday things are until we lose them.

Tonight we will all go home to a dry house, many people in Edgecumbe don't even have a house to go home, to let alone a dry one .

So, what are we going to do?
