I have had 4 children at gulf harbour ,3 were foundation students . Johns vision and that of his staff helped to encourage my children to push there boundrys ,and have some have revisited the tongariro crossing. They have also excelled academically ,a doctor ,an army officer ,one just finished a human rights masters on top of a law degree ,the youngest is studying law . I am sure that without this start in education they would not be the people they are today thankyou
