Learning from Linden School Principal

We had an address from Melanie Deans, Principal of Linden School. Melanie Deans Linden SchoolWhile the school now has only 100 pupils (compared to earlier days of Tawa when there were only two schools and Linden had 900 pupils) they have an impressive range of programmes for their children and a high standard of dedicated teachers.

A lower decile number (due to socio-economic levels) can lead to a perception that is completely at variance with the high standards achieved. The school was very appreciative of the visits by Tawa Rotarians with free dictionaries for all pupils.
