Dear Eureka Panel Members and Rotary Club Members of Wellington,
I wanted to express my sincere thanks for the fantastic last few days in Wellington.
It was an absolute privilege and honour being selected as the Eureka Teacher for 2019. An even bigger honour though was being in the presence of the talented young men and ladies who presented on Thursday.
The entire event from beginning to end was most enjoyable and your organisation faultless. Also, thank you for making me feel welcome and included throughout my time with you all.
What you do as the Eureka Trust is quite exceptional. I am sure that Sir Paul is smiling down and feeling that his legacy has been placed in good hands. Please keep the flame burning and torch held high in the years ahead, your efforts are deeply appreciated.
Once again, my very real thanks.
May the rest of your year be blessed and peaceful.
Kane Raukura AFSC
