Farewell from Miss Wells

Dear Gladstone Community,

It is with much emotion that I bid you farewell. Although I am excited for my next adventure at Hobsonville Primary School, I leave with many happy memories and good friends.

I would like to offer sincere thanks to Dave Shadbolt who forced made encouraged me to try music teaching. My initial reluctance was short lived as I discovered the joy in music education.

This has been helped by a huge number of eager, musical, kind, thoughtful, crazy, hard-working, up-for-a-challenge, curious, interested, questioning, thinking and generally wonderful children. And their supportive and generous parents.

I wish you all the very best for the years to come and hope to bump into many of you around Mt Albert, as I’ll still be living in the community.

Fondest regards

Jessica Wells

  1. Go well, Miss Wells! We’ll miss you. I’m very grateful to you for all the amazing musical opportunities you’ve given our children, both in class and in the ECAs and other out of class activities you’ve arranged. My kids have loved it! As a parent, I really value the HUGE benefits that come from music and have plenty of it taught, both informally and formally in childhood, and I’m keeping my fingers and toes crossed that we will be getting another fantastic music teacher coming to Gladstone next term. Thanks again for all your amazing work with our children.

  2. Spread the musical happiness Ms. Wells.
    Thanks for nurturing roots of music in little hearts.
    You will surely be missed and remembered.

  3. Best wishes at your new school. You are a kind and wonderful teacher – Kike and Bisi have both loved being in your music class and choir.
