Rob Fenn

Grounds Manager

About Me

This is Rob. He is probably the greatest grounds manager in the world. He looks after our school as if it is his home. If he isn't on the lawnmower, he's on the leaf blower! He does so much for us all, far more than his job description for instance, carting the school tent to events for us so that our tamariki have shelter and a place to gather.
