Happy ten year work anniversary to these fantastic teachers

Happy ten year work anniversary to these fantastic teachers

Sociology teacher Justin Peters and Deputy Principal Jordan Eskra recently celebrated their ten year anniversary of working at ACG Senior College.

What’s been the highlight of your decade at the school?

Mr Peters – Placing second as the most inspiring teacher in New Zealand.

Mr Eskra – The trips I have taken with the students to some pretty crazy countries.

What’s your favourite thing about teaching at ACG Senior College?

Mr Peters – We let students be themselves and don’t get hung up on side issues as so many schools do, like patrolling uniform and idolising sports stars!

Mr Eskra – The students. They are given a freedom and respect unlike any school in NZ and every year for ten years I have seen this empower each year group to do some pretty amazing things.

Congratulations to you both!
