CORDER, Jim. A highly respected colleague, mentor, and friend to many Principals and teachers throughout the Gisborne region. Jim worked tirelessly throughout his career to improve the educational outcomes for the many students he came into contact with as a teacher, Principal and administrator. Educa- tion was not a job for Jim, it was a passion. His influence will remain, but Jim will be sorely missed. Kua hinga te totara i te wao nui a Tane. - Arohanui, Gisborne Principal's Association.
