14 Jan 2016


It is with great sadness that we announce the sad and untimely passing of Mike Tapera on Wednesday 13 January 2016.

Mike was a highly respected and valued Trustee on The St John’s Educational Trust, serving for 6 years, several of those as the Chairman of the Finance Committee. His measured wisdom and balanced insights were always immensely valued, and will be sorely missed. His loyalty to the schools and his absolute integrity and discretion informed his contributions to discussions and decisions,  and he always conducted himself with great dignity and softly spoken strength.

Our deepest sympathies go to Boni, John, Tinashe (St John’s 2000 – 2012) and Samuel, a 2016 College Prefect.
