Secondary School and Community Engagement

Mā te huruhuru, ka rere te manu. Adorn the bird with feathers, so it may fly. Kia ora! Education is a waka that can help us all to navigate the waters of knowledge. I am thankful to support our youth as they pathway forward. I enjoy connecting with secondary schools and in community groups and am inspired to see our youth allowing their dreams to take flight. What a blessing!
