We recently held our 2017 Graduation Ceremony at Classic Flyers in Mount Maunganui. Our graduating students, along with their friends and families, enjoyed an afternoon of celebration as we looked back at the year and honoured them for all their achievements. For some, the journey of education has just started, while others will take their newly learnt knowledge and skills and apply them in the workplace.
We also enjoyed an inspirational speech by Te Koikoi Brown who shared his journey with us and explained how he, with the help of Live for More and EmployNZ, was able to get his life back on track. In the new year Te Koikoi plans to pursue his dream of studying music.
We are extremely proud of all our graduating students and wish them all the best for the future.
Whāia te iti kahurangi ki te tūohu koe me he maunga teitei.
Seek the treasure you value most dearly: if you bow your head, let it be to a lofty mountain.
