I was privileged to attend my first Pasifika awards evening in my capacity as BOT member. What a fun filled celebration! I loved the passion, emotion and enjoyment of everyone’s achievements. Such a breath of fresh air! My favourite moment was catching this young man looking after a wee brother or cousin. He was one of a group at a table who took it in turns to hold him. Heartening to see how ‘normal’ it seemed to be for them.
I was tempted today with the first of our red roses to bloom. But the momentous news that our new government is to be led by Jacinda Ardern really does beat that! A Labour/Green/NZFirst coalition calls for a wee celebration!
Back to winning ways to get in the 5th/6th play off tomorrow. We celebrated with a winning dinner out at Burger Burger. what an awesome feed!
Graduation 🎓 Day
I really need to write a longer post about this incredibly uplifting experience. I went to support Nigel receive his Post Graduate Certificate in Education (specialism Leadership in HE) thinking I’d be out if the office for an hour or so…. How wrong could one be?! (explanation coming later!)
