COVID-19 Update


Kia ora koutou

We wish you and your whānau safety.  Like all of Aotearoa, we have been through this before and our resilience, tenacity and community spirit drove us through.

This is a busy time for participants with study and exams looming, stay on track and make this time count.

So doing the Award, it’s a great time to keep focused on what you can do while in lockdown. During 2020 you took up the wero, worked in the community, exercised locally, learnt so much new stuff and through your creativity and adaptability, achieved a lot.  As in 2020, we are here to support all you seek to achieve and will respond to your innovation and ideas.

The Award team are now all back in the office and ready to help you do the mahi. If you have specific questions, please don't hesitate to contact us. You can either email us on [email protected] or phone me directly on 027 645 6696. We will provide another update when we can around COVID-19 adaptations once we have a clearer idea of long this lockdown is likely to last. We have a newsletter coming up with a reminder of the adaptations and flexibility around section completion for life during mate korono and noho taratahi (Covid, isolation/lockdown).   

He iti hau mairangi e tū te pāhokahoka

After the storm, the rainbow appears

Kia kaha, kia toa, kia manawanui
