Auckland North News – June 2017

Tēnā koutou

I hope for all those mothers out there that you had a lovely Mother’s Day last month and enjoyed celebrating being a foster mum and all the amazing work you do.  Remember if you need support of any kind please contact me.

It is definitely sneaking into the colder months now and a real chill is here, so stay warm.

Our conference this year will be in Christchurch on 28–29th of September 2017. It will again be an amazing event.  Start planning now, while flights are less expensive.

A huge thanks to all those that volunteered their time at one of the Z Stations we were part of the fundraising/token popping collection race.  Results will be out soon and we will announce the details.

Don’t forget to join our Facebook Support page. This is kept up-to-date with trainings, coffee groups, events and other information.

Have you heard about Voyce – Whakarongo Mai?  If not, go to their web site to find out more about them and their role with children in care.
