Kia Ora All..

The month of May has been extremely busy with the Z Good in the Hood promotion.  It is exciting to be working with the amazing Aiga Team.    They are wanting to continue to work with us, not only in the month of May, but contribute towards some events and projects within our region.  I will keep you posted.

Just some feedback about trainings.  The trainings are all running really well. To ensure the validity of the programme and that you are able to get everything out of the time, we respectfully ask that those attending workshops to please be there by 9.00am, ready to start and we request that unless really urgent, that you could stay until the end.

Noho Ora Mai
