Here we are in Term 2! I hope the school holidays brought some relief from your busy routines and the chance to enjoy some family/whanau time.

Mother’s Day is on Sunday 12 May and what a good excuse to take the opportunity for some self -care. Perhaps a ‘self-appreciation’ day alongside the thoughts and appreciation from those around you. Valuing yourself is a gift too. I think this little picture captures what parenting children in our care develops in you. 

We have a great selection of Discussion sessions and workshops across the North West region planned for this term – seven in total. This includes another visit to Waitara where Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder will be discussed and of course Taumarunui have a full day workshop on Friday 17 May presented by FASD Ruapehu NZ. Please see the flyer below.

To register for workshops, check out the schedule here.
