#HecticHolidays @ Partners Porirua
These term 3 Holidays have been super busy at Partners Porirua.
With a two day budgeting course, around 35 young people through the first week for help getting their Learners Licence, by second week we were all ready for a holiday! Nevertheless, we thrived on seeing so many young people getting their licences and making their own budgets, we had more Learners Licence course across the whole second week, as well as a 2 day parenting course with some wonderful mamas and their super cute bubbas.
We send you warm and positive vibes as many rangatahi start their preparation for exam season.
