#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.


The opening of Te Tuna o Cannons Creek.

The students have taken their inspiration and ideas from Patricia Grace’s book ‘Watercress Tuna and the Children of Champion Street’ written in the ‘80’s, which features the building the mural is on.
