Twelve of our rangatahi were celebrated for their outstanding accomplishments at this year’s twelfth annual Porirua Youth Awards.
Porirua Mayor Anita Baker congratulated each of them for their hard work and achievements at the awards ceremony at Pataka last Wednesday. Recipients received up to $1500 to put towards further study or other goals.
Rangatahi participating and leading the way in education, culture and arts, environment and community work and sports feature in the awards each year.
A special thanks goes out to our Emcee’s Murray Faivalu, Allyson Tone and Tahlia Steedman who did an amazing job.
