Students then show evidence of work experience or volunteering to achieve the award. Well done to ākonga:  Georgia Howard, Kassedy Taitoko, Felicity Tana, Toni Johnston, Holly Nixon, Sherene Hooper, Dorothy Gillbanks. They all displayed so many strengths – team working, resilience, quiet determination and positive attitudes in particular.
