Kia ora everyone,

I hope your month has gone well?

It has been busy here in National Office. We had a great few days at the end of June when all the Regional Coordinators from around New Zealand gathered here for training. It was wonderful to meet everyone in person finally. We were very busy but we managed to get in a couple of nice meals and lots of laughter.

As you will be seeing from your emails, training for Term Three has started. Please have a look at what’s on offer for your area and don’t hesitate to call me if you have any questions. I really encourage you all to come along. If there is an area of training you are interested in, that is not on offer in your area, let us know and we can consider it in our planning for Term Four.
