7 of our students recently graduated from the Tula’i Pacific Youth Leadership Programme 2022.
Funded by Henderson-Massey, Waitākere Ranges, and Whau local boards, the programme has been running since 2012 and aims to provide leadership skills to Pasifika young people in Years 12 and 13.
Fourty-four young people from West Auckland high schools are part of this three-month leadership programme with modules tailored to Pasifika youth needs including Identity and Culture, Leadership, Resilience, Health and Wellbeing, Teamwork, Community Service, Contributing to Community, and Digital Discipline (social media).
In addition to the leadership days, parent evening, and weekly modules, a group camp was held in July-it focussed on teamwork and leadership, with students bonding through activities, games, and course recaps.
Our fabulous 7 represented Waitākere College well. We are so proud of them!
