Tēnā koutou katoa,
The last 6 months has proven to be very affirming for all of the positive work we are doing – with a lot of exceptional prisoner feedback around our in-person classes, as well as our correspondence course.
The biggest success of note is the review and refresh of our correspondence course programme.
We have engaged a contractor to overhaul the existing content to ensure it is current, accessible and reflective of our culture and unique needs.
Whakataka te hau ki te uru,
Whakataka te hau ki te tonga.
Kia mākinakina ki uta,
Kia mātaratara ki tai.
E hī ake ana te atākura he tio,
he huka, he hauhunga.
Haumi e! Hui e! Tāiki e!
