Red Shirts Program
On Friday 2nd June, six of our girls (Taerere Houpapa, Huia Rauhina, Paige Cribb, Natalia Conrad, Shadanae Crown-Stratford and Stevie Huhu-Wereta) travelled over to Taupo for the final day and graduation of their 10 week Red Shirts program. Their Warehouse supervisors, Shona Ketu and Barbara Lockwood presented them with their certificates and expressed how much the girls had contributed to the team on Fridays. They noticed the girls’ confidence grow over the weeks and said it was fantastic to see them really coming out of their shells towards the end. Thank you to Shona and Barbara for providing a lovely spread of food for the graduation. Also, thank you to Kim Clark-Ware for tutoring the girls with their book work and to Radford Briggs for transporting the girls there and back every week.
Through this program the girls have earned 22 level 2 credits and a Customer Service Award -Well done girls!
