Say cheers to our Volunteers!

Fire & Emergency NZ

Over 80% of Fire and Emergency is made up of volunteers. Without them and their support crew, we wouldn’t be who we are today.

So this National Volunteer Week, we’re thanking more than 11,500 of our volunteers for missing precious moments in their lives to protect our communities.

Make sure you say thanks as well by leaving a comment below. #cheerstoourvolunteers

Things that surprise Kiwis returning to NZ

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
I'm working on a travel story for Stuff about the things that have surprised returning Kiwis about New Zealand. If you have recently returned from overseas or know someone who has, it would be great to hear about the things that have stood out for you, for better or for worse. Whether it's to do with the weather, the cost of things, the public transport, the food, the housing, the people or something else entirely, we'd be keen to hear about it. Please remember that your comment may be included in the article, unless you say you don't want it to be. Thank you.

This degree changed my life!

Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi

Te Tohu Toi Tangata - Bachelor of Humanities

Meet Christina Nuku who graduated with majors in Indigenous Studies and Policy. Through Awanuiārangi, Christina experienced a 3-month exchange programme at the University of Northern British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. She shares “the exchange connected me with the Nisga’a people, First Nations tribal systems, communities and hauora programmes. It informed my studies and opened my mind. It was a genuine privilege to connect with the tangata whenua there, and an opportunity I would never otherwise have had”

“The difference at Awanuiārangi is the whanaungatanga. Our kaiako cultivated a supportive and nurturing environment”.

Study remotely with us in Semester 2!
