This weekend we're taking up an exciting opportunity!

Tune in to "Educating for Social Change" on Access Radio (106.1FM) on Sunday 22 September from 4 - 5pm, to hear two of our members, David and Jane, and Daryl from Island Bay Toastmasters, talk about what Toastmasters is, what we do and what we get out of it.

We got the chance to do this as a result of some successful promotional visits with the students and teachers at the English Teaching Colleges in Wellington and Lower Hutt. The Toastmasters who took part had a great time meeting everyone and it was a real bonus to get the radio interview.
