Be extraordinary! Be determined! Be the best you can be! These were some of the key messages imparted at Te Runanganui o Ngati Porou’s site at the 2015 Tairawhiti Careers Expo.
This is the third year the Runanganui has supported the two day event which was held in Gisborne in March, and over three thousand people (including students, whanau members and teachers) attended.
Representatives from Te Runanganui o Ngati Porou Group’s social service, health and commercial divisions were on hand to have a korero with rangatahi about their future career ambitions and to also provide them with information about networks and opportunities which could help them to achieve their goals.
The Runanganui kaimahi also ran free health checks, and a competition which students entered by completing a survey form. The winners of the competition were drawn shortly afterwards and are published here.
