The Ministry for Pacific Peoples has published an article on 26 May 2019 titled 'Fono a chance to sow long-term seeds for the future', available here. Extracts from the article follow:
Talanga ‘a Waitaki was formed under the Oamaru Pacific Island Network to support local Pacific teachers to organise a workshop for Pacific parents to discuss their children’s education.
These parents felt they needed better support so they could be stronger champions for their children at school.
Hana and a group of passionate Pacific parents formed a steering committee and helped set up a new Pasifika PowerUP Plus PowerStation for their local community in Oamaru. There are now 20 PowerUp stations in the country.
During the fono, she presented on behalf of both OPICG and Talanga ‘a Waitaki about initiatives PowerUp Flexi Plus and Reading Together® 2019.
