Excellence Awards 2018
What an incredible heartfelt celebration it was at 2018’s Annual Excellence Awards held at the Sir Paul Reeves building, AUT.
The evening celebrated the incredible achievements of our young people and we were extremely honoured to hear their inspiring stories.
“The Awards are an amazing opportunity to celebrate this country’s future – our children and our young people. It provides a valuable platform for them to recognise their own strengths and muster, from within, the conviction to overcome challenges, both big and small. It is also a reminder of the incredible work that our mentors and volunteers deliver, day in and day out, for children and young people throughout the country: says Sir Graeme Dingle.
For the 250 who attended, the evening was an opportunity to hear the personal stories of a number of graduates who had taken part in the Foundation’s transformational journey, and the positive impact It has on their lives.Find out more
