Bullying Free NZ Week - 22nd to 26th May: So lets Speak up, Stand together and Stop bullying! 


Sister Cities New Zealand Youth Tour to China in 2018: Up to 12 talented senior high school students from schools across Wellington will be selected to join a 10 day tour of New Zealand's sister cities in China in April next year, including Beijing, Shanghai and Xiamen. The aim of the tour is to give young New Zealanders an experience of the local business, government and cultural life of the places visited, as well as showcase and strengthen bilateral relations between us and our China-based sister cities. Delegates that participate in the tour will gain a stronger understanding of the local culture and what kinds of New Zealand businesses and organisations operate there, which we hope may empower them to consider an international future.Please note you need to be a school student in 2018.  See Ms Hazledine for more details or go to www.sistercities.org.nz/youthtour
