Scholarships 2018 – Congratulations to you all and big thanks to our sponsors!

Earlier this month, this awesome bunch of students were awarded their Whitireia Foundation scholarships for 2018, surrounded by proud friends and whānau. Thanks to all who attended the Awards night, and special thanks to our wonderful sponsors.

Special thanks also to Virtuoso Strings who delighted us all with their beautiful sounds.  The junior and senior orchestras of Virtuoso Strings are made up of more than 160 students from Porirua’s decile 1 and 2 schools.
