Scholarships 2021 – Congratulations to our amazing students!

Class of 2021 – Congratulations!

March is the month we introduce our Whitireia scholarship recipients to their incredible sponsors in a moving ceremony, also attended by proud whānau. This year has been all the more special, given the Alert Level events of 2020 meant we had no opportunity to gather to celebrate our recipients in the previous year.  

2020 was a challenging year for students everywhere. With the various Covid Alert Levels, and much study moved online, it is significant that many of our 2020 recipients have again been awarded a scholarship in 2021 – those students met their challenges and they excelled. We salute their enthusiasm and their commitment. To all our recipients for 2021 – gaining a scholarship is no small achievement – we’re proud of you!

Anything to do with people and the environment and I'm interested! I have been writing and commenting about education, the environment and other community-related matters since 2006. I'm a compulsive researcher. In 2009, I finished a thesis on Kapiti's water issues and am still researching outcomes there. This website and the work I do as a trustee for the Whitireia Foundation are part of my aspiration to contribute to 'shaping more sustainable communities'...also the title of my thesis. Look it up - it's free at www.j.co.nz.
