GUEST SPEAKER

Rose Rakich – Senior Constable/Youth Aid Officer, NZ Police (Paeroa Area) was in attendance.

They organise events and trips which are overseen by police officers over and above their core duties along with volunteers. Jointly they provide opportunities for youth to experience aspects of life that many young people take for granted.
