The Waitaki Multicultural Council held our AGM last night. It was wonderful to have a great turnout, including several newcomers to the district.

We welcomed new committee members Pravin Prassad, Hendriani Trisaptayuni and Cathy Bauer, as well as returning committee – Jess Thomas, Talanoa Palu (Treasurer), Socorro Laraga (Secretary) Robert Roodnat (Vice Chair – Co-chair) and Maria Buldain (Chairperson).

Huge thank you to Johanna Schoneveld who was the Central South Island Champion for Race Unity Aotearoa, and shared her speech with us. Our guest speaker and new life member Helen Algar who shared her story of aroha and inclusion. Thank you so much Helen.
