Awards Continue for Parents Centre


11 November 2009


Following their recent success winning the Health & Well Being category at the Waitakere City Council - Infratil awards in last month, West Auckland Parents Centre has gone on to win the coverted Bigger & Better Award at the National Parents Centre AGM beating out 51 other centres for the title. The award recognizes innovation, successful marketing, growth & relationship development with both members and local businesses.


Co-President Eileen Joy also scooped the Chief Executives Choice Volunteer Award on the night. The last 18 months have been a massive process of rebuilding and rebranding for the local parents centre and have seen them introduce new courses, processes and a new look to their activities. This award is the “icing on the cake” says Joy, "it has been a huge year and it's great to have the recognition of our efforts. We couldn't have done it without the hundreds of volunteer hours our committee provides".


From here on in WAPC have their sights set of obtaining their own premises to enable them to further expand the services they offer to the Waitakere Parenting Community and are now seeking support from anyone who could help with this endeavour. West Auckland Parents Centre offers top quality antenatal classes including a practical parenting evening, and early parenting education and support through their coffee group network.

Gustav Mahler’s Seventh Symphony may be one of the least well-known of its ilk, but Edo de Waart and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra made a compelling case for a reassessment. They showed us a work of immense variety, surprising contrast and delicate shades of light and dark. More>>
