We are investing in our future and asking if you would do the same.

Valour is a powerful word that is rich in history, mana (integrity) and for our young people an example of hope.

It is through this hope that our students have an amazing opportunity to travel to Europe this year on our Developing Men of Valour Tour.

To be able to travel overseas and connect globally is a highlight, but this trip is about much more. It’s about our students DARING TO DREAM by paying homage to Men of Valour, identifying role models, developing their mental wellness, physical wellness, academic pathways, character and work ethic.

The tour is a platform for change that is aimed at supporting our students to be life ready, career ready and aspire to a positive future.

Getting ready for Europe :)  9 November 2018

Kia ora Whānau,

Just wanted to send a massive THANK YOU to you all for each and every koha (donation) we have received... Also wanting to thank those who have supported our young men with merchandise purchases, helped us pick up rubbish at McLean Park, worked the long nights stocktaking at The Warehouse, The multiple sausage sizzles, hangi fundraisers and the amazing opportunities for them to earn their funds with Mr Apple, Bostock & Crasborn!

All of which have added immeasurable value to their kete (basket) of learning and developing their character!!!

Our plane tickets are booked and we are ready to leave on the 2nd of December!

To date we have raised $120k and still need to raise a further $30k before the 30th November 2018.

Below, you can see what our students have been working on to make their dreams a reality.






So please feel free to share this to anyone you might think would also be interested in supporting us as any consideration to help our taiohi to achieve this significant trip would be truly appreciated.

Thank you again Whānau for being TAA Change Makers and helping our boys dreams become reality!
