With Local Body Elections coming up in October 2019, the team from the Electoral Commission came and presented to our Porirua centre’s teaching team in May.
The Electoral Commission followed up with some workshops in classes at the beginning of term 3. As a result, the majority of students have been enrolled to vote and the Porirua centre will follow up by taking students to vote.
Wonderful to see civic participation in action – helping newer Kiwis to become more involved in life in New Zealand!
PHOTO Election workshop with ESOL Literacy classes – our Cultural and Language Assistants translated the message about Local Body elections.
