To our “new mums” Congratulations on graduating – you made it!!!!!! We are so happy to have you on board with us and look forward to seeing what 2019 brings for you!!!!! We are super proud of you all and feel very honoured to have supported you in your pathway to Tafe/University; I can’t wait to hear about all your studies next year!!!!!

To our “older Mums” well done!!!!!! I am in awe of the hard work and dedication that you throw into our program and your children, you are all amazing and we are so proud of each and every one of you!!! I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you involved in the Karitane Talking Realities Young Parent Program, without you this program would not run so smoothly and you are all amazing and I’m so lucky to work with you all!

Since I started working on this project in 2011 I have had the pleasure of graduating 39 young parents, I have watched 29 of these amazing young women continue their education with 7 of them either studying or being accepted at UNIVERSITY!!!!! 5 out of 7 of our University applicants have started working in their chosen career fields which include a Primary School Teacher, Lawyer, Registered Nurse, Community & Corrections Caseworker & a Domestic Violence Advocacy Worker!!!! Words cannot express how proud we are of you and it is an honour to watch you grow and be a part of that – keep up the fabulous work!
