It’s that time of year again where we are nearing the Christmas break and what a year it has been!!! We have facilitated more school presentations than ever this year with over 1000 attendees and have five new young parent graduates to join our ranks in December 2016.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the young parents 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!

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 you present in 2017!!!!! 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!!! Since I started working on this project in 2011 I have had the pleasure of graduating 29 young parents, I have watched 24 of these amazing women continue their education with 6 of them either studying or being accepted at the University level and more & more young parents applying to university each year!!!!! 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!

The Karitane Talking Realities Young Parent Program will be closed for the Christmas break between the dates of Thursday 22nd December 2016 – Monday 9th January 2016 inclusive.
