NYLD//14 Whangarei event cancelled

Unfortunately the National Young Leaders Day event for primary and intermediate students in Whangarei, which was to be held on Monday 16 June, has been cancelled.

“It is important that we receive support from local schools and the wider Northland community to make this event successful. Unfortunately we have not seen the uptake from schools, which is why we have made the hard decision to cancel this event,” says Annette Fale, NYLD manager at The Parenting Place.

NYLD events, which have been held annually in major cities since 2001, feature inspirational talks from New Zealand leaders and role models.

“We do hope that we will be able to return to Whangarei in the near future,” says Annette.
