Last Tuesday, we celebrated the Dominion Post Sport & Recreation awards. Welcoming over 800 guests, the evening was a special night of celebration bringing everyone together again in person. Congratulations to all of the finalists and winners. Read on to find out more about the winners and to see all the wonderful photos from the evening! 

The recent Power of Play Huddles held across the wider Wellington region offered an opportunity for key enablers of Play to better understand the perceptions and experiences of Play within our communities. Over 138 participants gathered to share in discussion around the topic of Play. Read more about these instrumental huddles below. 

Lastly, this week we farewell Phil Gibbons as Nuku Ora's CEO after 10 years. Phil has contributed immensely to our growth internally and within the sector, however, we are excited for Phil to take his next steps as he looks to spend more time with his whanau and mokopuna. We look forward to continuing to work with Phil on the Leading Leaders programme.
