1982-1984 / Three-year Diploma (Henderson Campus)

I remember the social interaction – whether in class with lecturers and students, or in Church Involvement Week. I enjoyed playing volleyball with lecturers and students.


My time at College gave me the courage to do some full-time tertiary study, and to attempt to do things outside my comfort zone.


I went on to Massey University’s School of Education and for several years taught English to a small group of refugee women. I ran youth holiday programmes for refugees from Afghanistan, Congo, Iraq, Djibouti, and Cambodia. I did this for 30-40 years.


Currently I am cleaning a pub, but still have contact with my refugee community – these days mostly people from the Democratic Republic of Congo.


I am grateful for the privilege of going to College, and the many people who supported me while there. I’m also grateful for the confidence I gained from God to push myself into situations I would not normally think to try.
