FIRST STEP OUTDOORS - we were proud to sponsor an Award for
Graeme Dingle Foundation Waikato - Excellence Awards:
Outstanding participation from a year nine student in STARS - Jarrod Leslie, Fairfield College.
Excerpt from MC’s speech introducing Jarrod FYI
Our outstanding year nine for this year has provided great support and encouragement towards others during STARS lessons and even offers to help out his Peer mentors. He has fully participated in the programme from Day 1, offering ideas and opinions, and taking part in all activities. Some of these activities included some major challenges such as Caving, Rockclimbing
and abseiling. This student is always willing to give things ago with a positive attitude to encourage others. He has increased in self-confidence and is really developing the ability to speak to both people he knows well and not so well. He always works to the very best of his ability which is why Jarrod Leslie receives tonight’s award for Outstanding participation from a year nine student in STARS. Pokarakara for Jarrod.
Well done Jarred - you are amazing! Kate :)
