This National Volunteer Week, we’re recognising all the amazing volunteers who form the backbone of emergency response in Aotearoa and support their communites every day.
THANK YOU, VOLUNTEERS!
When Aotearoa faces challenging times, Kiwis always step up to support people in need. Volunteers are instrumental in ensuring that we get through, together.

“Every day, a network of 11,000 Red Cross volunteers and members across the country help us respond to disasters, settle new Kiwis, help run our shops, deliver Meals on Wheels, teach former refugees how to drive, sew curtains for families in need, and so much more. Last financial year, Red Cross volunteers gave close to 120,000 hours of their time. They are the hands and feet of almost everything we accomplish,” says Niamh Lawless, our Secretary General.

The SMC Pasifika Student and Parent Committee are proud to present their first ever Pasifika Roots Talanoa. This is a free event which will be held on Saturday 18 July in the St Mary’s College Cecilia Maher Hall here at 11 New Street, Ponsonby, Auckland.

As this is our first Talanoa, we are in need of a small amount of financial support to help us bring it all together. If you can help in any small way please email jsheehan@stmaryak.school.nz
