Kia ora Playcentre Whānau

The Trustee Board met last weekend for our first meeting of 2021. Our tamariki, centres and rōpu Māori were forefront in our minds as we went about our mahi during this three-day meeting.  

We hope everyone was able to have some time to recharge over the Christmas and New Year and our thoughts are with centres in Auckland dealing with the ever-evolving pandemic situation.

Strategic Survey 2020 

Thank you to everyone who took the time and responded to our strategic survey 2020. The feedback was valuable and there are some useful comments for the trustee board to review which may be helpful with future planning. Unfortunately, there were not enough responses to this survey to make it statistically valid therefore, no conclusions can be drawn from the data. We hope that we can gain a higher response rate to the Strategic Survey 2021 which comes out later in the year.

Playcentre Aotearoa AGM 2021 

Based on feedback from AGM 2019 and the pandemic situation AGM 2020 was held by zoom and we were to complete the required business in a few hours with more equitable attendance and increased member participation. Given the success we had in 2020 we will be holding AGM 2021 online again on Saturday 31st July. Further details will be advised in the April Bulletin. 

Centres and Rōpū Māori, supported by the Trustee Board, are the governors of our organisation. Thank you for being active governors of Te Whānau Tupu Ngātahi o Aotearoa.  Together we will see Playcentre thrive.
