It’s time to say goodbye to Christchurch and hello to Aukland. I leave Christchurch with many happy and rich memories of the City, the people, the children, families and staff at the Champion Centre who made me feel so very welcome, and with a sense of understanding of a population who constantly re-create themselves.
The innovative and creative approaches they take to rebuilding their lives after the disruptive effects of earthquakes pervades all aspects of life and can be seen across the city.
They are also a population of explorers and travellers and hence very welcoming to people who travel to see them. I’ve really enjoyed my time here but its time to move on to pastures new and the exciting possibilities that Aukland and Hamilton have to offer, starting with two FASD seminars.
