“The Tereora College Project and the Nukutere College rebuild could only be described as positive initiatives and demonstrated the Government’s commitment for caring for the youth and the future of young Cook Islanders” commented Sharleen.
Mario Robati remarked that the strategy day had “broadened his view of the world and Cook Islands society. I did not appreciate until today the CIIC group and its assets and the huge impact that they have on our country and society”.
“It’s this kind of interaction CIIC needs to build on, forming relationships with our tamariki, promoting the career paths CIIC can offer, and inspiring future leaders is what we hope to achieve by taking part in this event” said CIIC chief executive, Allan Jensen.
