Kia ora Koutou,
A friendly reminder that we have a WeCAN (Waitakere Children's Action Network) meeting next week: Wednesday 13 November, 10-11.30am in the Toru Room, MPHS Hub West, 27 Corban Ave Henderson. We are looking forward to hearing from Lil Clark to learn more about HIPPY (Home Interaction Programme for Parents and Youngsters). And since this will be our final WeCAN meeting for 2019 we will look back over the year at developments in the child and youth well-being space and cast our eyes towards 2020! We would love to see you there.
That's all from me, have a great weekend everyone.

Ngā mihi nui ki a koutou katoa,
