At our Gala Dinner this year we premiered this epic video. Not one, not two, but a whole flat of TupuToa interns! Dexter Rapana, Te Rina West, Whitinga Harris, Dion Westrupp and Hareta Passfield (absent in video) were successful applicants of our Internship Programme this Summer. They interned with Watercare, Tourism New Zealand, SkyCity, Auckland Council and Clemenger Group. Kerira Tapene, the sixth member of their flat, was a TupuToa intern the year prior and had her contract extended with our principal partner BNZ. No doubt these guys will go on to accomplish so much! But these rangatahi are most proud of their tikanga Māori and they carry this with them everywhere they go. If you’re the average of the people you spend the most time with, then this lot has got it covered. Go on then! Encourage your friends to apply and seize the opportunities available to you! Who’s our next group of TupuToa flatties? #TupuToa
