We are pleased to announce that Georgia-Rae Flack, of Puketeraki has been awarded the 2013 Otago Polytechnic Rūnaka Scholarship. Georgia-Rae is in her first year, and is studying towards a Certificate in Health (level 4). This will assist her application to an Otago Polytechnic degree in nursing.

We are proud of the commitment Georgia-Rae has made, and continues to make, to the rūnaka. She puts her all into everything she does and we are certain that she will do the same in her study. Her choice of career doesn’t surprise us and we are grateful to Otago Polytechnic for helping to lift the financial burden of tertiary study Georgia-Rae would otherwise have faced this year.
