FROM THE EDITOR

Kapi-Mana News - - FRONT PAGE -

Af­ter a short break the KapiMana News staff are back in the of­fice and ready for the new year.

This week we start off with a great is­sue that fea­tures our two New Year Hon­ours List re­cip­i­ents.

Caro­line Herewini and Gay­lene Sci­as­cia have both been rightly hon­oured for the work they do in our com­mu­nity.

The hon­ours list is of­ten filled with Govern­ment work­ers, Olympians, and oth­ers al­ready in the pub­lic eye.

It is rare for Porirua peo­ple to fea­ture in the na­tional awards, de­spite the great un­sung he­roes we have here.

I would en­cour­age peo­ple to look up the nom­i­na­tion process for the Queen’s Birth­day Hon­ours - let’s get more of our he­roes recog­nised on the na­tional stage.
