Northern Wellington Citizenship Award for 2022

By Urs Cunningham | Posted: Friday November 25, 2022

Musa Hisham is the very worthy recipient of the year 6 leadership award for Amesbury School this year.

Since 2015 the local Northern Wellington schools have awarded a year 6 or year 8 student leader with the Citizenship Award each year. The idea was created by former Councillor Malcom Sparrow, who firmly believed in celebrating and promoting leadership and citizenship in our tamariki and rangatahi. 

For 2022 this award was presented to Musa by Brent, his very proud whānau teacher. Brent, Kalesha and Urs all attended the ceremony in Johnsonville on Friday, along with Musa's proud parents and two sisters. As Brent explained to the audience, Musa embodies manaakitanga (care and respect) and whanaungatanga (connection and belonging), and is a very caring and compassionate member of Pōhutukawa Hub.

It was a delight to share this wonderful occasion with Musa and his whānau, and we hope he is extremely proud of his quiet leadership and kind and caring friendship. Musa's name has now been added to the previous seven names on the citizenship shield that sits proudly in the cabinet in our reception area. 

Tino kino te pai, Musa - well done!
