Kidz First Long Service celebration

This year's Kidz First Long Service celebration recognized 15 people.

Together, they've collectively contributed an impressive 200 years of dedicated mahi to our young tamariki and their whaanau. 

Clinical Director of Kidz First Richard Matsas says it's been a pleasure to present the 10- and 20-year long-service awards for those working in the Kidz First division.

"Every year, this is a chance to celebrate the hard work these individuals offer to the health and well-being of children and young people in our community.

"When I looked around the room, I saw these valuable team members who love and are passionate about their work. To them, I say thank you and congratulations for their achievement."​
