"I would like to thank Tutaki Youth INC for their ongoing support and my committed team of mentors, both school based and community based.

"I would also like to thank chief executive Sven Hanne and his team at the Stratford District Council, Eltham, Hawera and Opunake police who support school based and allow the mentors to go into school during work hours."
