King's Honour for Nua Silipa

We were so proud to hear that the wonderful Nua Silipa has been named in the King's Honours List, as an Officer of the NZ Order of Merit! (ONZM) for services to Pacific education.

Nua has had a long association with Avondale College, as a teacher, guidance counsellor, parent and Board member.

Over the past 35 years Nua's commitment to our school, community and students has been immeasurable. She has maintained an unwavering focus on our goal of achieving better education outcomes for our Pasifika students, within and beyond the classroom.

Nua is a worthy recipient of this honour!
