Former Pupil wins Prime Minister’s Award

Josiah Tualamali’i, former Middleton Grange pupil,, current University of Canterbury Political Science and History student, and Pasifika youth leader, won the 2016 Prime Minister’s Pacific Youth Award for Leadership & Inspiration, sponsored by Air New Zealand.

Josiah has overcome personal obstacles to embrace his Pacific identity, and hopes to forge a career as an academic in political science and history. The Prime Minister’s Pacific Youth Award prize – which includes a trip to Geneva to witness leadership on the global stage – will provide Josiah with an invaluable experience in diplomacy and he hopes to share his story to inspire others on his return.
