“Kia Tupu, Kia Hua, Kia Puāwai – To grow, To prosper, To sustain”
Xanthe Barton (Waitaha) is the inaugural recipient of the joint collaboration between GHA, Victoria University and Waitaha Charitable Trust. Xanthe will be supported with a $12,000 scholarship to help her achieve her goals along with an internship at GHA in 2020.
This exciting new scholarship was initiated after discussions between Vivienne Robinson (Waitaha Charitable Trust), Paul Meredith (Victoria University) and Glenn Hawkins (GHA), To provide a more meaningful contribution to emerging Māori talent undertaking study. Our General Manager, Mereana Toroa, highlighted the uniqueness of the tripartite arrangement.
Mereana was also pleased to announce the first ever GHA internship which offers a Māori student the opportunity to gain valuable experience in a chartered accounting firm while also receiving the living wage.
Growing Māori talent is a key priority for GHA.
