Kia ora koutou. Nga mihi o te tau hou. New Year greetings to you all.
The New Year holidays are a time to enjoy the long summer days and reconnect with our family and friends. Spending time during the holidays at home, at the beach or at a park with our friends and whānau reminds us just how important our families are to us and our society.
During 2014 the family will be in the spotlight as the United Nations marks the 20th anniversary of the International Year of the Family.
