Hamilton Multicultural Cultural Service Trust Refugee

The Waikato Migrant Centre have been long term hosts of the Refugee CIH programme in Hamilton. Here HMST (Hamilton Multi Cultural Services Trust) staff give the thumbs up to the new training pod recently installed for CIH, ESOL and other training, including 10 computers, data projector and sound system. The Hamilton team comprises HMST management Ellie & Tania; Family Liaison Merzia& tutor John; Hamilton MoE Migrant Coordinator Afat and CIH’s Di Daniels. We graduated 17 families over 2013-14 including families of the Afghani interpreters. Hamilton MP’s Tim Macindoe and David Bennett are great supporters of CIH graduations. Mr Bennett realised her had said goodnight instead of Good Morning in Spanish, much to the amusement of the Colombian family graduates.
