Speaker Kirby Tania has become involved with CACTUS in Wairoa.
She is an ex British and NZ army officer, but after the birth of her daughter, Montana, she retrained as a teacher.  
Kirby is an enthusiastic promoter of the local CACTUS    (Combined    Adolescent    Challenge    Training    Unit    Support)   program which involves students from Wairoa College, & the Kura, and homeschooled students as well.  
The 8-week course encourages students to make good choices, provides basic discipline, and good role models and is increasing participants’ self poise and self-confidence, in addition to improving their fitness levels. 
The 26th intake has just finished.
