Senior Rangers, Moeroa Atariki, from Mangaia, and June Punua, from Atiu, were promoted to Young Leaders while they are schooling here on the main island.
Mrs Teio Kea was ordained as the new Captain on May 11 during a Uniform Organisation Church parade by Nikao CICC Ekalesia Pastor, Rev Aratangi Aratangi along with the Boys Brigade new Captain Saunaki Rasmussen.
“It is going to be a challenge for me; however it is my prayer to ask the Lord to give me the wisdom, knowledge and strength to carry my post as the new Captain,” Kea said.
She started her guiding journey on the island of Atiu in the CICC Ekalesia and then to Avarua Girl Guides Company. She joined the Nikao Girl Guides Company early in 2000 as a Leader.
Nikao Girl Guides Company was first established on November 15, 1955 by the late Marguerite Story.
One lady who is still in the movement since her first debut in guiding is Ms Pani Ben in Titikaveka, who has been a National Training Adviser, Chief Commissioner, Outer Island Commissioner and held other national posts for many years. -- Release
