Credit union offering scholarships After the success of last year s first ever NZCU School Scholarships, New Zealand Credit Union Auckland is again providing eight new scholarships this year totalling $3000 for the children of Credit Union members. NZCU scholarships will be given to four pri- mary or intermediate pupils of $250 each and four secondary pupils of $500 each which should pay a large part of their school expenses. We were very pleased with the quality of the applications last year. We held a special presen- tation function at our head office and it was a pleasure to meet the pupils who received the scholarships and see the pride of their parents and grandparents. It gave both the directors and staff a great thrill, says Rob Collins, Gen- eral Manager of NZCU Auckland. We look forward to another successful pres- entation this year, he says. The Scholarships will be paid to the schools in the names of the success- ful pupils for their use for any school expense such as fees, stationery, trips, etc. I believe all families would welcome the cash to help with expenses associated with station- ery, school trips, sports events and the very many other calls on the parents of today s chil- dren he says. This initiative is another example of our philosophy of people helping people. We believe that education of our young people is a major responsibility of the whole community and we need to remove as many of the barriers as possible to allow all children to participate. Applications are open and will close on Febru- ary 18 2011. Parents can collect application forms from any of the four NZCU Auckland branches in Penrose, Mt Roskill, Manukau and Airport. A special presentation function will be held for the successful pupils in early March in conjunction with Children's Day.

If you re thinking about a career change in 2011 you need to ask yourself an important question -- what do I want from work and life? That s the message from government agency Career Services in the wake of the latest Seek Satisfaction and Motiv- ation survey, which found that 70 percent of New Zealanders will con- sider a career change this year. Career Services Gen- eral Manager Opera- tions, Janet Brown, says it s not particularly sur- prising to see so many people considering a career change at this time of the year. She says the start of a new year often signals new beginnings for people as they re-assess their lives and make New Year s resolutions . If you are considering getting into something new you need to ask yourself whether you are truly happy in your cur- rent job. Are you strug- gling to motivate your- self each day? Do you find yourself compl- aining about your day to your family and friends? Do you wish you could be doing the job that some- one else is doing? Then maybe it s time to begin looking at some new career options. Career Services has a number of online inter- active tools to help people understand them- selves. www.careers.govt.nz.
