Family Happenings

This is my grandson, Tahi who this week graduated with a Level 2 Fitness Trainer and Level 3 Personal Trainer certifcates. We are very proud of him. He has had such a hard row to hoe and is a sportsperson rather than an academic. He is also a brilliant artist but I don't think he sketches much these days. When he was eleven he injured his ac cartilage and growth plate playing rugby (which he loved). That ended his rugby as the growth plate on on side of his knee stopped growing so his leg grew in a bow shape. They couldn't do much till he stopped growing and then he had major surgery and plates to jack up the short side of the leg and let the bone fill in the gap. He started rowing and was doing so well but then the coach left and they couldn't get a replacement. He has applied for a couple of jobs in the fitness industry but is working for a delivery company in the meantime - he is such a good reliable kid/young man. All I want for Christmas is for him to get the position at the Waipa Fitness Centre but they probably won't appoint anyone now till the New Year -This would be his :dream job"
