Coordinator - Rosie
Kia ora and welcome,
My name is Rosie, and I am the inaugural Timaru Newcomers Network Coordinator.
Originally from Germany, I have lived for 15 years in France and for 7 years in Switzerland. Five years ago my husband and I arrived in New Zealand, the country I had always dreamed of.
As I have been more than once a migrant, I am very sensitive to what problems migrants may encounter.
That is why I am really glad that through my role I am having the opportunity to now assist Newcomers to settle in this region, helping them to make friends, having fun together and to gradually help them feel they are valued members of our community.
Join us; we would love to meet you!
Please email me so that I can let you know where and when our next gathering will be or you may even like to suggest an activity.
