Teach First NZ was invited to present the Good Business Egg Awards in the education category, at a special presentation hosted at the KPMG Centre in Auckland last night.

The awards are run by Business and Community Shares (BACS), which has a growing membership of businesses and community organisations that share information, skills and wisdom.

Over the past year, seventy-nine businesses and organisations had been put through their paces on their commitment to the community without their knowledge, as surveys and questionnaires were collected as well as a judging panel for each category.

Business and community leaders attended the ceremony where community leaders presented three business organisations a Good Business Egg Award of New Zealand.
Shaun Sutton, Chief Executive of Teach First NZ presented the award for education to the Department of Conservation (DOC) for their outstanding work in educating New Zealanders through the environment.

The Hon. Jo Goodhew, Minister of the Community and Voluntary Sector, also spoke at the event in support of business commitment to New Zealand communities.

BACS founder Julie Donvin-Irons, of the Stanley East Company explained  “Many New Zealand businesses invest in the community and the Good Business Eggs of New Zealand Awards are significant. Business gets some acknowledgment for what they do and the value lies in what the community truly thinks of them”.

Teach First NZ was also highlighted in this week's Sunday Star Times 'About Town' section. View the feature here.
