The Regional St John Competition was held last Saturday at Camp Morley in Clarks Beach. Pukekohe and Waiuku youth divisions competed against 14 other teams and came away with some outstanding results.

After both teams were placed in the Counties District competitions, Pukekohe were named Regional Champions, and Waiuku went on to claim a close second overall.
St John youth competitions are an opportunity for cadets to test their skills and knowledge over a range of scenarios including communication, caregivers, medical, trauma and drill. Waiuku Divisional Manager, Cheryl Thomas, says that she is very proud of her division.
“They worked really hard but had a lot of fun as well. As a result their placings were first in communication, second in resuscitation, second in caregivers and second in aggregate overall.
It is an amazing accomplishment for this team to get second overall out of the entire region. We are all very proud of them.”
Both the Waiuku and Pukekohe youth division would like to thank everyone who has supported them over the years.
“Without the many years of support we wouldn’t be the strong amazing divisions that we are today,” says Cheryl.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
