Following the AGM there was an awards ceremony where the NZK Presidents Award was presented to Nelson Tasman RFKA for their initiative Tamariki Hauora - a partnership with the Nelson Marlborough DHB to provide an ECE service within the hospital and the NZK Cultural Award was presented to Northland Kindergarten Association in recognition of the associations' strong sense of belonging, reinforced by the entire teaching staff and management team embracing Haka Pƍwhiri.
