Edward Parkes

Edward (Ngāi Tahu) is an Engagement Assocaite based in Ōtautahi Christchurch. Having lived there his whole life he has a passion for seeing the young people in his community develop and grow whether it be at school, sport or through programmes like Student360.

He enjoys relating to our Student360 students and engaging with them and telling the story of our programmes through social media. He understands how meaningful it is working on Student360 and getting to contribute to the growing skills young Kiwis are able to access as they go from school and into tertiary educaiton or the workforce. Upskilling as many people in our communities as possible has no bad side in his eyes, and can only help better our communities.
