Former Northland College student is crowned Miss Five Crowns NZ Legacy Princess  

"I would like to thank Te Rūnanga-Ā-Iwi O Ngāpuhi for the funding I was recently given towards my entry in the Miss Five Crowns New Zealand pageant. At the coronation event held on October 27, I was honoured to be crowned the Miss Five Crowns New Zealand Legacy Princess for 2018-2019. This award recognises my commitment to the competition throughout the year, and the community and charity work I completed. My involvement in the pageant has allowed me to develop new skills associated with public engagement, charity work and self-confidence. I am looking forward to 2019 and the work involved as a title holder. After my exams I am planning a trip home to Kaikohe - I would love to visit my old school Northland College to share my experience in the pageant. I am very grateful for the support I have received from the Rūnanga! Ngā mihi," Patricia Clark.

Patricia and her mum, Leanne
