The party themed; Tropical Summer had everyone dressed in their brightest summer colours to celebrate the ‘island’ Christmas way.
It was a time for staff to celebrate their wins and acknowledge areas that need improvement for the coming year.
A team that has been through many challenges this year with the devastation of Tropical Cyclone Gita, it was an emotional moment for all as they remembered the events of the night.
For twelve staff members it was seeing first-hand the affect TC Gita had on the office while they were inside the building.
Several staff lost their homes.
The programme for the evening included Secret Santa (exchange of gifts between staff) and a raffle ticket draw, a fundraising activity to contribute to the team’s community work.
The Christmas party was organized by the team’s Social Club, One Tonga Kiai which was formed in September and whose priority is fostering staff relationships to improve team dynamics and encourage collaboration as one of our key values.
