A public service newsletter is set to shine the spotlight on government employees doing great work across the entire Cook Islands.

 

The quarterly newsletter was launched yesterday at the office of the prime minister and the first issue has been distributed today as an insert in the Cook Islands News.

Public Service chief executive Daphne Ringi, says the publication will provide the public with information on policies, programmes and projects that are currently happening across government.

It will also give readers interesting insights into the different types of jobs and work that people do within the public service.

She says the newsletter showcases a lot of the great work that happens behind the scenes, from building roads, to providing health care, and teaching our children.

The name Te Kura Akararangi’ia reflects stories that are packed with mana, and translated in English as the “power, passion and pride” of our Public Service. Future editions will also incorporate Cook Islands Maori stories.

The newsletter has the full endorsement of the prime minister who said at the launch he was very impressed with the initiative.

He thanked the heads of ministries present and Public Service Commissioner Russel Thomas, and the Public Service Commission for coming up with the idea.

“We finally have a channel for our success stories about workers in the public service who would otherwise never be exposed to the spotlight of achievement that they deserve.”
