New Zealand Blue Light is a registered charity and community policing youth program that for over 30 years has run programs and activities for young people throughout New Zealand free from drugs, alcohol and violence. Blue Light works closely with the New Zealand Police to:
Reduce youth crime
Build community partnerships
Build young peoples self esteem
Enhance community safety
Build positive youth and police partnerships
Blue Light aims to reduce young people becoming an offender or victim of crime and to build better relations between the police, young people, their parents and the community.
Blue Light encourages safe and healthy socialisation for young people with all Blue Light events being alcohol, drug and violence free; in today’s society who else can guarantee this and that is why parents and the community totally trust and support Blue Light activities for their children.

Prior to the start of the school holidays student Petera Hallet was airlifted to Starship Hospital where he underwent emergency surgery for an abscess on his spine. As a result on this infection Petera is currently unable to walk and has no feeling from his chest down. He remained in Starship hospital for 4 weeks and began physiotherapy to strengthen him to be able to use a wheelchair.
At this time it is hopeful that he may regain the use of his legs though there is no timeframe for this as nerve damage has occurred to Peteras spine. His family has been accommodated in Starship hospital for the last month to support him on a daily basis.
He has now begun a 12 week course of antibiotic treatment as well as physiotherapy and rehabilitation. On the 23rd of October Petera was moved to the Auckland Spinal Rehabilitation unit.
Petera is in good spirits and has set himself a goal of playing rugby next season which is a very positive mindset to have at this moment.
A fundraiser called “Pedal for Petera “is being organised whereby supporters cycle around the bike track at Tongariro School over a 24 hour period. This will take place on the Friday the 14th of November beginning at 4 pm until Saturday the 15th of November at 4 p.m. We will be endeavouring to raise money to be able to support Petera and his family so as to coordinate the potential changes and requirements to accommodate his short, medium and long term future.
Any support you can offer is most appreciative and Petera and his whanau wish to thank you for any support you are able to give.
To Support Petera, donations can be made to the following account set up to help hiim and his Whanau, all donations are gratefully received.
