Inspiring Kiwi
Lloyd Martin is a trained teacher and was working in the Porirua community 25 years ago when he saw a need to help young people struggling in schools. So he set up Porirua Alternative School which has since then helped hundreds of kids, gain more confidence and an education.   Lloyd has worked tirelessly to get the school NZQA accredited and is certain there will always be a need to help out kids who can't cope in mainstream schools for whatever reason.
