Monday: Be active - kia mātātoa
Get active for wellness, and have a go at some of the friendly but physical activities and challenges by yourself or in a group. Prizes like mcdonald's, warehouse, and cinema vouchers are up for grabs! We'll also have kai for ākonga who join in (sausage sizzle). Meet us outside Te Piere.
Tuesday: Get creative - kia auaha
Create art with messages of aroha, kindness, affirmations, resilience, connections, coping, self-care, and more, for you or someone else by joining painting stations. We'll also have kai for ākonga who join in (pizza). Meet us inside Te Kāuta Cafe on the mezaanine.
Wednesday: Dance for Wellbeing - mā te kanikani ka ora
Dance for your wellbeing with our Zumba instructors Ngāpei and Ting, who are encouraging kaimahi (staff) and ākonga to dance their hearts. We'll have kai for ākonga who join in (fruit and muesli bars). Meet us inside Te Kāuta Cafe on the mezaanine.
Thursday: Fun and Games - kia pārekareka
Come and have a go at some giant outdoor games, like kubb, golf ladder, tic tac toe, giant jenga, and more with other ākonga and kaimahi. Grab a soft serve icecream from Tinkle Bell van. Prizes like mcDonald's, warehouse, and cinema vouchers are up for grabs for ākonga and kaimahi who participate. Meet us outside Te Piere.
We want our ākonga and kaimahi to show us how they personally define wellbeing, what brings you happiness, and comfort, or helps you maintain a peaceful state of mind. So we are running a wellbeing photo challenge: what does wellbeing mean to you?
How to enter?
Take a photo of what wellbeing means to you, and send it to email@example.com including a caption, your name, mobile number, and email address. We will select three photos and those ākonga or kaimahi will win!
