Rafting The Mighty Waiau Toa!

27th Oct 2023

A group of 7 young people took up the challenge of rafting the mightly Waiau Toa/Clarence River recently - supported by 2 of our staff and 3 raft guides from Clarence River Rafting. 

Highlights of the trip included the helicopter trip into the valley, a 3 hour water fight on the river, learning about the river, the changes that happened in the 2016 earthquake, different rock types, te reo names and what they mean, the amazing kai and the group bonding and relationship building.

We stayed in tents, learnt how to build and use a long drop, cooked over campfires and somehow survived without phones and internet for 3 whole days!! It was an amazing experience, along with the challenge of a wild nor-west wind adding to the adventure!

We are incredibly grateful to Clarence River Rafting for their care, experience and manaakitanga, and to Sport Tasman's Tu Manawa fund for helping make this opportunity possible.


Rata Foundation support for Te Hā o Mātauranga

15th Sep 2023

One of our funders, Rata Foundation, have put together this story and video about Te Hā o Mātauranga. They actually filmed this in 2021, however the pulling together of the video was pushed back with other things happening in the world at the time.

Rata support us by contributing to the operational costs of Te Hā - you can't have people working without having the background bits for them! Rata's support goes towards the costs of our hub (rent, power, phone, insurance etc), and the costs of employing a Coordinator to look after the other staff. We are deeply grateful to Rata for their ongoing support!

SHIFT and Th'Orchard

5th Mar 2023

Wow, what an awesome group of rangatahi who came to Chch yesterday on our arts trip. Super loved this chill, fun, polite, group of young people, who made the absolute most of their experience.

Shift - the Canterbury Museum's Urban Art Takeover was aaamaazing! So worth a visit - it kept us all engaged and exclaiming for nearly 2 hours. Th'Orchard performance was inspiring and a lovely way to end the day - super cool to hear the chill vibes of these young creatives. We are thinking about how to bring you to Kaikōura now!

Huge thanks to Kiri Jarden and Th'Orchard for hosting us and making the day even more special - you guys rock! Thanks to the Ministry of Youth Development - New Zealand for making trips like this possible.

We managed to squeeze in lots of extras - gelato, opera, buskers, it was a full on day with the best company. Mark, our new youth worker at Te Hā, and Keepa even managed to fit in a game of chess!
