Wildflower planting

13th Sep 2018

Kaikōura Youth Council planted wildflower seeds outside Te Hā yesterday with seeds donated by Apiculture New Zealand. This was a nice mix of celebrating Bee Awareness month, the Love the Lyell Clean up day and Keep NZ Beautiful clean up week. 

Kaikōura District Council staff Kate, Bridget and Tracy brought the seeds down and enjoyed watching Jade and Ashley plant the seeds that should make a wonderful summer display and hopefully attract bees!


Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori

13th Sep 2018

For Te wiki o Te Reo Māori the Youth Council organised to go into the High School with colourful balloons and were asking the students to tell them all 6 colours in Te Reo. Those who successfully said all the colours were given a chocolate bar. It was great to see everyone including teachers giving this a go, and for those who weren't too sure there was always someone there willing to help them through. Te wiki o Te Reo Māori has been a great success for 2018.

Youth Week 2018

21st May 2018

'Be who you want to be'. The Youth Council were very busy throughout Youth Week and had many activities planned for the students at the High School. On Monday a handprint mural was created, this is to represent all the students coming together and committing to be their best selves and supporting and encouraging their peers to be there best selves also. On Tuesday it was a mirror day. Mirrors were taken around the High School and students were asked to look at their reflection and write something positive about themselves.  On Thursday, we were fortunate enough to have the 2 new police in town come into the High School and battle the students in games of giant jenga and connect 4. This saw great competition and involvement by all. It was an awesome chance for the students and the Police to connect in a fun and casual setting. The fun, laughter, and competition continued throughout the whole of lunch. 

During the week it was great to see so many students getting involved in different ways with all the activities that had been organised.
