KYC Camp

17th Dec 2019

Kaikoura Youth Council finished up the year with a camp in Clarence!

We wound Kaikōura Youth Council up this year with a camp at Clarence - we went hunting, swimming, rafting, played Settlers of Catan, talked to a NCTIR engineer about the road construction, and just generally chilled out after a busy year. A massive thanks to all our youth council members - you've put in a huge year! Not everyone could make it on camp and some of you have come and gone a bit, but we value every one of you and appreciate your input into making Kaikōura a place where youth are optimistic, confident and make valued contributions.

Under water videoing

10th Dec 2019

Exploring South Bay marine environment in a totally new way...

What a great weekend we had at the Underwater Videography workshop. An awesome group of 15 rangatahi joined us to explore the underwater world at South Bay, learning film and camera techniques for both story telling and data collection, as well as a plethora of marine science info.
A massive thanks to Sharyn Goldstien from KnowledgeAble Communities who masterminded the weekend, and to Steve Jensen for technical and back up support. As well, thanks to Adele More, our local underwater documentary expert and to Dan Crossett and Robyn Dunmore from Cawthron Institute who brought cameras and expertise of a marine research nature! And finally a huge thank you to Takahanga Marae for hosting us and all the yummy food!

Defensive driving courses...

17th Oct 2019

Mike from AA has been back at it again - taking on a local group to put through a defensive driving course. Completeing your defensive driving course eqiups you with skills to handle yourself safely on the road in all sorts of situations - and it takes 6 months wait time off your restrictive license to get you onto your full licence sooner. Well worth signing up for :)
