School holidays

Does your child love the outdoors? Does your child love learning and exploring native New Zealand animals, plants, and habitats? Does your child want to learn more about how to be a kaitiaki for our repo (wetlands)? Is your child aged 7-13? If yes, then Matuku Link’s holiday programme is the holiday programme for you!

Led by our experienced educator and our incredible volunteers, our holiday programme offers children the chance to learn all about New Zealand’s wetlands by exploring and interacting with the plants and animals in the area. Each day gives children the opportunity be creative with natural and found materials. We keep our days flexible to allow children to follow their interests and discover more about the parts of wetlands that they are excited about. Activities include but are not limited to: scavenger hunts, hut building, eel feeding, insect and minibeast hunting, bird watching, water testing, macroinvertebrate identifying, harakeke weaving, nature crafting, kawakawa tea tasting, seed collecting and planting, and general exploring. Each day will be different, with plenty of areas to explore and learn about!

Each holiday programme day runs from 9am – 3pm at Matuku Link.

Our April holiday programme will be on Monday 22nd, Tuesday 23rd, Wednesday 24th and Friday 26th April.
