When we started the Matuku Link school holiday program, we didn’t think it would be so successful so quickly: last week’s series was fully booked almost every day, with most of the children wanting to return the next day… because what’s not do love: making friends while building huts, feeding eels, going on a scavenger hunt for insects, matching colors in nature, harakeke flower weaving, finding leaf shapes, making kawakawa tea, getting muddy, wet and tired… we’re pretty certain the parents appreciated the latter 🙂

All of this coordinated and led by our amazing educators Leah and Rebecca, assisted by volunteers Josh, Rosemary and Dot this week. We’d love to run this program during all the weeks of the school holiday, however that would only work with a couple more volunteers to help out and make it fun. If this is something you’d like to know more about, or have some time to help with, please contact Leah on schools@matukulink.org.nz
