This past Saturday we held a Whanau Day at our Masterton centre. Over the past couple of months, we have given the centre a small refurb with new entrance signage, a hire space spruce up and developed our new programme ‘Kia Kaha Ake’.

Saturday was focused around the idea of families with under 5’s coming to the centre, seeing what’s on offer and giving it a go!

Throughout the day we had over 300 people through the doors all making use of the exploratory equipment, meeting new and old friends alike as well as enjoying a bouncy castle and sausage sizzle. Sport Wairarapa ran a Fun with Food & Nutrition workshop which was a huge success. Raise Up Crew Masterton also ran some awesome sports games. Sparkly Faces Face Painting was also on hand to offer face painting to all attendees!

This was a great ending to 2018.  Kia Kaha Ake will be running through the January holidays Tuesday – Thursday 10.30 – 12.30 at $2 per child with all new term timetable to come.

Dates for January are:

8.01.19 /10.01.19

15.01.19 /17.01.19

22.01.19 /24.01.19
