Funding support for school holiday programmes.
The Fijian team at Fijituwawa demonstrate weaving to the kids on the programme.
The Auckland Children's Development Trust is one of 19 school holiday programme providers in Auckland city that has received funding from Auckland City Council's school holiday programme fund.
The trust received a grant of $6,000 towards a multi-cultural education project which aims to promote, understand and strengthen relationships between different cultures in children. The group will invite cultural groups based in Auckland to demonstrate aspects of their culture through arts, sports, song and cookery.
Groups participating will be from the Chinese, Fijian, Samoan, Indian and Cook Island communities. The project will also incorporate a visit to a marae and the children will participate in the Artstation Matariki project.
Auckland City Council recognises that access to school holiday programmes is very important to parents and caregivers, children and the community. School holiday programmes provide an important means of responding to, and providing for, the well-being of the children who make up a significant proportion of the city's population.
Safe, constructive care of children in school holidays is in the interests of the community at large, encouraging children to become part of their community and helping them to learn how to use their recreation and leisure time.Our thanks to Auckland City Council for providing this article.
