Visit this space to see how these roll!
...presents this 2021 highlight as a Kidz4Kidz event -
led by students at Eketahuna School, & Solway Primary, Masterton. Our 'architects', our hosts, leaders and influencing peers for Y4-8 students throughout the Wairarapa.
COVID? We're hoping all will be well.
But if Level 2 or more, we'll postpone.
SOWING THE SEEDS TO MAKE AN IMPACT
Kids welding? Kids as MCs? Kids as event managers?
Kids as Photo Journalists? Kids who have business cards?
Kids managing nearly $15k of event hungry finance? That's how it rolls with the Wairarapa KidzConference. The 'stuff' they learn enroute is huge! Here, they've got scope to seriously participate, contribute and make an impact - on themselves and for others. It's misty-eyed stuff.
"Can we see how a Hot Rod's built?" "Sure! Shall we see if you can get picked up in a Hot Rod - and taken to the workshop?" "Imagine an Underwater Hockey Club for kids?" "Awesome! Could we have Carterton vs Greytown Underwater Hockey Tournaments?" "Let's ask...!" Kids get to have a say, on behalf of other kids - be 'architects' of this event and pull off a day for up to 320-350 students...
Come and join the fun!
The Wairarapa KidzConference is open to schools and families with 8-13 year olds.
It's supported by approx 30 community groups and businesses who open their doors for the day - so kids can experience something new...
There'll be new KidzClubz they can all join; awesome scope to 'make some money' and more.
Registered 'FreshAz Education Ltd' NZ Teachers and local business experts enable all that evolves. 30-40 volunteers 'chaperone' and logistically manage the event, connecting students to the community, to each other and to future focused opportunities.
The 2021 KidzConference offers a wide range of workshop options for students.
They'll identify 6 of them and we'll select 3 of these to do on the day - availability of spaces dependent.
If you're keen to expose what you do - that kids could do, be a 'Workshop Presenter' for them!
We're looking to cover as many bases as possible, from agriculture, to engineering, design, micro-enterprise, culinary arts, budgeting etc.
All endeavors to see kids adopt new interests, explore existing ones deeper and support local business growth - 'KidzClubz' new Squads or Junior reps etc.
