Inviting all 8-13 year olds - and older!
The Wairarapa KidzConference is open to any school and any family with 8-13 year olds. It's supported by approx 30 community groups and businesses who open their doors for the day - for the kids to experience something new... For 2020, we'll be including volunteer service experiences with local and international opportunities.
There'll be new KidzClubz they can all join; awesome scope to 'make some money' and scope to join our i-Matter programme... Older students are welcome to join us as presenters, chaperones or leaders. A special invite goes to Y9-11 students who've been a 'KidzConference' kid in any previous conference - especially the 2016-2018 conferences.
The latest KidzConference, saw students take part in three hands-on workshops, chosen from 26 available. They connected, collaborated, created and contributed within their community and beyond. 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.
Over the past four years, more than 240 students have been sponsored by businesses, to attend the KidzConferences. Businesses have sponsored tickets, spot prizes, through to buses (e.g. from Carterton and Eketahuna) and everything from refreshments for presenters, to cricket sets, room hire, marketing and voluntary 'chaperone' support.
