We want everyone to stay safe, especially our tamariki. Now that we are in Alert Level 2, Children's Day / Te rā o ngā Tamariki has been postponed. We are looking forward to hosting the event at a later date and will provide an update of the rescheduled date as soon as possible.
It promises to be a day full of fun, laughter and creativity in Porirua as we celebrate Te rā o ngā Tamariki / Children's Day.
The day is all about supporting and nurturing our tamariki, honouring their mana and putting them first. What better way to celebrate Children’s Day than with a free event at Aotea Lagoon, packed to the brim with fun?
Children’s Day is all about our tamariki, and we want them to rule the roost by taking over our Facebook page and creating their own stories, video and photographs. Would your tamariki make a great social media influencer for the day? Email firstname.lastname@example.org to be part of the Kids Crew. (spaces limited)
