Kia ora Phillipstown!
We hope you enjoyed the Summer break. We had an amazing time with family and friends, but now the holidays are gone and we are back again, up and running.
Most of our groups has already back with started their activities.The year opened with our amazing School Holiday Programme: there were 19 kids playing cricket and other games around the Hub grounds, having fun on the beach, jumping on bounce castles, biking at Spencer Park and waterpistol shootouts. Now we are delighting in the silence and calm at the Hub until 3pm when the children are dropped off by the school van for the afternoon OSCAR programme.
Please, note that we still have some spaces in our After School Programme for students from Te Waka Unua School and from Christchurch East School.Please, note that we still have some spaces in our After School Programme for students from Te Waka Unua School and from Christchurch East School.The artists from Ōtautahi Creative Spaces (Room 5) are back and have started spreading their creativity around together with the dedicated potters from Room 7. The amazing singers from The Muse (Room 6) cheer up our days and nights while the working bees from the Community Garden and the Refugees make our flowerbeds thrive, while the ICEcycles (Room 8) folk fix bikes for the community.
