Seniors also have the usual games, sports and baking as well as trips to Inflatable World, Ice Skating and a special trip to Hanmer Springs on the final day!!!

CLICK HERE to view Years 5 – 9 Programmes

Change of Policy: In order to be fair to those who need childcare for the whole week, we won’t be confirming any single day bookings until Friday 11th September. This is in response to some people just booking the special outing days, and others missing out on the full week of childcare they need, and only able to attend on ‘in’ days. We value the relationships and trust we’re able to build over the week, and place greater priority on leader/young people connections, than just entertainment.

#FULL# Babysitting Course


**The September Babysitting Course is now FULL!!!!! Please email: parenting@yat.org.nz if you’d like to be on the waiting list or to hear about the next course.**

Whether you’re already babysitting the neighbours kids or your younger siblings or want some credibility when looking for a babysitting job – this day is for you! Course covers expectations of a babysitter, the child and family, safety, play and basic first aid by a trained Plunket facilitator. Costs $30. Hosted by Youth Alive Trust in New Brighton. More info on the event link below.


New Van!!!

We are thrilled to have finally fundraised enough to buy a van to replace the old Transit (known by some staff as the Tragic). Thanks to donations from Rotary Club of Christchurch Sunrise, 20 Friends of YAT who gave specifically to this cause and the sale of the van, we got a deal from local traders Hopman Motors on a 2014, 12 seater Toyota Hiace with just 100,000k’s, and a caged boot. It’s been signwritten by Steve from AFIX GRAPHICS and now just needs a name! (suggestions in the comments below) All 3 of our vans are used extensively for our after school clubs, holiday programmes, events, mentoring, camps and training, and we don’t expect to fundraise towards replacements for at least another 10 years! Thank you to all who made this possible!!

Itty Bitty Beats Concert – POSTPONED

SADLY, due to Level 2 conditions of no more than 100 people at a social event (we were expecting a crowd) we are POSTPONING our Itty Bitty Beats Live At Beach Tots Playgroup concert this Thursday, at least for a couple of weeks until we return to Level 1. Keep an eye on the Youth Alive Trust and Itty Bitty Beats social media pages for the new concert date. You’ve now got a bit more time to learn the songs on Spotify or YouTube. All other clubs will continue as normal as they do not break Level 2 restrictions. If you are feeling ill, please stay away. We will be using the same safety measures we used last time during Level 2. If you have any pastoral care needs, please get in touch at: care@yat.org.nz
