Additional lessons can be added from the enrolments page.

5. FREE Counselling for Young People
There are a number of places you can get FREE Counselling for young people, such as 298 Youth Health in the city, and St John of God Hauora Trust on Pages Road who counsel 10 – 25 year olds on issues such as anxiety, depression, alcohol, drugs and eating disorders. Also Mike King’s Gumboot Friday Funding is available temporarily for counselling, and we can recommend some great local counsellors, including some of our own, you could use that funding for. GPs can also make referrals. Spread the word and lets get our young people help when they need it…

6. Clubs – spaces available Wednesday afternoons
All clubs are running well with good numbers. There are spaces in our School Years 3 – 6 Basketball Coaching sessions on Wednesday afternoons from 3:30 – 4:30pm, and also our Girls only Craft Club on Wednesdays from 3:30pm – 5pm for School Years 5 – 8. If you want to give either club a try before the end of term end – just turn up, or sign up online (if club numbers become too low, we may have to scrap them). New dance & singing club, RISE, has no spaces for this term, but spaces will be opening at the beginning of Term 3 for anyone in Years 5 – 8 who may want to join.
