Wellington Zoo Tūhono

To celebrate global care day VOYCE Poneke created a Poneke Zoo scavenger hunt and it went down a treat! The weather was amazing and the young people were smiling!

Overall, we had a little over 20 young people join the fun. For the initial scavenger hunt we had groups of 5-6. The young people picked their groups and made their own team names such as “the winners” “big bear” and “5 deadly sins” and off they went to find answers to the clues they were given.

Some activities included…

  • Saying the longest Te Reo Māori word
  • Identifying all the animals that belong to Australia
  • Tik Tok dances
  • Annnnnnd FOOOOD

This tūhono brought together siblings from near and far, strangers who left as friends and very tired kaimahi! Prizes that were kindly donated from the local site office were given to all our participants.

We want to thank our beautiful care community for showing up and giving it a go! To BGI wellington for helping feed us rangatahi and to the amazing caregivers who were side-line cheerleaders to their kids. Also to our very own national youth council member that showed up to support the event.

This tūhono was a great way to recognise the amazing relationships our kaiwhakamana have made in our region that despite COVID19 almost stopping the event.
