Sizzle and Swim tuuhono

To welcome in the new year with our care experience tamariki, rangatahi and whānau here in Waitaha (Canterbury) we hosted ‘Sizzle and Swim’ at Jellie Park in Christchurch.

From North Canterbury to Rolleston, SGH’s to foster whānu, we saw rangatahi from all corners of Ōtautahi come together for an afternoon of good yarns, swimming, barbequing, pool games and hydroslide fun. It was great to connect with our familiar faces as well and meeting some new whānau too.

Rangatahi had a blast playing in the pool with Kaiwhakamana and it was great to connect and kōrero with our caregivers.

Also a huge thanks to our rangatira for cooking up a yummy bbq! As we look to the new year ahead we hope to see more opportunities to connect with our community here in Canterbury!
