Activity Group

Activity Group restarted Friday 9 February.
It runs the 2nd & 4th Friday of each month, 1-3pm 

Fun and fellowship.  Afternoon tea provided.
Lots of activities provided but you may have your own favourites - knitting, sewing, woodwork, chess??? 
Jigsaws, cards, puzzles, games and much more.  Indoor bowls and table tennis if any one is brave!
And best of all - one another's company.  Maybe bring along someone you know who is lonely?
Looking forward to your company. 

Where:  Trinity-at-Waiake   864 Beach Road, Waiake.

Perceptual motor Programme (PMP) - Outreach

Perceptual motor Programme (PMP)

Glamorgan have contacted me asking if we would be able to assist with PMP. It is a big ask as our volunteers are already committed to hearing children read.
The programme consists of activities that require children to use their brain and body together to accomplish tasks.
It is a movement-based programme that concentrates on the development of perception and language through a series of planned activities - for example, walking on a balance beam while reciting the alphabet.
The programme runs from week 6(March 5th) to the end of term one, Monday – Thursday mornings, from 9.00-10.40. There are 2 sessions 9-9:50 and 9:50-10:40 so if need be we could split each morning, but would need to make the commitment to the time and day. For examples of activities, look at this link for the Perceptual motor programme.  If you are interested in helping, please contact Christine Baker.  via

Caring for our Children - Outreach

Caring for our Children
For over ten years our Reading Circle volunteers have helped children, at Glamorgan School with their reading. This regular help is so worthwhile. Because of our one to one encouragement, the children we work with begin to become confident readers. 
If you would like to join our group of volunteers, please contact Christine Baker.    via
