Kia ora teachers and whānau!

As New Zealand is responding to prevent the spread of Covid-19 virus, we are compiling resources here  and in our "For our Parents" page to build and sustain the wellbeing of our children/mokopuna, their parents and whānau, teachers and other service providers

Kia mahara ki a koutou, take care everyone!

Worried about going back to school?

Mana Ake resources for children and young people

Mana Ake is a Christchurch organisation that has worked in all schools supporting mental health since the earthquake. RTLBs in Christchurch have shared the recently designed Mana Ake work booklets to support student and whānau at home with anxiety or worries about returning to school.  They are designed to be sent to families and worked through to come up with a plan for kids returning to school.   The message is - we know that this may be hard for you, let's talk through a plan and we are all here to help you put the plan into action.  Click here for Word docs to support
