CHANGES TO NOTE FOR HOLIDAY PROGRAMME Please note there have been a few changes to School Holiday Programme from past programmes Ngati Toa Domain We no longer operate out of the Ngati Toa Domian Hall for the School Holiday Programme or as our Porirua office space. We are in the process of relocating the office to Porirua City. When confirmed, details will be posted on our website. Options will also be available for getting WINZ forms signed off etc in Porirua. Please check our website for details over the next couple of weeks. If at all possible you should register online.

Change of HP Coordinator We farewell Fiona McCaskill from the role of Porirua HP Coordinator. Fiona is moving from our OSCAR team to our Youth Education team and has been a great servant of the Holiday Programmes since Porirua City Council days. Replacing Fiona in Porirua & Wellington is Kayla Tattley who also runs our YMCA After School Care Centres throughout the region. Kayla’s details can be found on the inside cover of this booklet.
