The Greatest Game of Tag

Its been a big week in the inaugrual "Greatest Game of Tag".  It all started Sunday 5 March in Kaikoura, in style and stunning conditions.  We're over half way now and what a week it's been. An amazing journey, visiting Playcentres, meeting people, sharing, cheering, running, walking, biking or whatever it takes to make it to the next centre and tag.  Read all about it here and see the beautiful korowai Jacqui made which is making the journey with us spreading aroha as we go.  And don't forget to add Saturday 18 March, 12.30, Akaroa in your diary - this is where the celebration happens for the completion of the Greatest Game of Tag. It'll be a blast - best be there!!

Message from the MOE

Message from the Ministry of Education:

Our office in Riccarton is shifting to town towards the end of April -  if Playcentres have any changes to their days, hours of operating etc changing for next term could they get them into us prior to the school holidays. This is in case we have a few hiccups in the new building with technology.
