Youth Council

Kaikōura Youth Council are an awesome group of young people making a difference to the Kaikōura community. They have been active in Kaikōura for a number of years and meet regularly after school at Te Hā o Mātauranga - Learning in Kaikōura to work on youth issues, organise events and bring Kaikōura's youth together. 

Some regular events include youth blasts, games nights, Easter egg hunts at Easter time, movie nights and more! 

They also help Council engage with the youth of Kaikōura by facilitating a pathway of communication and representing youth in Council matters. Kaikōura Youth Council's mission statement is:

Kaikōura youth are optimistic, confident and make valued contributions.

Kaikōura Youth Council supporting Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori (September 2018)

Te wiki o Te Reo Māori week was 10-16 September 2018.  180913 te reo week 3

Kaikōura Youth Council organised a lunch time activity at Kaikōura High School, where they wandered around with colourful balloons asking students to tell them all 6 colours in te reo. Students and teachers all got involved and those who were able to say all the colours were given a chocolate bar. It was great to see everyone at the High School jumping on board and giving some te reo a go, and for those who weren't too sure there was always someone there willing to help them through.

Te wiki o Te Reo Māori has been a great success for 2018 in Kaikōura!
