Whakapau kaha – to be better than before.

Holiday programme throughout December and January for children aged 5-13, with locations in Epsom, Mt Eden, and Parnell.

Drowning Prevention Auckland has just released a series of water safety programmes for the September school holidays that will run at pools around Auckland. We would be grateful if you could share this information with your school community. In the email are the posters with the relevant programme details and links to register.

The Splash Holiday programme is a fun and safe opportunity for children aged 8-15 to improve their water safety competence and knowledge, while enhancing their swimming ability. Places are limited to 25 per day and cost $30 per child.

Splash is now in its 10th year, and our experienced instructors provide a friendly and inclusive environment where confidence is built, and kids are encouraged to give new aquatic activities a go!

Activities include lifejacket safety, snorkelling, bystander rescue, beach safety with safer boating and Manu safety (bombing) on offer for the older age group sessions.

Further information and registration is available on our website. Parents will need to enrol their children in the correct session based on age group (8-10, 11-15) and select the location and date that suits.

Jazz School, school holiday Big Band workshop

This will be an exciting three day school holiday workshop where year 6, 7 and 8 students will learn to play in a Jazz Big Band and then perform a concert for family and friends on the final afternoon. The Big Band is for Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone and Clarinet players plus Electric Guitar, Piano, Bass and Drums. The music we play will range from jazz standards to modern pop classics with an emphasis on having fun while producing music at a high standard. This workshop will be run by Drew Hutchinson. Students must be playing at grade 2 level or higher, or have had two years of lessons. The workshop is on October 4, 5 and 6 from 9am – 3pm at Remuera Primary School, 25 Dromorne Road, Remuera.

To register for the workshop please visit or email for more information.

Feedback from previous workshops:

“I cannot tell how much we enjoyed your workshop on so many levels; watching our child’s confidence grow, making new friends, the location and of course the music was fantastic”.
