Children’s Voice 

Children’s voices are a strong AvON objective, we have ensured that children and youth have been involved in workshops, feedback sessions and consultation.  We run a hands on kaitiaki program with 3 schools, Banks Ave, Whitau and CHCH East where they kaitiaki Red Zone Spaces to develop their own playground designs and we regularly arrange planting and mulching bees with schools in and around the OARC.
