This time last year, we visited Pukekohe North School who were in their first term of Kiwi Can. One year on, we’ve returned to see what impact Kiwi Can has had on the school and the results we saw were amazing. A number of sponsors came along to visit a Kiwi Can class at Pukekohe North School and also heard Principal Jim Stafford-Bush speak to the changes that Kiwi Can has helped make in his school.
Jim says “It’s easily said there’s a calmness about the school now and really Kiwi Can has helped us with the values that they push which align perfectly with what we’ve got at Pukekohe North and the kids have risen to the challenge. It’s been so awesome seeing the sponsors today because these people can actually come in and see how their support of Kiwi can has really made a difference. To see the classroom they did today that last year was one of our worst classrooms just enjoy being at school, being with one another and being involved in Kiwi Can that’s fantastic.”
The visit was a great opportunity for sponsors to see what a Kiwi Can class looks like and how the students are engaged throughout. With a mixture of indoor and outdoor activities, our Kiwi Can Leaders do a fantastic job at keeping their students engaged whilst still teaching them the values and skills they need for a better future.
We’d like to thank all the sponsors who make Kiwi Can in Pukekohe North School possible. We’re looking forward to seeing the progress over the next year.
