Hey Team!

Times have been a bit crazy lately and life might be a bit different for a while – but we’ve started ‘Tamariki Talks’ to bring some Kiwi Can fun to you all!

Due to the recent Covid19 crisis – the way we deliver our programmes has changed. We want to continue teaching important lessons to young Kiwis across Aotearoa – SO here on Tamariki Talks we’re bringing Kiwi Can to you!

With a range of fun and engaging lessons, challenges and activities delivered by our amazing Kiwi Can Leaders, we’ve got your lockdown boredom covered.

What is Kiwi Can?

Kiwi Can is a values and life skills programme designed for primary and intermediate school students (5–12 year olds). Kiwi Can reaches Tamariki around the country, delivering a range of awesome physical, mental and creative challenges – plus high-energy,fun, safe and interactive lessons that reinforce the schools’ goals and curriculum


Each week we’ll be uploading new sessions with our awesome Kiwi Can leaders. We’ll explore new values, themes and topics that we can use at home and throughout life. Our videos are split up into age groups, but are all suitable for the whole family. So get ready and have fun with our Kiwi Can team – because if anyone can a Kiwi Can!
