Kiwi kids celebrate in the South Auckland Community

Kiwi kids celebrate in the South Auckland Community

Two months of practice will be rewarded as South Auckland children take the stage in the Kiwi Can Jam. Primary school students from across South Auckland have been practicing their community spirit through dance, music and performance.

Kiwi Can Jam brings together the South Auckland community to encourage kids to have the confidence to perform on stage. This year’s theme for Kiwi Can Jam is Respect – respect for others, for yourself and for your community. Each Kiwi Can school has to prepare an item; five minutes long around the theme and then perform it on stage. It is a heart-warming experience, with the children of South Auckland showing off their Kiwi CAN DO attitude.

Kiwi Can Jam is part of the Foundation of Youth Development’s (FYD) Kiwi Can programme and involves 400 children from the 11 primary and intermediate schools. Kiwi Can is a life skills and values programme delivered to the whole school. Children attend a Kiwi Can lesson once a week, every week of the school year. The programme promotes a can-do attitude and encourages children to take responsibility for their actions.

Kiwi Can Jam this year is being held:

Venue: Manurewa Intermediate
Date: Friday 30th November
Time: 6pm start to 9pm

Foundation for Youth Development (FYD) is a child and youth charity founded by Graeme Dingle and Jo-anne Wilkinson and is a leader in the field of youth development in New Zealand.

FYD provides young people with the opportunity to build self-confidence and learn valuable life skills by participating in unique development programmes from the time they start primary school through to the end of high school.

Through FYD’s current programmes – Kiwi Can, Stars, Project K and MYND – they help 18,000 young people each year to be confident, healthy individuals who contribute positively to society. www.fyd.org.nz
