"giving KIDS FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE a new perspective of their world"
Child Flight Charitable Trust was established in 2012 to provide support and opportunity for disadvantaged kids.
Our mission has expanded as Child Flight seeks to provide support for kids from all walks of life. As well as using flight as the medium for new spatial experiences we now offer, at no cost, a well-being programme called Curious Minds-Possible Worlds which is being taught in schools and community organisations in Kaitaia, Whangarei and Hamilton. The programme is presented by Professor Kathryn Pavlovich who has 20 years experience in research and development in this field. Our long-term goal is to introduce the course to as many schools as we can throughout New Zealand and we invite any organisation interested in the well-being of young students to join us
Flight Seats to date: 742 seats
Curious Minds-Possible Worlds Classes: 9 classes
Number of Students in CM Programme: 520 students
Our Whangarei Class of 2019 initiated a project to plant 51 trees in a public park in the city environs as a permanent remembrance of the 51 who died in the Christchurch massacre. This will happen on the 29th June 2019.
The next Curious Minds-Possible Worlds programme will be held in the Te Ahu Theatre the week beginning 24th June 2019 offered to 120 students
