First Classes & James Street School

On the 16th August classes began for Curious Minds at Fairfield Intermediate in Hamilton.  Our first classes in a Hamilton School.  This programme is being supported by Harcourts Hamilton and Ebbett Volkswagen.  We have 20 students in the class which were carefully selected by the school's deputy principal.

Today, 17th August we braved the weather conditions to fly our Piper Arrow to Whakatane to present a cheque to James Street School, a special needs school we have been connected with for 3 years now through the Z Energy Good in the Hood Programme.

Stage 3 Northland

Leticia Allan manages the Northland Z service stations under the name Stage 3 Northland.  For 3 years she has supported Child Flight in the Far North.  Together we have achieved flights for over 100 kids, special needs and disadvantaged, many have never flown before.  This has come about through Stage 3's involvement with Z Energy's Good in the Hood programme where the energy company donates $1 million dollars to social welfare projects in New Zealand's communities.

Foundation North

We are pleased to announce that Foundation North have given us sufficient sponsorship to go ahead with our plans to open up Curious Minds-Possible Worlds to as many as 200 kids in Kaitaia using the Te Ahu venue in town.  This is very exciting news as we are hoping to extend an invitation to as many as 10 schools in the Far North.  The programme will be the updated version of the course that has been introduced over the last two years in Kaitaia Intermediate school.
