October 2022 School Holiday Fun

We're gearing up for a super popular school holiday programme with lots of events and activities to keep our tamariki engaged and having fun!

We're also running The Great Te Aka Mauri Spring Reading Challenge where you can win prizes just for reading! Open to young people aged 0 to 18 years, all you have to do is track your reading progress on the map of Lake Rotorua and cross your time off as you go. Find out everything you need to know here
