The Outlook for Someday offers up free sustainability film-making workshops

Young people + film + sustainability =


The Outlook for Someday have launched this year's Someday Workshops and are gearing up for the Someday Challenge.

Someday Workshops are free one-day and two-day film-making workshops that takieplace throughout New Zealand from June to August. The workshops are open to young people from years 7 to 13 (age 11 to 18), as well as teachers and youth workers.

All workshop participants will make short films and screen them at the end of the day.

Each participant will also have an opportunity to develop their own story idea - one that is meaningful to them and which they could then turn into a film as an entry to the Someday Challenge.

Registration is free and last year over half of the winning films in the film challenge were made by young people who had been to Someday Workshops.

Plastic-Free July 2017 - What's on!

Say no to single-use plastic


It is concerning how much plastic is ending up in landfill and polluting our oceans. In support of Plastic-Free July, School Aid is promoting a resuable shopping bag fundraiser throughout the month of July. Help the environment and raise funds! Click here

Another option to raise awareness is to join in the Plastic Free July Challenge by avoiding single-use plastic throughout July. Joining the challenge is easy and you'll be raising awareness with over a million people world-wide from 130 countries to make a difference!


May is 2017 International School Grounds Month

Throughout the month of May, schools are encouraged to take students outside of the classroom to celebrate their grounds, by engaging in learning, play and other activities. It’s as simple as that. School grounds are very important to children and youth, and shape their experience of the world around them. If you agree, we hope you will take some time during this month—an hour, a day, even a week—to go outside into your grounds with your students.
The 2017 International School Grounds Month Activity Guide is designed to help students use their school grounds to the fullest during the month of May, and year-round. This publication contains 26 new activities and ideas from around the world and includes 76 activities designed to engage students with their school grounds

Interested schools are encouraged to register for International School Grounds Month here

The 2017 Hiwi the Kiwi Show - coming to your school!

With New Zealand being a country where you are never far from the sea, the New Zealand Sport Fishing Council are aiming to educate children from an early age on how to best enjoy, manage, protect and preserve our marine environment.

Hiwi the Kiwi has now appeared at over 1100 schools across New Zealand. The show uses the interaction of music and performance to teach children about sustainability of kai moana and the effect of plastic in our ocean on sea life.
