Gull Sponsorship

We would like to thank Gull New Zealand for their $1,000 Sponsorship Funding.

This will be used for Dance Sessions at 'I Dance Studios' beginning early July 2021. 

We will also add to our Multi-Sensory area with sensory lighting, bright coloured bean bags for physical interaction, body awareness, social skills, communication and self confidence.

We can not underestimate the difference an opportunity like this can make in the lives of the people we support.

Te Puke Centre Highlights & Outings

Sensory Room

The highlight of our year so far is the renovation of our Sensory Room. 

We have all worked really hard and with a lot of great ideas and planning, we created our own Sensory/Quiet Room which we all absolutely love.

Freaky Friday Disco

We decided to have a "Freaky Friday"  Disco. We all dressed up, even the staff!!! 

We played our favourite songs, had laser lights and flashing lights and boogied the afternoon away. What a neat day!!

Pilot Bay Walk

Aren't we so lucky that we live in this beautiful city! 
Here we are going for a walk along the beautiful boardwalk at Pilot Bay ... what a view!

Greerton Centre Summer Camp - March 2021

On Monday 15th March Duncan, Roger, Carise, Fiona, Sherie and Susin packed an overnight bag and ventured to Rotorua to stay at the All Seasons Camp. 

Before settling into camp we took a leisurely stroll through the Redwoods Forest, amongst the giant trees. 

When we arrived at the camp we were greeted by Dinosaurs both herbivore and carnivore. 

We chose our beds, then went for a well deserved swim and spa. After indulging in steak and chicken burgers we retired to bed. 

After breakfast the next day we made our way to Kuirau Park to soak our feet in the natural hot spring, then off to Oppies Fish and Chips to enjoy lunch and make our way back to Tauranga. 

Am awesome Camping trip away!

 Over the last few years  Arohanui Greerton have entered the local yarn bombing competition where they decorate a local tree.

This year they went all out and created Wilson the rugby player. Wilson attracted a lot of attention, so much in fact that someone decided they would steal him for their own.

This was very disappointing for everyone and even with local papers getting involved Wilson was never to be seen again. But as they say, with every dark cloud there is a silver lining and with the locals getting behind Arohanui we won the public vote and $700 which was kindly sponsored by Leigh Crockord of Crockford real estate.

The money was spent on the purchase of new Samsung tablets for the Greerton center.

 Staff and clients have not be put off by the experience and are gearing up for next years theme of 

  "Color My World"
