Manurewa West Primary School – Kiwi Can Programme
What is Kiwi Can?
Kiwi Can is the Foundation for Youth Development’s primary and intermediate school programme, it teaches essential life skills and values like resilience, respect, integrity and manners in schools all around the country.
It’s a whole school programme with all children attending a Kiwi Can lesson once a week, every week of the school year. Specially trained Kiwi Can Leaders work in pairs delivering the high energy, interactive and, most importantly, fun lessons and are awesome role models for the kids to look up to.
The programme aims to equip young New Zealanders with:
· A sense of self-worth and self-confidence
· The ability to take responsibility and be accountable for actions
· Valuable life skills
· A ‘can do’ attitude to the challenges of life
