  • October School Holiday workshops

We offer a range of workshops for year 11, 12 and 13 secondary school students (or age equivalent).

Although we are not charging fees for the workshops, we respectfully request that you bring a koha of a can of food, or non-perishable food item (i.e. pasta, rice). Half of all proceeds will be donated to Auckland City Mission and the other half will go to Unitec students experiencing hardship.
