Whitney Street School in Blenheim Queens Market Mall, Blenheim. Phone 579 4707 joined with Picton, Linkwater, Havelock and Kaikoura Schools to offer the once-aweek programme. Whitney Street acting principal Lisa Lissaman says it has proven to be a sound decision, with the children having already taken well to the Kiwi Can tutors. ‘‘It fits really well with the Whitney Way, which is our vision and drive and focuses on respect, honesty and making the right choices. Kiwi Can just slides in beautifully with what we have been doing with the children,’’ she says. The tutors are also seen by the children as being different to the teachers at the school, giving them another avenue to bond with adults and even confide in them, Lissaman says. ‘‘It’s not a sit and listen thing. They play outside and do games which fit in with what they are learning about that day, so I think the children see the tutors more as their buddies.’’ Foundation for Youth Development [FYD] Marlborough programme and communications co-ordinator Kelvin Watt says they are thrilled to have another school on board. ‘‘It been going really well in the other 6510744AA Pull the other one: Whitney Street School pupils have fun during one of their Kiwi Can sessions. four schools and getting a school in Blenheim joining in is great,’’ he says. The programme is for pupils aged 5 to 13 and aims to give them a sense of selfworth and self-confidence, teach them to take responsibility and be accountable for their actions, and have a ‘‘can-do’’ attitude. The weekly lessons, which last up to 50 minutes, are designed to be fun and interactive as well as be something different to regular school work. Linkwater School parent Lucy Maclean Photo: SUPPLIED says her son Jack, 8, looks forward to his Wednesday Kiwi Can sessions each week. While she hadn’t seen the programme being delivered to the pupils she has seen the results and is fully supportive of it. ‘‘I find it really great as a parent – sometimes when I’m trying to get him to do something I say ‘what would a Kiwi Can kid do’ and it gets him thinking about doing it differently. It’s great to be able to tie in what they are learning with home life,’’ she says. T FOR 36 MONTHS H Achieve more every day with a 6 Series tractor.
