The Y (formerly known as YMCA) is super excited to be a part of the Te Kowhai School community to deliver a fun holiday programme in a safe and secure environment.
Our school holiday programme, for 5 to 13 - year olds gives them the space to wind down after a busy term while keeping them interested and involved through different activities each day. From games and sport to creative self expression, they'll make new friends and stay busy - you'll be picking up happy kids at the end of each day!

For years The Y (formerly YMCA North) has provided a safe and secure environment, where kids can just be’ and enjoy their time with us. We want to support every parent by not only being a fun programme, but also a safe haven where kids’ development is supported and learning is recognised.
YMCA North is Aotearoa’s first and only accredited organisation through the Australian Childhood Foundation (ACF). We are proud to lead the children’s workforce as a child-safe organisation. Find out more.
Yes, we do! As an approved holiday programme, parents who are eligible can access the OSCAR subsidy from Work and Income. If this is you, contact email@example.com as we need to complete Part C of the application form, and you will need to pay a 20% deposit. There are different subsidy rates depending on your eligibility – check out www.winz.govt.nz for more information.
The Y uses an online booking system called AimyPlus. To book, you will need to register first on https://ymca-akl-ham-bop.aimyplus.com/ - this is where you will put in all your details, and information about your child/ren including any medical conditions, and who can collect your child.
Active kids are happy kids! Clothing children can move in is best, and for those who go hard, a change of clothes is always great to have in the bag. Children will need to bring a drinkbottle, sunhat, morning tea and lunch every day.
Unfortunately no, not at this stage.
Our Out of School space is based in the middle of the school - when you come into the main entrance, we are in the building on the left hand side.
Children must be signed in and out each day by an authorised person. You can add as many people as you would like into your AimyPlus profile to collect your child. If someone turns up to collect a child and they are not on the approved list, we will call you to confirm. If your child will be making their own way to/from the programme please email firstname.lastname@example.org so you can complete the arrive/depart unaccompanied form.
