Resources available at your local Library

The TumbleBook Library is a fantastic resource for those who are reading independently but also provides support to students who require skill building. Read along with hundreds of children’s titles, watch informative video clips on topics like science and geography, play word and memory games, spelling games and puzzles. 

Swapbots is an exciting platform and puzzle game that teaches coding to children. This game introduces young children to the world of computer science using stories and games, encourages collaborative play, and is safe for all ages.

Access these resources online here.

The Generosity New Zealand database is a great place to start looking for funding for community projects and activities. Access the database here.
