Notice reference #: 1HAGki

Thanks to grateful support from Christchurch City Council Sustainability Fund we are pleased to announce that the fun TOCK Environmental Education Programme is now being delivered to primary and preschools in the Christchurch district following a successful pilot.

This programme is specifically aimed at young children aged 3 to 8 years with the goal of engaging them in caring for our amazing planet Earth in a fun way following the principles of Kaitiakitanga and supports delivery of environmental education as part of the primary and pre school curriculum.

The programme involves an interactive TOCK visit/workshop at your school with songs, captivating storytelling and hands on activities followed by the opportunity to get involved in environmental themed school challenges with prize incentives, school fundraising, free access to TOCK environmental educational resources and ideas specifically aimed at children in this age group.

The school workshops are completely free based on a maximum of 4 individual back to back sessions in the same school.

The programme is funded from February 2021 to December 2021 for the Christchurch area only. Please get in touch to let us know when would be the best time to arrange a TOCK visit.

TOCK the robot and the TOCK education programme are completely local and unique to Christchurch.
