Edukits has invented and created an Android phone app to make things easier and on hand for everyone.
It is preloaded with help numbers for different needs and age levels (emergencies, Kidsline, Youthline, suicide crisis, etc) so people can call for help at the touch of a button.
It is completely FREE and without adverts, pop-ups, tracking or obligations.
More can be seen including a tutorial on our download page: https://edukits.co.nz/app1/index.html.

The Sir Peter Blake Trust, in partnership with New Zealand Geographic, is excited to announce our newest experiential learning programme for students - NZ-VR, our newest outreach programme which we hope will connect thousands of young Kiwis with the marine environment, launching into schools in 2019.
Using virtual reality, students will experience the rich biodiversity that exists below the surface of the Hauraki Gulf and connected open spaces, as well as the damage that's been done to the ecosystem.

FMG Jr Young Farmer Of The Year (previously TeenAG) aims to introduce and promote a positive picture about agriculture and agricultural careers from an early age. The goal is to show the stimulating and fun side of agriculture to students from all walks of life, you don't need to be off a farm, you just need to have a love of the land and be keen to get your hands dirty.

AgriKidsNZ is for primary school students aged 8–13.
Membership is FREE and participation is largely based in the annual fun-filled competition series which runs alongside the TeenAg Competitions and FMG Young Farmer Contest.
The aim is to promote the fun side of agriculture while children develop valuable skills and make lifelong friendships. Members don’t need to come off a farm, they just need to have a love of the land and be keen to get their hands a bit dirty!
