Come to a workshop and receive the Kia Rite Hoea guide. This guide is a great resource for anyone organising community recreation, arts activities, programmes and events.
Kia Rite Hoea will help you put your idea into action. There are planning sheets that provide you with an easy step-by-step plan combined with a workshop environment where you can discuss your idea with like-minded peers to turn your great idea into reality.
If you want successful and accessible recreation opportunities for everyone in your community, then Kia Rite Hoea is for you. The tools in Kia Rite Hoea are user-friendly, ready to use immediately and will save you many hours of research and indecision.
Kia Rite Hoea includes 55 pages of jam-packed guidance, checklists, hot-tips and case studies. It has 27 templates that, if you use them, will be all the paperwork you need for a community recreation programme.
Kia Rite Hoea (previously named Get Set Go!) was originally developed by Wellington City Council in 1998, who then partnered with Christchurch City Council several years later and has received a Recreation Aotearoa award for Outstanding Programme. This edition has been developed as a national resource, by Recreation Aotearoa, Christchurch City Council, Skills Active and Aktive Auckland.
What does Kia Rite Hoea mean?
It is the phrase that waka ama/canoe paddlers use and translate to 'get ready...paddle'. We have used it here as a metaphor to describe the purpose of this resource - to help you to get your programme, event or activity ready to take off!
Four collaborators worked together to produce it and it is linked to two Skills Active qualifications to help you achieve success in your work.
