KIA ORA, KO CLAIRE MEPHAM AHAU!
I have a background in Playcentre, and love the opportunity to engage tamariki in their first experiences of the arts. I also have Qualifications in Culinary arts and in group fitness. I love to see children having fun outside the classroom, and taking a fresh and deeper look at the arts in our Community. I believe that every child is an artist, and should be given the opportunity to tell their own stories through the arts.
As the Learning Programmes Specialist at Whirinaki Whare Taonga, I am committed to engaging and exciting learning opportunities for our tamariki. Through educational packages, I can offer arts experiences that supplement learning inside the classroom, based on your curriculum requirements. I look forward to meeting the students of Upper Hutt and engaging them in the arts!
Feel free to contact me to discuss our upcoming and current programmes, or to place bookings for educational groups.
See you soon at Whirinaki Whare Taonga!
