Student Volunteer Week 2020

Hannah Cunningham from Volunteer Marlborough

✨ Today is the start of Student Volunteer Week 2020! 🎉⁠

SVW2020 is all about celebrating and acknowledging the impact that student volunteers make. This week is also an opportunity to enable students to try volunteering!⁠

Students, universities, schools and organisations all over New Zealand will be celebrating SVW2020 through a variety of events and festivities that celebrate our student volunteers and connect young people with opportunities to get involved in volunteering. ⁠

There are thousands of high-school and university students who connect, give and grow through volunteering. This contribution has a major impact on communities and causes, on both the national and international stage.⁠

“Collective Impact: Give.Grow.Connect” is the theme of #SVW2020. Student volunteers give a hand and add real value to the community. Together they make a substantial impact on Aotearoa New Zealand. By giving to a community or cause, student volunteers grow and flourish. They gain knowledge and create change within their communities. Through volunteering, mahi aroha and social impact, student volunteers create their own social and professional networks. They connect with peers and people who share their same passion and interests.⁠

For information on how to get involved with SVW2020 visit www.studentvolunteerweek.nz... or contact the Volunteer Marlborough office (call 03-577-9388 or email vm@volunteermarlborough.org.nz)⁠

Is choosing a co-ed or single sex school a parent's right?

Katy Jones Reporter from The Nelson Mail

Nayland College, the only mixed gender high school in Nelson city, says it will implement an enrolment zone in 2021, because of the school's growing roll. The zone will likely mean families in central Nelson won't have the choice of a co-ed school any more, with their local high school being either all boys school, Nelson College, or Nelson College for Girls. But some parents say their children are not suited to a single sex school.
