Discovery is a safe and unique environment where teenagers from a variety of backgrounds spend seven days exploring the idea of what it is to be a useful member of society. Discovery is a successful programme because of the diversity of its participants. Due to the teen culture that is currently experienced in New Zealand, we need to know about the experiences of the participants in order to provide the best Discovery experience for each group of teenagers. Please answer these questions as honestly as possible.
Parent’s day is an important part of the Discovery Programme. It is an opportunity for parents and caregivers to learn about what their teen has done over the week and how to support them to continue using the Discovery tools in their life. It is important that at least one person attends for your teen.
Registration for Parent day is from 9.00am - 9.30am on the final day of the programme (Saturday). Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea are provided for two parents/caregivers. Parents day will finish at approximately 5.00pm.
For catering purposes on Parents Day, 2 parents/caregivers are included in the registration fee to attend the day, please contact the office if you would like additional caregivers to attend.
