All Right? Campaign update: July 2017

Kia ora

How you doin'? With lots of bugs and coughs around at the moment it would be nice to be able to 'push pause' for a bit and reset. While our plans for a pause button have not yet got to the development stage, we do have a few wintry wellbeing gems to share.

Arohanui,
The All Right? team

Open City - Sharing sweet, free things to do

Gap Filler Co-Founder Coralie Winn with one of the special tickets issued by the new Open City meter in Cathedral Square.Gap Filler and All Right? have teamed up to create a parking meter with a difference in Cathedral Square.

This week our Open City parking meter began issuing tickets displaying inner-city adventures that celebrate the undervalued, sweet, free things to do in Christchurch.

Adventures like a perfect branch to swing on in the Botanic Gardens, checking out a quirky bit of street art, or playing a giant arcade game.

These little secrets and over 50 more have so far been suggested by locals and visitors on the Open City website.

As well as being a great, free family activity for the holidays, Open City is also perfect for the many people who have recently relocated to the inner city for work.
Each Open City adventure aligns with one of the Five Ways to Wellbeing. Connect, take notice, give, be active and keep learning are all actions scientifically-proven to improve wellbeing.

Add your favourite free thing to do in Christchurch to the meter on the Open City website.

Open City is helping unlock some the city’s best kept secrets.

All Right? Parenting campaign

Got a parenting question you want answered? Visit www.allright.org.nz/parents.Got a parenting question you’d like answered? Have we got something for you…

Our new All Right Parenting web portal is full of useful tips and tools for surviving the ups and downs of parenting.

The toolkit includes information on nearly 70 free Canterbury parenting courses, downloadable routine charts, lots of school holiday activities suggested by people just like you, and heaps of fun wellbeing boosters for the whole whānau.

We’ve also created parenting guides on some of the issues parents often ask us about – like helping kids be grateful and kind, manage their worries and keep calm. And because your wellbeing matters too, there are also guides for mums and dads focused on helping you to look after yourself.

Sparklers has landed

All Right?'s Parenting portal has been designed to complement our Sparklers wellbeing toolkit for schools which we launched earlier in June.

Sparklers contains 36 wellbeing activities for teachers and educators to use in the classroom. The activities are simple, easy, and proven to work, and cover areas as diverse as tummy breathing, being aware of your senses, and building strong relationships.

See Sparklers in action at St James School in the video below.

Whānau activity cards are back!

A Māori family doing a craft project together.Last year All Right? produced a set of 20 activity cards featuring a range of seasonal activities that whānau can do together.

The packs were incredibly popular and we soon ran out. So we’re delighted to report we now have some activity packs back in stock.

Order your Whānau pack online - right at the very bottom of the page.

The Whānau pack activities can also be viewed online.

Let’s finish with some kindness - Shirley Primary style!

As these amazing Shirley Primary School students demonstrate, even the little things we do can make a big difference to someone’s day. And it makes you feel great too!


All Right?We're always keen to hear your stories, thoughts and ideas. Get in touch with All Right?
