    Annaleise, You're a star

    08-10-2016 by Lauren

    Today Annaleise came to paint 10 little faces at my sons 5th birthday party. The theme was Star Wars and my son wanted to be a storm trooper. As Annaleise hadn't painted a storm trooper before she did her research and after finding a little face to practice on, she sent me a picture to make sure that it was what my birthday boy was after. She was spot on! We had such a great day today, the kids were so pleased with their face paint, the parents were raving about her detailed work and the teacher who was at Kindy with us where we held our party was so impressed she has her down to paint the kids at their end of year Christmas party. Annaleise you are fantastic, so professional and with a great set up. You had all your pictures up for the kids to choose from and you were just great with all the little people. Thanks so much for being another wonderful smiley face at our party. We highly recommend you to all!.

    Answer from Fiction Faces on 25-10-2016:
    Thank you! It was a pleasure to be part of your sons party. It was great to meet all of you. Annaleise

    Lillybeth catered a large community Christmas event at the Mount Maunganui Salvation Army, she arrived with all equipment and was ready to go in a few short moments. I was busy elsewhere but had the most sublime pleasure seeing children run past with the look of pure delight in wearing one of Lillybeth's creations. Each child was treated as such precious individuals and they knew it. Lillybeth's talent and caring service was worth so much more than the actual fiancial cost. I highly recommend her.

    The environment is friendly, welcoming, and extremely positive. I can confidently say this school is a quality Taekwondo club. They teach and develop excellent programs for children and for adults too. Master Sonja is very knowledgeable and spends time to make sure each student understands and are making progress.. Master Sonja has monthly goals to teach the students different values like respect and complimenting people. This is a great Taekwoddo school and if definitely worth checking out! I recommend Taekwondo Koryobop to everyone. I have been to other Taekwondo schools, but Master Sonja Janssen is simply the best! a NO. 1 Taekwondo School.

A true Taekwondo lady with amazing Taekwondo experience and background! She is so great with kids. She has taught me not only great Taekwondo skills, but most importantly life skills, discipline, confidence, strength and have found with Koryobop an amazing family and friends… It is not only a Taekwondo club, but also we are a real happy Taekwondo family. The Master instructors, Master Sonja Janssen-Sahebzad and Master Abraham Janssen are very encouraging and amazing. Koryobop Taekwondo is truly the BEST Martial arts school. Their students come first! Master Sonja and Master Abraham are both very professional and they love what they do! The positive energy and enthusiasm and discipline given are so beautiful. I would recommend Taekwondo Koryobop the fullest, they are the best World Taekwondo school to go to!!! I am very grateful to be part of Taekwondo Korybop.

    Bring back aerobics!

    21-10-2015 by Codyre family

    My daughter has been doing aerobics now for nearly 5 years. After trying dance and then gymnastics, neither really inspired her. She went on to try Aerobics which combines both. She was immediately hooked. The passion and drive my daughter now has with her aerobics is amazing. She just loves it. Not only has she found something she loves she has formed some amazing friendships. The coaches and director Amanda are fantastic with the girls. Highly recommend you encourage your daughter, or son, to give it a go!

    Our daughter has attended drama classes with Felicity and Gina from 2013-2015. Felicity brings an unparalleled vibrancy to her classes with innovative idea's and imagination. Our daughter LOVED attending both classescand being involved with the canvas bsg theatre each year. The production nights are well organised and so much fun for the children and audience alike. Our daughter speaks confidently in front of school assemblies/speeches etc now which I'm sure canvas bag drama school has helped with.

    Answer from Canvas Bag Drama School on 16-02-2016:
    Thanks for posting. Drama has to be vibrant, even when it's introspective, and developing imagination is paramount to us as it expands across all aspects of a child's learning.

    Canvas Bag Drama classes -outstanding in so many ways

    03-02-2016 by Sue Bryden

    My daughter has been enjoying Felicity Williams drama classes for the past 5 years and unlike so many after school activities for which her enthusiasm waxes and wanes these drama classes are a MUST do. Simply put, they are exceptional. Through them she has made wonderful friends, developed an extraordinary love iof language and performance and an ability to express herself as part of a team rather than as a pampered soloist. The quality of teaching is great, it's clearly fun and extends and encourages her imagination and self confidence. If we could chose only one after school activity it would be Canvas Bag Drama classes every time.

    Answer from Canvas Bag Drama School on 03-02-2016:
    Thank you for the positive feedback! We take great pride in providing experiences which enrich children's lives and hep them become compassionate and articulate human beings - a lot of this is due to improvisation games and having to see situations from all perspectives.

    I loved training at the Kung Fu Academy, but unfortunately I was only visiting my friend in Palmy and they don't have a class in Auckland. I learnt heaps from the two classes I attended, kicking, punching, throws, wrestling, it was pretty full on!

    21-01-2019 by D.

    Joyce is an inspiration, my daughter loves her classes and will keep taking them as long as they are available. She has learned and grown so much!

    Holiday classes

    29-01-2016 by Fiona

    "Our 13 year old daughter has been attending Joyce’s holiday art classes for the last 1 ½ years. She has always enjoyed her time there. Joyce always has a different project for them to work on so they are never doing the same thing twice. Although it is a group session she will focus individually on each child and they can all be working on quite separate projects. Joyce also takes the time to teach the children different art techniques to help develop their skills. For anyone who loves art Young at Art Downunder is a great place to attend."

    Chess Power provide a fantastic opportunity for school children to develop their chess skills

    19-01-2016 by Wayne McDougall

    Chess Power provide a fantastic opportunity for school children to develop their chess skills and to take part in many exciting and well-run tournaments throughout the country. Head Coach Paul Macdonald builds a strong rapport with children of all ages, motivating and encouraging each one to do their best. Chess Power offer an extensive array of certificates, trophies, medals and prizes – no one goes home from a Chess Power event empty-handed, although the prestigious awards are reserved for those who truly merit them. Girls are given extra encouragement – although just as skilled as the boys, fewer tend to compete in chess – Chess Power are working hard to correct this by encouraging meritous performance. Paul Macdonald has a strong team working with him. Even when he is not personally present, other Chess Power staff bring the same calm discipline and inspiration to their tournaments. And often tournaments include practical coaching tips, and brain-stimulating puzzles, so the children leave as better players. For interschool tournaments the Chess Power method of taking the scores of the best four kids on the day is much easier and fairer then schools making up their own ranked teams - no allegations of abuse by mis-rankings of the team (deliberate or otherwise) - all players have an incentive to do their best and a silly mistake by your top player means another player can step up and take their place. The website at www.chesspower.co.nz contains detailed results on each tournament – very useful when trying to identify challenging opponents and weaknesses that need work. And helpful for ranking players when required for other school chess tournaments. Paul and his team at Chess Power have a passion for chess and for children to play chess. I am very grateful that they give so many children so many opportunities to play at well run tournaments. Being able to play often, and competitively, is very important for improving play. Chess Power are a powerful force for children's chess in New Zealand. If you want your kids to succeed at chess, send them to a Chess Power event. Thank you Paul, and your team. Long may you continue growing kids minds!

    The Chess Power team do a fantastic job

    19-01-2016 by Kim Teofilo

    Joseph Teofilo from the Wairarapa, who has participated in past Chess Power National Finals and Chess Power Champions Trophy events including October this year, was awarded wairarapa Maori male Junior Sportsman of the Year and the Peoples Choice trophy for his achievements in chess both regionally and nationally. From Joseph's achievement at this regional awards evening, it has put a spotlight on chess and we're hoping this will encourage more of our young to take part! Thanks for all you do Paul, you and your team do a fantastic job, and Joseph is certainly looking forward to the 2016 tournaments!
