Pukeahu Game Dev Girls :  Make games & learn code!

Learn to create a multi-level video game (think Super Mario Bros), inspired by the characters and stories of Pukeahu and Aotearoa, including some awesome wāhine. This afterschool programme is for girls aged 11-15 who are curious about coding and making video games. No previous experience is required. Takes place at the Pukeahu Education Centre on Mondays from 29 July – 16 September, 3.45-5.15pm.

More details including costs and registration are here.

National War Memorial Carillon

Free Carillon recitals

Every Wednesday at 12.30pm
Every Friday at 12.30pm
Every Sunday at 2.30pm

We invite you to Pukeahu to hear National Carillonist, Timothy Hurd QSM, playing the Carillon bells – all 74 of them (but probably not at the same time!) at our regular free recitals. Spice up your weekday lunchtime or Sunday afternoon with the sounds of the Carillon. Feel free to bring a picnic along.

As the Carillon is best heard from outside, we recommend you bring a coat for the recitals as we will keep calm and ‘carillon’ rain or shine!   

On occasion we have visiting military bands and guest performers - so do check this page regularly or follow us on facebook for event updates.
