Hi, my name is Ruvi and I have been working at the Y since 2016. I was born in Sri Lanka, raised in California and now live in New Zealand. I enjoy a variety of activities including, music, sports, reading & working. Here at Cashmere we try to keep continuity between school and the Y. We work together with the Cashmere staff to ensure that the children are receiving the same message from both environments. Structure is very important to us and the day is set up as such. A typical day includes the following; Check In – kids come and check in with a leader and then sit in their team. Fitness/Mahi Tahi Time – we have quick 15min session that includes a variety of activities from yoga to fitness to promote an active lifestyle. Afternoon tea- We provide a healthy heart menu that is provided to us by our chef at Camp Kaitoke. We then split up into our clubroom activities and outdoor play time. We finish the day up by having reading and homework time for the older kids and colouring in time for the young ones; followed up by cards or boardgames. Our goal is to maintain a safe and fun environment.
