Just in the nick of time ...

Just in the nick of time, the Ruru team has created its second new scavenger hunt ... in a very festive green to compliment our red one!

The new hunt is called I digress ... on all things colourful and muses on all manner of brightly (or not-so-brightly) hued heritage objects.

So give our new scavenger hunts a go and collect your Christmas-inspired red and green badge set this holiday season!

Time for a gold badge or two

Our Central School label writers dropped by the office today to collect their GOLD badges ... here they are wearing them proudly and generally looking awesome!

They also presented us with a scavenger hunt they designed all by themselves.  The Ruru team looks forward to giving it a go and seeing if we can be as speedy doing their hunt as they were doing ours!

Amazing job guys, well done!  We hope we get to work with you again next year.  And don't forget to do a new RED scavenger hunt in the school holidays!

Fully fledged!

Our amazing Ruru apprentices from Central School are now fully fledged label writers!  And what an awesome job they did too.  Check out their labels about some of Puke Ariki's precious heritage objects and the personal connections that inspired their choices:

Our fledglings are visiting again on Wednesday to collect their very well deserved GOLD Ruru badges ... we look forward to seeing them then!

Summertime ...

What does summer mean to you?  Is it a punnet of fresh strawberries?

Or some luscious looking raspberries?? (aye Andrew and Charlotte!)

Or your favourite Christmas ornament (that just happens to be a red London bus)? ...

Well, for a bunch of summer Puke Ariki visitors, we're hoping Taranaki's long hot months are going to mean doing a new RED Ruru scavenger hunt!

We have digressed on the subject of summertime ... surfing, catching kai, chillin' with the family.  The new scavenger hunt will be available to the public just before Christmas ... as will a second new hunt designed specially by our talented Education team member Erin Flanigan. 

In the meantime, feel free to tempt (or is that taunt??!!) Puke Ariki's keen Ruru fans with the promise of the long awaited, oft requested RED SCAVENGER HUNT!
