We are in then process of establishing an open learning facility for the Ruapehu community right here in Ohākune.
This high-tech facility will provide computer science programmes for all ages, and also help support anyone wishing to study towards a post-school qualification from any institution nationally or internationally.
Coding, Robotics, Game Crafting, 3D Design, Web Design, Cloud-based programmes for businesses these are just some of the skills people can learn at our facility!
Other facilities to help our not-for-profit venture become sustainable include meeting rooms, training rooms, an extra large conference room and 16 hot desks/workstations for use.

The second annual Community Careers Expo is to be held at The Centre, Seddon St Raetihi on Wednesday 25th February.
The expo will run from 3-6pm. Again this year 10 RAL (Ruapehu Alpine Lifts) cadetships are available, 2 WPI (Winstone Pulp International) cadetships and multiple part-time and full-time jobs are available.
This year we are very lucky to have Tawera Nikau, rugby league legend, businessman and motivational speaker as our guest on the mic at 3.10pm.
Quick-fire interviews will be held from 4pm – 6pm.
Last year the Expo resulted in 38 employment outcomes.
This year Ruapehu REAP and the Ministry of Social Development have partnered with our group to host the event – for which we are very grateful!
The four weeks worth of ‘Work Ready’ Workshops we facilitated were well attended and have prepared community and whanau members to put their best foot forward at the Expo. There are so many more employment opportunities ‘up for grabs’ this year, we cant wait to see the results and the benefit to local whanau and our local economy.
The inaugural Ruapehu TopTown has been rescheduled to now happen on Saturday 14th of March in Waiouru. Hosted alongside the NZ Defence Force at the Waiouru Military Training Facility it is sure to attract a lot of participants from our active whanau and communities, and will be a fun-filled yet competitive event!!
The Event runs from 1.30pm – 4pm.
Teams are asked to meet at 1.15pm at the Waiouru Rugby & Sports Ground. Competitors should bring: a towel and a change of clothes.
Each team will have 20 members, with five from each of the following age groups required: 13-16yrs, 17-25yrs, 26-40yrs, 41+yrs.
There are 8 challenges in total. A medium level of fitness is advised.
