Tools for Schools. For one in four NZ children the school day means going hungry at lunch time, not having a bag, lunch box, or even a pen and paper to write on. Children in these situations struggle to learn – unless provided the Tools For School.
Tools for Schools – Charity Team Building
The theme of the event is very much ‘Back to School’ as teams face off in a range of school-subject style interactive challenges. With the ultimate goal of successfully earning all of the items on offer to fill a school backpack, competition will be fierce and a good time is guaranteed to be had by all.
As the programme draws to a conclusion, the introduction of children from a low decile school adds a new twist to the day – teams have now provided the Tools For School to help some very deserving children make a fair go of their education.

“We were delighted to partner with TeamUpEvents to give back to the Rotorua community. The Tools for School concept provided by TeamUp Events was fun and very effective – the Conference delegates were visibly moved when they realised we were helping local children and had the opportunity to meet them. Many thanks to Stu Robertson and his team!”

“I have seen the photos and as we say a photo tells a thousand words. Our children were just so happy that someone had given them a bag full of these tools that could help improve their education. The smiles say it all and they will remember this for such a long time. Thank you Conventions & Incentives New Zealand for allowing us to be part of this and thank you Team Up Events for making it happen.
– John Naera. Principal, Rotorua Primary School
