About Us

Our Story

image180

Here we are, over 2 years since the earth shook. 

The South Marlborough communities of Seddon, Ward, Kekerengu and Clarence have shared, rebuilt, laughed and cried.


Our lives changed.

Our community united. 

Our journey to recover stability has been worthwhile and rewarding.


The schools in Seddon and Ward are the heart of our community. The schools are well through the process of rebuilding, so our focus has now turned towards our youngest children.  


We need a safe environment to take us sustainably into the future.

Our aim

The services for our littlies have been reduced, but we are hanging in there. 


We see the future in working together.  

Simultaneously strengthening our community, our whanau and our services.

This way we can preserve the different services that provide for the diverse needs of tamariki and whanau within this community.


The Awatere Early Childhood Education Hub (ECE Hub) will provide a home for Awatere Flaxbourne Plunket, Awatere Playcentre and the Awatere Early Learning Centre. 


Health, education, care and whanau support from different services - all within one modern building.
