Activities for senior migrants

The Office for Seniors has provided funding to Multicultural Rotorua to offer free activities to senior migrants over the age of 55 years. The activities will be offered by Parksyde Activity Centre. Parksyde caters for the social, recreational, health and educational needs of the youthful 55 plus age group.

Here are the activities that senior migrants can attend ten times for free:

1 Embroidery, 9 am on Wednesdays
2 Beginners Tai Chi, 9 am on Wednesdays
3 Experienced Tai Chi, 10 am on Wednesdays
4 Indoor bowls, 1 pm on Wednesdays
5 Experienced Mahjong, 1 pm on Thursday
6 Seated aerobics for the unfit, 2.15 pm on Thursday
7 Table tennis for experienced players, 10.30 am on Friday

These sessions are free for migrants over 55 years of age.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of your first session at Parksyde. Tell reception that you are a migrant and that you have come for a free activity funded by Multicultural Rotorua.

There will be free tea or coffee available to each migrant and a buddy from their class after the session has ended.

You can join the activities in any week; we hope that you will enjoy learning new skills and making new friends and that you will keep coming for ten sessions.

Parksyde is at 9 Tarewa Place. There is lots of free parking and there is a bus from Arawa Street every 30 minutes which stops nearby at 47 Tarewa Road. Take the number 5 bus to Western Heights.
