Want to Get Connected to the Internet?

In association with Skinny Jump, REAP Wairarapa can help you get online if...
You have no internet connection in the place you live (except for your phone); and
• Have school aged children living in the house; or
• People who are looking for work or
• New New Zealanders with English as a second language; or
• Seniors

AND have the right mobile data coverage where you live. Don't worry, we will check that out with you in the phone!

We cannot provide you with a device like a laptop or tablet, but we can get you connected to the internet for a monthly fee of $5.00 per month with Skinny Jump.
This gives you 30GB of data. You can 'top up' up to 5 times per month.

There are no contracts and no credit checks.

In these non contact times, your internet modem will be couriered to you and you just need to plug it in and put in your password!

To find out if you are eligible, contact Peter at REAP 027 222 7690 or email jump@reapwairarapa.nz

🎨ART CHALLENGE: today we have the second challenge for our online art club with fabulous artist Katie Gracie.

ART CHALLENGE NUMBER TWO: VIRUS 🦠

Remember there are NO RULES! Use whatever materials you like - pencil, crayons, felts, collage, paint, computers, stuff from the garden, dress up, photos…let your imagination run wild.

Once your work is finished, take a photo and share it in the comments section (along with your first name, how old you are, and what school you go to). Get an adult or whānau member to help you with this - and remind them that uploading photos mean you are giving REAP and Katie permission to reuse the photos.

It’s a chance for you to show the world how creative you are by making amazing art.
Remember, once you’re finished, upload it to the comments section. Keep creating, stay safe and keep cool!
