“We learn, about compassion and honesty, and being kind to everyone” – Jack, Year 3

We are Launchpad

Launchpad (formerly the Churches Education Commission) is a non-for-profit organisation that presents Christian Values Education in local schools under the name Launchpad Champions. Our Launchpad Champions programme is a 30-minute lesson that encourages children to make positive life choices and grow their sense of self-worth and character. The programme is delivered in a fun and interactive manner.

Our programme connects with the New Zealand Curriculum, set out by the Ministry of Education, combined with values and youth-friendly stories from the Bible that are relevant to children.
