Preserving Life with Sound for our Community
Free Hearing Education
for Our Community
We are a charity organisation that has been operating in Hawke's Bay for over 50 years, over this time we have evolved our services to meet the changing needs of our community. Since 2012 we have been providing a FREE education program to equip our community with the knowledge they need to protect their hearing and to raise awareness on noise induced hearing loss and other hearing related issues.
Our mission is to reduce the number of people diagnosed with noise induced hearing loss in our community by providing our FREE Education Programs and encouraging participants to share the information with their friends and whanau. Our programs are available to all Early Childcare Centers, Kindergartens, Schools, Tertiary Centers and Community Groups in Napier, the Hastings District and Central Hawke's Bay and are adapted to suit the age of the participants. For pre-schools we deliver fun, interactive activities on how to protect your hearing, a 'Hearing Song' and also some basic sign (NZ Sign Language); for the school age children there are some interesting and interactive science based activities including education on the anatomy and workings of the inner ear, ear care and communication strategies.
