Kia ora everyone! We hope everyone is doing well and for the students that their studies for the second semester have gone well.
Unfortunately we have decided to cancel Twalk for 2020. With the outburst of Covid-19 earlier in the year pushing us further and further back we missed the sweet spot for hosting such an awesome event. We did everything we could to try and keep the event running for all to enjoy this year however with setback after setback we had to make the call with time running out and students set to return home so we regret to inform you that Twalk will not run in 2020.
We are sorry for the delay with the update and for the terrible news and hope 2021 brings new light with Twalk and for a more bright and enjoyable year for everyone!!
Wish everyone a warm and enjoyable summer filled with adventure!
The Twalk team
Kia ora everyone! We hope you’re all staying safe and taking care of yourselves and your families.
Unfortunately, due to the restrictions regarding Covid-19, Twalk will not be able to go ahead in May. Therefore, we are announcing that Twalk 2020 will be postponed until further notice. We will review at a later date whether it will be possible to host the event later in the year.
