The OSCAR Legal Kit
Our Legal Kit was originally published in 1998, when it won the National OSCAR supporting organisation award. (Does anyone out there remember the first OSCAR conference in Rotorua?)
This third edition (2008) has been further updated to reflect changes in legislation such as the Clean Slate Act. The Kit is 70 pages and includes an extensive section on "How the Law Safeguards Children" and guidelines on insurance coverage for OSCAR programmes. We will publish further free update pages as required and the kit is in a ring binder, so it's easy to replace the pages.

Ready to Use Game Resources
We know that a certain amount of programme planning happens “on the fly”. So we’ve put together these instructions for various games on laminated cards, held together with a sturdy metal ring.
There are 20 games using cards and dice. Each card has easy to follow rules, recommended age, group size and on the back is a quick summary to jog your memory if you have played the game before. This is the first of several sets that we are aiming to produce. Next year we will add a collection of active games and games with simple boards and counters.
