Many of our children who are in after school care with us every day don’t get the chance to take part in sports, dance and other active pursuits. So, we decided to bring those extracurricular activities to them.
With the help of Sport Hawke’s Bay Tu Manawa fund, we’re running a variety of physical activities at Raureka School as a pilot programme.
First up has been Taekwon-Do sessions in term 2 and we’ve got rugby booked for the first half of term 3. Other ideas include Kapa Haka, netball, boxing and dance.
The Raureka kids are loving it and if the pilot continues to prove successful, we’ll look to roll it out to other centres.
