Sport fiesta in store for Tupapa youngsters

“We are very excited to continue this community initiative that provides opportunities for all our children to be active and learn key health messages”, says Michelle Paiti, Just Project Manager.
The initiative was instigated by Just Play’s Manager, Michelle Paiti and Public Health’s Karen Tairea following on from the NCD Awareness week in February last year.
Through this programme that runs once a month in different villages around Raroronga. Partnerships have been built and strengthened with Public Health and the other sporting codes to help promote the awareness of NCD’s and provide more opportunities for development for our younger ones.
“We would like to encourage all the children to come and join us for an afternoon of fun activities and games where they have the opportunity to have a go at a variety of sports.”
“A series of activities will be on a rotational system so all the children that will attend can experience all different sport games on Wednesday.”
Water will be provided during the afternoon however kids are asked to wear hats to keep cool.
Ministry of Health will also share this month’s health message 5+a day with the children during one of the compulsory water breaks.
So parents organise your kids to come down to Victoria Park after school where they will be supervised, safe and active.
Paiti would like to thank all current partners of the programme along with rugby league who are joining us for the first time.
Paiti also acknowledge Australian Aid for the funding of the Just Play social development programme in the Pacific.
