Zespri Young & Healthy Virtual Adventure
"I liked how students had to think about accountability- what makes a healthy diet, what makes a healthy lifestyle. A number of children were far more conscientious about making change with their choices and their active lifestyle vs use of devices vs their personal sleep patterns. A number often turned up to school tired- gaming all night- I noticed a change in these students where they were more focussed. I think this was directly impacted by them having to enter personal data which I could see, and they could also see how far we had travelled on our journey.

"Me and my family continue to do lots of little challenges together at home. We try and see who makes the healthier lunch, who drinks the most water and who does the most steps in a day. It is really funny because my mum and dad are so competitive between them. I love it when we play more games together to increase our steps." - Mackenzie, Pukete School"
We transform lives in a way that will save some in the future too
We are on a mission to help create a nation of WellBeings by delivering engaging programs designed that help tamariki embed small daily habits that enable them to be ready to learn, and develop and nurture their physical and mental hauora / wellbeing.
We use a little bit of clever and unique technology to engage our "iPad generation" to help them embed the knowledge and habits to make the best choices they can every day to help their physical and mental hauora.
Nicky, Bluestone School
The children enjoyed wearing the pedometers and competing against each other to get the most steps. I enjoyed the discussions around healthy eating and sleeping as it fitted in well with work we have done this year about emotional wellbeing.
Dulcie, Blaketown School
The children enjoyed walking, counting steps and discussing healthy eating.
Tania, Katikati Primary School
The tamariki are more aware of their diet. They often showed their 'seedy bread' or other lunchbox items that were healthier.
Mr Smith, Papakowhai School
The program is well thought out and user friendly with lots of information and great tips. Whānau are so impressed by this. Some are going to try hard to get their children to achieve maximum steps. Another has been so thrilled to know finally how many steps their child makes in a day.
Virtual Adventure for Workplaces
Wellbeing at work has never been more important, and this fun event connects remote employee's in a proactive way. Get healthy and help us fund more places for tamariki in the School Virtual Adventure at the same time! Most of your entry fee goes towards more places for schools.
My WellBeings Program
Our mind and body performs incredible things for us every second of every day...without us thinking about it. The "My WellBeings" program engages tamariki (and adults too!) in a fun way to consider the ways they can help their "WellBeings" to do those tasks with health and resilience
