TWENTY thousand Kiwi kids are on a virtual adventure around the globe with the Zespri Young and Healthy Virtual Adventure this term, including two classes at Opotiki Primary School.
Encouraged by a star cast of New Zealand’s sporting elite, ASICS ambassadors Ardie Savea, Ameliaranne Ekenasio, Kane Williamson and Samantha Charlton are guiding more than 760 classes to travel (virtually) throughout New Zealand and to countries including Peru, Japan and Italy.
Each student creates their own avatar to represent them on the virtual adventure with their classmates, earning points in the real world for simple healthy habits like moving as much as possible, minimising screen time, drinking plenty of water and eating fruit and vegetables.
