Children at Katikati Primary School were super-surprised when given a new pair of Asics sports shoes, to launch Zespri’s nationwide health and wellbeing initiative. Fifty pupils at the primary school will join 20,000 tamariki participating in the 2021 Zespri Young and Healthy Virtual Adventure.
Chiefs/Bay of Plenty Steamers rugby player Naitoa Ah Kuoi led Monday’s activities as the pupils tested out their new shoes. Zespri’s Young and Healthy Virtual Adventure provides children in primary and intermediate schools an opportunity to discover the world virtually and embrace healthier lifestyles — even if they can’t get to school in person.
