Nearly 200 Taranaki pupils have joined forces with New Zealand sports stars Ardie Savea,

Ameliaranne Ekenasio, Kane Williamson, and Samantha Charlton to take part in a fun

and healthy virtual adventure.



Seven Taranaki Schools - Fitzroy School, Merrilands School, Mokau School, St Joseph's

School (Waitara), TKKM o Tamarongo, Waitara East School, and Westown School - are

taking part in the Zespri Young and Healthy Virtual Adventure, aimed to teach pupils

healthy habits.


The health and wellbeing programme takes the pupils on a virtual trip around the globe.

At the same time, they learn healthy habits such as moving their bodies, eating extra fruit

and vegetables, drinking more water, getting a good night's sleep, and reducing leisure

time spent on screens.

Fitzroy School teacher Nina Lobb says 64 pupils from the school are involved in the

challenge.
