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 vir- tual 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 Vir- tual 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 reduc- ing leisure time spent on screens.
