A class of Whanganui schoolkids has been rewarded with new shoes for excelling in a nationwide programme promoting the importance of healthy living and exercise to children.
Class 5 from Kaitoke School has been participating in Zespri's Young and Healthy Virtual Adventure for the past five weeks.
The initiative was created to encourage schoolchildren and their families to eat better, exercise more and lead more environmentally conscious lives. Each student created their own unique 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.
