Play.sport in action

Using the Play.sport approach, this Fergusson Intermediate PE lesson on long jump combines the maximum amount of physical activity while connecting children’s learning to other areas such as the maths curriculum. 

Through Play.sport Fergusson Intermediate has partnered with Kokiri Marae to introduce Ki-o-Rahi as an extra-curricular (voluntary) activity during lunchtime, or before or after school.
