To improve rangatahi wellbeing
A new project between regional agencies and Sport New Zealand Ihi Aotearoa supporting secondary schools and wharekura to provide quality active recreation and sport opportunities.
Forty secondary schools and wharekura will be supported to design and implement their own physical activity initiatives through to December 2026.
What are the aims?
- To enhance the wellbeing of rangatahi through physical activity
- To increase the physical activity levels of rangatahi, particularly those that are less active
- To demonstrate the value of physical activity to educational priorities
Why is this relevant to education?
The success of past and existing initiatives in schools has highlighted the value of physical activity to education.
Active As will align to and further complement wider Sport NZ programmes and initiatives supporting schools and kura, including Healthy Active Learning.
