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.
