[Brendon McDermott speaking]

We are super excited about the opportunity for to come to Southland. We could take a locally lead approach and actually work with and design the initiative with schools and the community. The partnership approach has been essential to the model here in Southland. The Invercargill Licensing Trust and Community Trust South - they get what this is about.

[Julian Ineson speaking]

We think it's going to have a huge impact on our kids. Their resilience, how to work effectively as a team member, how to communicate effectively, and just having self-confidence in themselves. 

[Sonya Carey speaking]

We see incorporating physical activity into the everyday learning of our kids is really empowering. (Speaking to child) “It's great to see you, you still having fun? Yeah, good, good!” 

[Mike Mika speaking]

I think the whole program of physical activity leads onto other areas of wellness, especially for kids and as they get older.

[Margot Hishon]

The communities for years to come will benefit from children today being active and healthy and living a great lifestyle.
