All five secondary schools and their sports leaders received training in the Māori sport of Ki-ō-Rahi.

The Kaiwhakahaere from He Oranga Poutama deliver all sessions to teach the sports leaders the myth behind the sport and how to play. KingsWay School involved their Primary School sports leaders in learning how to play Ki-ō-Rahi. The senior sports leaders also incorporated what they had learnt at their ‘Captains and Vice Captains’ evening and taught these students to play Ki-ō-Rahi.

KingsWay School and Long Bay College student sports leaders delivered an additional session to students during the inaugural ‘Harbour Sports Week’ in week 8, term 2. Orewa College and Wentworth College have scheduled additional sessions in term 3 to coincide with their PE programme. Wentworth College and Whangaparaoa College have planned for an inter class/house competition in term 3.

The Ki-ō-Rahi equipment was well-received from all schools and will enable their sports leaders to continue delivering Ki-ō-Rahi in years to come.

A special thanks to Hibiscus And Bays Local Board for the funding to do this project.
