Voice of Rangatahi Leadership Event by Frankie Vella

Voice of Rangatahi Leadership Event

On Monday 27th June, 20 Logan Park High School students travelled to Berwick Camp to participate in the Sport Otago Voice of Rangatahi Leadership event focusing on Physical recreation.

Our students are in Years 11 and 12. They are all involved in sports and leadership within our kura and community.

Over two days around 80 students attended the event. The programme was made up of physical group activities and korero/talking time.

Ki o Rahi, a traditional Maori game, was a hit with students. They enjoyed the challenge of learning the game and finished with a tournament. Many happy faces showed how much fun it was. Logan Park students will bring Ki o Rahi back to our school to play as part of our Friday students-led lunchtime activities.

Students participated in other physical team building exercises including golf - hitting a target, frisbee golf and playing on the confidence course.

Another stand-out was an event planning workshop in the afternoon. Two students said coming together to learn all about planning and organising an event was a highlight. Students left the Leadership event, enthusiastic and inspired to continue meeting and planning more fun, inclusive events at Logan Park in the future.
