The Forward Foundation offers a group of wahine at Te Aratai College an opportunity to be active without having to be in a sports team.
Every Thursday after school, a group of young wahine head out to be involved in physical activity run by the Forward Foundation. This is a new programme being offered at Te Aratai College this term. Working together with the Deans and the Guidance team we have formed a group of amazing young wahine who are keen to participate and take on the challenge of getting out of their comfort zone and meeting new people.
All of the activities are funded by the Forward Foundation and free for our students to participate in. Week 1 of the programme saw us heading down to Linwood Park to learn or further our skills in Skateboarding. Week 2 we headed to Clip n Climb where we had the place to ourselves to scale great heights. We look forward to the next two weeks when we are going to tackle some Orienteering and Mountain biking.
