Takitimu: Rangatahi in Sports

Te Puni Kōkiri supported He Oranga Poutama through Sport Hawke’s Bay to increase the participation rates and leadership of rangatahi in sports and physical activity. Rangatahi that have shown potential in sports, academia or te ao Māori have been selected to participate in a year-long programme, Wā Tika Nā Rōpū, operating at Flaxmere Primary School in Hastings and Maraenui School in Napier. The programme contains weekly activities including training sessions with sportspeople, cultural events and education about traditional Māori sports.
