Sport Waikato's Taakaro Ora team recently held a professional learning day for Health & Physical Education lead teachers of Te Pae Here Kaahui Ako Community of Learning (CoL). The CoL is a collective of schools within a designated area – Te Pae Here is located in north Hamilton.
 
The aim of the day was to empower and inspire teachers to think differently about how movement looks and feels within their class, to unpack the learning opportunities that come through being physically active and how they can integrate physical activity into broader learning outcomes.
 
These teachers will take the learnings from this workshop back to their schools and work together with the wider school to implement these tools into their own context, taking a whole-school systems approach to reshaping the way physical education is delivered in a primary school setting. 
 
In this new model, we now deliver far more strategically through our 1:10:1000 model.
 



Through building teacher confidence and finding fun and interesting ways to integrate activity into learning opportunities, it's really exciting to see our new direction in action. This is how we get more of our tamariki moving more often throughout their day.
 
Backed by an excellent team of skilled and knowledgeable staff, we are leading the way to 75% of the Waikato region active by 2030.
