BBM Tamariki Maia is a program for school-aged children, year 4 and 6 attending Glen Taylor Primary School. This initiative came from Glen Taylor’s project that saw a direct correlation between the lack of regular physical activity, poor food nutrition which had led to a decline in student engagement, attendance, and achievement.
The in-school term program provides a daily session running for 1 hour 40 minutes combined with fitness, food nutrition education and expression of cultural identity through Kapa Haka. Approximately 78 children are currently engaged. There is also a one weekly evening session for learners to attend with their families after school supported by Elstree Family doctors who also refer their patients to the free community Boot camps.
We acknowledge and thank the Auckland Airport for the support of this initiative. Just Move Charitable Health Trusts were recipients of the 12 Days of Christmas Funding that made this project happen.
