|Our Year 7 & 8's with Tamaki College Year12 P.E students on Friday afternoons, March 2015|
The project also aims to improve the delivery of PE and sports programmes in the surrounding primary schools, and to engage community organisations, such as clubs, also in supporting teachers and students involved in sport in schools. (SiE May 2014 from the Sport NZ website)
I recently met the Sports Coordinator at our local high school, Tamaki College, who had experienced how this worked in his previous high school in South Auckland. Along with the Head of the P.E department, we discussed ways on how we could support one another and to strengthen our intermediate to high school link. I believe that this will mutually benefit students from both schools as another way to improve our academic results.
