Girls Fun Festival

200 female Yr 10 Girls from a host of South Auckland schools get to participate in an action packed day of Sports and Active recreation. The Annual Girls Fun Festival is scheduled for Wednesday 29th November at the Manukau Sports bowl. The event is funded by CLM Community Sport (Tumanawa Fund) as well as proceeds from the Manatū Wāhine – Physical Activity and Wellbeing Fund.

Specifically the event is aimed at those Wahine that don’t get the chance to attend sports events, and also involves trying their hand at some “Different” types of Sports; including Kickball, Ki O Rahi, Skateboarding, Hip Hip, Yoga, Turbo Touch, Pickle Ball as well as the conventional types Futsal, Basketball, Volleyball, Cricket to name a few.

Mass Sports Trust is responsible for the planning and implementation of the event, alongside the experience CLM Community Sports teams of Judith Coe, Maia Lewi and Kelly Dixon-Tuihalangingie.

A group of 10-20 girls’ from each school will spend 20 minutes at each activity / station where an experienced co-ordinator will teach them the basics in a fun and non-competitive environment.

Throw in some Music, some coffee for the hardworking teachers and staff, a sausage sizzle for all the Girls and you have the makings of a great day out, which hopefully is the start of many more for these girls.
