Team Aroha 5: Yippy! It is FMS time with Counties Manukau Sports!

Looking after our Tinana 

Kia ora koutou katoa, this week being the first time for Aroha 5 participating in a fundamental movement skills programme driven by Counties Manukau Sports. In support of developing children's confidence and skills through engaging in a range of sports, games and recreation. Today was all about balancing. We sure had fun learning alongside each other such as hopping on one leg,  balancing an object on our heads, following simple instructions and working as a team.  Can't wait for more physical health sessions. We shall see you again next week CMS.
 Thank you for your tautoko. 
Well done Aroha 5!!! Ka Rawe tamariki ma so proud of you all..
