Skills4Life

Sport Taranaki offers the Skills4Life programme which delivers fully inclusive fundamental movement skills and game sense sessions across Taranaki schools. The programme aims to sustainably integrate Skills4Life as part of schools’ health and physical education curriculum, with a focus on professional development for teachers including term planning sessions for PE, alongside modified and wet-weather game ideas.

• Contact time with a Skills4Life coach or facilitator across all four terms
• Planning and delivery support for the revitalisation of school sport events
• Personal learning development and/or planning support for teachers with Sport, Health and Physical Education and/or Physical Activity during curriculum time or during lunch/after school time
• Supporting Principals and Board of Trustees to develop plans
• Modelling of fundamental movement skills or game sense sessions with class and classroom teacher
• Planning and coordination support for school sport including upskilling of parent coaches or the coordination of different sports codes entering school
