Have A Go Day At Maungaraki School
We couldn't wait to revisit the kids at Maungaraki school for some more fun and despite the rain we had an amazing time. We had the pleasure of being joined by Shaka Sola of SolaPower Throwing Academy who is a professional coach in the athletics throwing disciplines and a former competitor on the biggest stages for Samoa, including the World Championships and the Commonwealth Games. We also had a Floorball coach and Floorball equipment for the kids to try and it is not hard to see why this is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world right now.
The kids got to grips with Shaka's warm-ups before getting into the action having a throw of the discuss, the shot-put, the javelin and even getting to see the hammer in action. Dean was putting them through their paces in the gym with some floorball drills before finishing with a game. We had rave reviews and I have been assured that it was much more fun than being in Maths and Geography!
