We are looking for the whānau, parents and caregivers of our year 6-7 student leaders. Do you have a young leader in your whānau? This year, Project Wy is looking for the commitment of our student leaders and their whānau to take on this challenge.
We are seeking commitment, that is, an adult from your whānau to join your year 6-8 student leader as their training partner through this entire challenge. Six weeks of Thursday and Saturday early morning training sessions starting Thursday 30 March 2023, a three day school holiday educational programme (we call it an educational bootcamp), a 10 km quarter marathon (featuring the student leader and their family adult training partner) in Rotorua on Saturday 6 May 2023, a fun, fantastic and utterly exhausting 3.5 km mud run again in Rotorua, and a celebration-graduation ceremony at the end of it all. All in aide of supporting our young leaders to realise their strengths, develop confidence, determination, self-worth, wellbeing, leadership, respect, and aspire to their outstanding futures.
You need commitment and transport – all event entry fees and holiday programme costs are funded by the team at Project Wy. Are you up for the challenge?
