Skate School – Case Study


Thanks to the team at Manaaki Fit – Wellness Riders, Albany Junior High was able to add skate sessions to its official elective curriculum offering in 2018. The purpose of the programme, aimed at young girls aged 11 to 12 years, was to promote wellbeing and self-confidence through board sports. This is the first-time skating has featured in the curriculum and the weekly sessions were attended by an average of 10 girls.
