Background: A large number of school children between the ages of eleven (11) years old to eighteen (18) years old become inactive when moving from primary and intermediate schools to secondary school and onwards.  Unfortunately, there is no known data in Porirua to support this but national and regional data from national and regional sporting bodies, as well as the Ministry of Education suggests that many young people become less-active in sport or recreation when they reach these ages in their lives.

The Porirua Student Sport Transitions Project aims to increase sport and recreation participation by students at Primary,IntermediateSchoolsand Secondary School and including school leavers. This is new ground for Porirua City and it will need working closely with other stakeholders who’ll benefit from this project like Hoe Tonga’s Porirua based waka ama clubs and the regional body.
