HOW IT WORKS
What is it?
Tākarokaro is an integrated unit of work that supports ākonga to help get every body in their community active. Tākarokaro learning experiences are designed for ākonga in years 4 through to 8 and are intended to provide them with the skills and knowledge to design their own activities to get people active. Tākarokaro is run out of New Zealand Rugby and is available to schools and kura throughout Aotearoa New Zealand.
What is included?
Tākarokaro includes schools based learning experiences and club based learning experiences. School based experiences help ākonga learn about the importance of participation and design activities to keep every body active. Club based experiences involve seeing how a local rugby club designs their activities as well as being the venue for Tākarokaro festivals.
How to get involved?
Use the register section to let us know that your school or kura wants to get involved. We will then put you in contact with your Provincial Rugby Union so they can connect you to a rugby club. We will also set you up with access to the online gallery for posting the activities that your ākonga design and will provide you with a copy of the Tākarokaro guide for your teachers.
SCHOOL BASED EXPERIENCES
Tākarokaro includes three sets of learning experiences and a challenge to take action. Each set has four learning experiences designed to help ākonga develop the knowledge and skills to design activities to get every body active. Click on the images below to see the topics that are in each set of learning experiences. Register today and we will get you set up to start working on Tākarokaro with your ākonga.
CLUB BASED EXPERIENCES
Tākarokaro provides the opportunity for your ākonga to engage with sport by participating in two club based experiences.
The first involves going to a rugby club to hear from coaches and players about the activities they use and how they go about designing these activities.
The second is a Tākarokaro festival. Held one evening at a local club, each festival engages whānau in the research and activities that ākonga have undertaken and designed, and concludes with kai.
