Taking their cue from the NZ Health Promotion Strategy, ‘Fizz Free February’ the Year 10 Food and Nutrition class taught Horomaka’s Year 8 students about water as the first and best choice for Health and Hauora.

Students from Y10FDN showed promising leadership attributes when they presented slide shows in 2-3’s to four of the Year 8 classes and challenged their younger peers to try a ‘Water only Week’ in March. Year 8’s were encouraged to pick any seven day period in March, and only drink water at both home and school, as a way to look after their health and wellbeing, and be role models for their whānau and peers.
