New Zealand’s Healthiest Schools Challenge will kick off in Term 4 this year and is limited to 50,000 kids countrywide. The free programme is sponsored by AIA and Sovereign.

Participating classes will receive free pedometers and the chance to win:

  • A share of $50,000 worth of AIA and Sovereign sports grants for their school
  • School visits from sports legends Cory Jane and Gemma McCaw
  • Coaching clinics with two Tottenham Hotspur International Development coaches
  • Five trips to an exclusive skills session in Sydney with a world-famous soccer star
  • And many other prizes!

Once a class is accepted to participate and the students are registered, kids log in and create themselves an avatar. They use their free pedometers to record their daily step totals to move their avatars from place to place around the Challenge’s virtual world. At each global destination, they see their avatars exploring alongside our animated sporting stars Gemma McCaw and Cory Jane.
