Sharing what we do for wellbeing

The Pause Breathe Smile Hauora Competition celebrates the activities tamariki and kaiako undertake to support wellbeing within their classrooms. Such great work is being created every day in schools throughout Aotearoa.  This competition aims to share, inspire, promote and reward the mind health initiatives educators are developing with their students to foster a positive classroom environment and set kids up for a healthy future.
