The WYNRS Life Skills Programme is a programme that uses football (soccer) as a medium to teach children life skills and life values. The programme’s approach encompasses all aspects of the children’s physical, emotional, cognitive, social and spiritual development. This holistic approach recognizes that all aspects of a child’s development are interdependent and of equal importance. The stages of the children’s development are also catered for and when needed, individual attention is also given.
The Life Skills Programme is currently running in 4 schools in the South Auckland at the moment- Rongomai Primary, Dawson Road Primary, Mangere Bridge Primary and Warerlea Primary School. Through the medium of sport, which plays an integral part in New Zealand and specifically South Auckland society, the children grasp concepts, examples, teaching points and values practically and quickly (as observed by teachers).
