Mums the word

The fittest man in Waipareira Delane Mackie is keeping mum.

Not because he hasn’t got a lot to say but because the lunchtime fitness classes he runs targeting mums and their babies is taking off

Delane has spent a lot of energy on getting the mums (it’s also open to males) along and has a core crew of 10 who front on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

“We know mums didn’t have a lot of spare time for themselves, so devised a time schedule, where they could bring baby in a pram or stroller and still get a work out for themselves,” Delane said.

The main Waipareira classes for the community run from 5.30pm on Monday and Wednesday, but Delane said he saw the need for a lunchtime programme.


A great break for the holidays

The Holiday programme was another success for the rangatahi who took part, their parents and for Waipareira.

Over 150 rangatahi participated in the two week programme held at Ranui Primary school. This initiative runs during the Christmas period and again in term 1 of the school holidays. We then take a break for the remainder of the year and restart it up toward Christmas time. Activities include off site excursions such as fun packed activities at Carey Park in Henderson Valley and Paint Ball competitions.

Activities are coordinated from the base school of Ranui as well as off site. The objective of every activity is to ensure it is interactive, fun and action packed so everyone is able to fully participate regardless of their age or background.
