  FUN WAY FOR CHILDREN TO LEARN ABOUT HEALTH
(11-03-2013)

In 2012 a total of 36 Pacific Early Childhood Education Centre’s (ECECs) participated in the two days event organized by Health Star Pacific (HSPT) as part of the annual New Zealand Well Child Week.

The event had 854 people participating including parents and teachers of the thirteen ECECs from Central and West Auckland, and twenty ECECs from South Auckland.

According to Letele Tiseli of HSPT, “The Well Child Week event is an opportunity to promote health messages to children and their parents in a fun way.”

The ECECs were tasked to create a poster on one of the topics in the Wellchild Tamariki Ora Health Book which was presented on the day as well as performing a song or poem based on the Well Child Week theme

“The scene inside the hall with mats, names, fruits, children, parents and smiling faces of Health Star Pacific staff made this event enjoyable,” said an excited parent.

“We enjoyed the enthusiasm of the children and the commitment of all those involved in the ECEC’s.”

A highlight was the number of posters and the wealth of information that was shared from water and sun safety to Immunisation, health checks to breastfeeding.

One ECEC teacher said, “We learnt a lot of interesting health facts on the day“.

Health Star Pacific acknowledges all the participants and those who were involved in the planning, delivery of this event and look forward to doing it again in 2013.
