Maori Youth and the Influence of Traditional Sports and Games on Soft Skill Development
We are delighted to support Gareth Archer’s project in which the Māori ball game, Ki-O-Rahi, will provide the medium to explore the links between the learning about and playing of traditional Māori sports and games and development of communication, leadership, cultural identity/pride, self-esteem, problem solving and teamwork skills amongst Māori Youth. Gareth will be working with students from Community Colleges New Zealand Ltd.
Funding this project provides the opportunity for the southern hub to support an emerging researcher in the PTE sector. An output of this project will be an article/report based on Gareth’s experiences as a first-time researcher.
