Tupu Māia

Girls only health & wellbeing programme for students Year 7-8.

Tupu (grow, foster) Māia – (confidence, bravery, boldness).

Warriors Community Foundation have created a programme for Wāhine Toa, Tupu Māia.

Tupu Māia is specifically targeted at Year 7-8 girls to focus on:

  • confidence
  • participation
  • enjoyment of sport
  • wellbeing
  • keeping physically and mentally active with their peers

Key Measures for Tupu Māia

• Increase confidence in girls playing sport aged 11-12 years of age

• Increase participation in girls aged 11-12 years of age, including links to clubs

• Increase the “fun” element

Our research & consultation has shown us, that there are many reasons for young wāhine to drop out of sport & physicial recreation. Tupu Māia aims to create a positive environment for young women. The programme is underpinned by Te Whare Tapa Whā,
