Health Expo have a great day !!!

On Monday the 3rd of August, Tamaki College hosted a group of health representatives during its first ever, Health Expo. Along with group displays on diabetes and environment issues run by Tamaki College students, there were people from the Asthma Society, Family Planning, HELP (Sexual Abuse survivors), Smokefree and Odyssey House. The Heart Foundation provided interesting displays on fat and sugar levels in commonly eaten foods and alcohol issues were covered by Al-Anon and Community Drug & Alcohol Services. Information on mental health was provided by the Kari Centre.

Throughout the day, students were able to get information from all of the organisations and increase their knowledge around keeping a healthy body and mind. The day was very successful and our nurses Tania and Chris did a great job in organising the expo.

  3. Sounds like an informative and fun day and great that you could capture it with a photo diary like that. I must say the the fat suit gets me every time though....

  4. A health idea was obviously a great one. I think that there are many needs in a community that can be addressed. In Waikato we are very happy to be celebrating Waikato's big win in the Air New Zealand Cup, I know your students might be sad that Auckland haven't had a win yet but keep trying it might happen someday.
