Activity 1
Take a picture of yourself participating in a popular New Zealand sport. On your blog tell us the name of the sport and why you have chosen it.

I have chosen Netball because I really enjoy playing this sport. I think it’s a game of teamwork, you need to work together as a team.


  1. Hey Saveu
    In team sport's the most important thing to remember is to work as a team. I really enjoy playing any team game (Even Netball). Keep up the awesome work.

  2. Hi Saveu,

    What a great picture! I also love to play sport and am actually a physical and health teacher so I am especially committed to the idea of playing sports and working together as a team.

    I had never played netball, however, until I moved away from Canada. In Canada, girls play basketball rather than netball so I had no idea what it was until I lived in England and worked as a teacher in a college on the east coast of the country. When I arrived in England I was asked to teach the Year 9 and 10 girls how to play netball in Term 1. Yikes! It was pretty tricky because I had never even heard of the sport and I had to turn around and teach girls how to play it. Fortunately, I had played basketball for years so I was able to pick it up pretty quickly and I really enjoyed it! In fact, I like netball so much I joined a social netball team here in Auckland. Sometimes I still forget that I'm playing netball, though, and try to dribble (bounce) the ball. Oops!

    Hope that you get the chance to play netball again this year!
