It is with great sadness that we acknowledge the passing of Sir Murray Halberg (ONZ).
Sir Murray was one of New Zealand’s greatest and most well-known sportspeople who, through the development and leadership of the Halberg Foundation, dedicated the best part of his life to promoting the inclusion of children with disabilities in sport and active recreation. In 2008 Sir Murray was awarded the Blake Medal, recognising his lifetime of impact for that cause.
We were lucky enough to have the Blake NZ-VR visit Spring Creek School, thanks to their Foundation Partner Westpac NZ AND Richie McCaw came along as a Westpac ambassador!
The learning was based around ‘Threats to the moana’ which covered habitats, marine reserves, food webs, the effects of overfishing, the effects of pollution, and kaitiakitanga/guardianship of our environment.
