Wiremu Sarich is a Youth Educator working at Te Oranga for Te Runanga o Te Rarawa in Kaitaia. Wiremu has been utilizing Nga Taonga Takaro (traditional Maori games/past times) to promote healthy activity in schools throughout Muriwhenua from North Hokianga to Te Kao. For the past few years, Wiremu has been developing a new initiative which draws on the same principals and pedagogies inherent in Nga Taonga Takaro he calls "Ako" (to learn, to teach or instruct).
