Sport and ca­reer stud­ies

Central Leader - - EDUCATION& TRAINING -

The New Zealand In­sti­tute of Sport (NZIS) is ed­u­cat­ing and grow­ing cham­pi­ons with its high qual­ity youth, in­dus­try, and ter­tiary pro­grammes, sup­port­ing learn­ers and ath­letes with their goals in the sports, fit­ness and recre­ation in­dus­try.

NZIS is lo­cated in Green­lane and at the Pa­p­a­toe­toe Sports Cen­tre.

One stu­dent who has em­braced all that NZIS has to of­fer to sup­port her sport­ing and ca­reer as­pi­ra­tions is Marama Davis. Marama is an in­spi­ra­tional 18 year old who has achieved a great deal at a young age and still has great am­bi­tion for her fu­ture, both in sport­ing and her ca­reer.

She was a suc­cess­ful Youth Guar­an­tee foun­da­tion stu­dent at NZIS last year com­plet­ing her Cer­tifi­cate in Sports Stud­ies Level 3 Pro­gramme, while her busy sport­ing sched­ule had her par­tic­i­pate in the NZ Maori Women’s Rugby Team in Rome.

She was fur­ther se­lected to travel to Dubai late last year as a mem­ber of the NZ Women’s Sev­ens Team, which she says was an en­rich­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and proud moment for her fam­ily, friends and NZIS.

In re­cent times Marama has also played for the NZ Open Women’s Touch Team in a se­ries against Aus­tralia and rep­re­sented var­i­ous age grade re­gional teams as a Coun­ties Manukau rep­re­sen­ta­tive for touch and a rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the Auck­land Storm Women’s Rugby Team that won the NPC women’s fi­nals last year.

Not only did Marama grad­u­ate from her course last year but she also re­ceived sev­eral sport­ing awards for her re­gional and na­tional rep­re­sen­ta­tive hon­ours and was awarded the NZIS Sports Woman of the Year.

She is work­ing hard to seek se­lec­tion into the NZ Women’s Sev­ens Team for the Olympics in Rio 2016, but also hopes to have a ca­reer in the sport, fit­ness, and recre­ation in­dus­try, hence her de­ci­sion to con­tinue study­ing at NZIS.
