The Hin4H staff attended a Team Up workshop for 4 days alongside the other 5 Sport 4 Development program staff looking at objectives, planning, communications, and reporting. OHF followed this workshop with a formal induction of the new staff using the learnings from the Hook in4 Health  programs operating in PNG and Vanuatu. The focus  for the last day was on practical delivery where they had fun running sessions for their collagues  and then constructively giving feedback.

The team is excitedly delivering to their first school - White River High School this week.
