A pou sharing the thoughts of Te Atatu Intermediate School students about gambling in their communities will be on display in Mangere today as part of an event to mark Gamble Harm Awareness week.

Project leader Brooke Stilwell intends to facilitate the development of a partner pou by the Mangere community.

She says Te Atatu tamariki saw pokies as massive colourful, cool, awesome, fun looking machines that older people put money in and win.

She wants to create a space where whanau could discuss gambling harm and prevent tamariki and rangatahi from developing problems down the track.

More than a third of those seeking support for problem gambling are Maori.

Ms Stillwell will facilitate the development of a partner pou by the Mangere community.

The Mangere Whanau Fun Day was organised by Maori public health advocacy service Hapai Te Hauora, South Seas Healthcare, and the Salvation Army and was held at Mangere Town Centre.
