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.
