This is the home base of the Physical Activity Foundation, an Australian health promotion charity with the goal of reducing the impact of sedentary lifestyle diseases in children by teaching them healthy lifestyle habits through the delivery of large scale school and community based intervention programs.
Here we share all our experiences about the hosting of our suite of programs - the Active Kids Challenge, the MOVE IT MOVChallenge profiling the product MOVband, Ride or Walk to School program and the Fruit and Vege pledge.
We love a good infographic & we really love this infographic from the Australian Health Promotion Association that reminds us that every $1 invested in health promotion can save over $5 in health spending! #TogetherWeCanMoveaGeneration
Kids need at least 60mins of quality physical activity every day - the short & long term health, social & emotional benefits are proven - who doesn't want the best for kids?! #TogetherWeCanMoveaGenerationwww.paf.org.au
Sport and recreation organisations are learning to align programs up with the Australian Curriculum, to ensure primary school teachers are confident in delivering quality physical education.
Statistics show not enough kids are meeting daily exercise requirements.
A very fun morning with all of the PE Pulse Organisations hearing from Associate Professor Shane Pill, president of ACHPER and physical education researcher about how sports can benefit from aligning their programs to the Australian HPE Curriculu
Today PE Pulse facilitated a workshop for our PE Pulse organisations! Local State Sports Organisation and recreation groups all joined together to learn about how their programs can feed into the Australian Curriculum, and how they can use the AC to map their program against the learning standards outlined. Win-win for teachers and sports we think!! A very big thank you to ACHPER President Assoc Professor Shane Pill for sharing his knowledge with the group!
Lots of fabulous events this week as part of Jean Hailes Women's Health Week. These events are great for teachers, parents and students who need some ideas about how to make cycling part of their everyday: from getting to know your bike, planing routes, panel discussions and social rides. Women are the most influential role models to the children...Ride Sally Ride...
