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 had a great morning down at Kambah Playing Fields with St Thomas the Apostle, Namadgi and Taylor Primary Schools! It was great to see so many students, teachers, parents and carers braving the cold to attend our Winter Walk to School Week Event! Thank you to all the VIP's who attended including Joy Burch MLA Rachel Tallent University of Canberra Capitals Brumbies Rugby and Icon Water and thank you to ShotClock Espresso for supplying the warm drinks and Fyshwick Fresh Food Market for supplying everyone with fresh fruit. Stay tuned for more photos and some awesome drone footage!
Winter Walk to School Week starts today! Keep an eye out for tips and tricks across the week and most importantly, get moving! Try and walk to school every day this week and if it is too far to walk, part way is ok!
Hi everyone, don't forget that next week is Winter Walk to School Week! Encourage your family, children or students to engage in active travel on the way to school. It's a great way to help you meet the minimum requirement of 60 minutes of physical activity per day.
Also, if your school is a member of the Ride or Walk to School Program, don't forget to submit the three best competition posters (Below) from your school, to the Ride or Walk to School Google Community for your chance to win!
