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.
On your bike! 2019 bike hire registrations are up and filling fast. The Ride to Walk to School and It's Your Move Safe Cycle programs are designed to engage students in active travel and healthy lifestyle choices. The program and bikes are FREE and include online teaching resources for both teacher students.
We were very excited to present St Vincent's Primary School Aranda with the first Safe Routes to School Map yesterday afternoon. These maps will be given out to all schools currently on the Ride or Walk to School program at the start of the 2019 school year.
The maps were developed by Transport Canberra and show how students can actively travel to school safely from their homes or the designated Part way drop off points.
O how we love lunching, sipping a coffee, shopping & all that is the experience of enjoying time at our fabulous sponsor Fyshwick Fresh Food Market PS When you see kids getting active & munching on fresh fruit at our school events, it's thanks to FFFM!
It was nothing but smiles at last Thursday's Family Engagement Workshop at Macquarie Primary School. Families from the school were invited to come along to the workshop to learn how parents and their children can ride safely to school together. It was a hands on workshop where both parents and their children hopped on their bikes and participated in fun bike activities.
A big thank you to Faith Bentley and Macquarie Primary for holding the event, Stu from Trek Bicycle Canberra for educating parents on bike sizing and maintenance, Fyshwick Fresh Food Market and Wiffens - Premium Green Grocers for providing a healthy snack for all the workshop participants.
