Our school has registered to participate in the 2017 NSW Premier's Sporting Challenge Primary School Sport Challenge.
The purpose of the Challenge is to encourage students to participate in sport, games and physical activity and to have more students, more active, more often!
This term, house captains will be monitoring the physical activity we do during class time, at recess and lunch as well as during sport. What we do outside school hours will also count towards the Challenge award. Our aim is for all of us to average at least 60 minutes a day, every day for ten weeks.
We would especially like to invite all our families to support us in encouraging students' healthy use of leisure time and to experience the joy of being active together.
Each student will be issued with a Challenge log book to record their daily physical activity. Students' individual weekly results contribute to the class tally.
Students completing the Challenge will receive a personalised certificate (Diamond, Gold, Silver or Bronze - based on the class/team average), signed by the Premier of New South Wales.
Physical activity is valued for its physical, social and emotional benefits. It also helps young people to develop communication skills, confidence and resilience while having fun with family and friends.
Remember active kids are smarter kids.
