In their primary years, children start to make choices about what they eat and how much they exercise. Live Life Well @ School, PDHPE Network sessions, healthy canteens and healthy OOSH give educators the tools to ensure those choices set them on the right path.
Live Life Well @ School
The LLW@S program trains and supports teachers to create a school culture where children can be active and eat well. This takes a whole of school approach, through classroom learning, school policy and connecting with families.
- PDHPE Network
The Western Sydney PDHPE Network is open to teachers from all schools teaching the K-6 syllabus in the local government areas of Blacktown, Cumberland, Parramatta and The Hills. Each term the PDHPE Network offers a 1.5 hour training session for teachers.
STAR (Support, Training, Action, Results) Canteen works in partnership with schools and canteen operators to foster a healthy food and drink culture within schools whilst minimising impact on profit.
Live Life Well @ School have a range of resources to help embed LLW@S into your school, including Crunch & Sip® information, practical ideas for fundamental movement skills, ideas to keep kids moving and a range of resources to share with your families.
Crunch & Sip®
Crunch&Sip® gives kids the chance to refuel on fruit, vegetables and water during a set break in class. It’s a simple way to help them stay hydrated and energised, and it lifts their focus in class.
Two western Sydney secondary schools and one primary school are taking part in a pilot which aims to increase the number of students actively commuting to and from school. With benefits extending beyond health and into the classroom, the Department of Education, Parramatta Council, Blacktown Council and Population Health will support students to develop and implement an active travel plan.
