Truth and Courtesy
An Independent Public School
Inspire to Aspire
The program is designed to offer alternative opportunities for activity and promote and encourage improved health, both physical and mental for students.
Our aim is to offer activities which will engage all students and particularly, the less physically active, or those who are not involved in traditional school sport teams.
The program encourages a whole school approach to health and physical activity.
Success has been achieved in many different ways.
The main one being with the use of our outdoor fitness equipment, which was installed in 2010.
This has been used during lunchtimes and is incorporated into lesson times and after school.
We have also used major sporting competitions to offer similar extra activities at school.
To date more than 50% of our approximately 1,600 students have been involved in extra physical activity outside of their Physical Education lessons.
This initiative has been recognised with Excellence awards for Health and Physical Activity from Australian Council of Health Physical Education and Recreation (ACHPER) in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.
It was also acknowledged in the areas of Dance and Health for 2011.
In 2009 this project was funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing.
Its success and effectiveness since then has been made possible thanks to parent donations via the other Approved Requests component of the Contributions and Charges sheet.
With continued support, new activities and opportunities will continue to be offered.
