Stengthening the wellbeing of tamariki through physical activity
HEALTHY ACTIVE LEARNING
Following on from the Made to Move pilot which began in Invercargill and Bluff primary schools in 2019, the Government’s Wellbeing Budget provided investment for Healthy Active Learning, a joint national initiative between Sport New Zealand (delivered locally by Active Southland) and the Ministries of Health and Education.
Healthy Active Learning is working in 21 schools and with their communities across Gore and Districts.
Active Southland works alongside schools, kura and their communities to:
Support their understanding of the value of the Health and Physical Education Curriculum
Support their understanding of the value of play, active recreation and sport
Support teachers and kaiako to be confident and capable in delivering the Health and Physical Education Curriculum
Strengthen their connections with the wider community, including whanau and local health and physical activity providers
Support well-informed decision making when using external providers within the education setting
Support the creation of healthy food and drink environments
