Year 1 students from Central Coast Grammar School will be taking home a Family ACTIVation Pack this term, designed to help parents get active with their children by playing quick, easy and fun games that reinforce the fundamental movement skills already being learnt at school.
There are a number of tips, ideas and guides for getting active including putting together an ‘Active Home Entertainment Centre’.
This resource has been developed by Northern Sydney Central Coast Area Health Service and supported by the NSW Department of Education and Training.
Four thousand Family ACTIVation Packs are being distributed to 66 primary schools on the Central Coast during Term 4.
Acting Head of Junior School, Ms Di Paton praised the initiative.
“We hope this pack helps families to get skilled, get active and get healthy,” she said.
