National Health & Physical Education Day - Wednesday 1st September
This year’s theme is ‘Good for Children, Good for Schools and Good for Communities’.
With National Health and Physical Education Day just under a month away, have you thought about how you are going to promote Health and Physical Education (HPE) at your school?
At Stay Active we strive to educate children to develop healthy habits from a young age and encourage a lifelong passion for sport and physical activity. Health and Physical Education Day is a national initiative aimed at raising awareness for a greater focus on Health and Physical Education in schools. Health and Physical Education is an important learning area where students will develop skills, knowledge and understanding about social and emotional concepts, and movement skills that will allow them to participate in lifelong physical activity.
The importance of Health and PE.
Health and Physical Education provides opportunities for students to develop interpersonal, collaborative, communication, and decision-making skills, to encourage healthy habits. The Health and Physical Education curriculum provides students with ongoing explicit learning about the importance of health, wellbeing and movement in daily life that will then enable young people to live healthy and active adult lives.
