Premier’s Active April

February 23, 2016

In April this year we will be encouraging our students and staff to increase their physical activity levels as part of Premier’s Active April. The aim of the initiative is for all Victorians to participate in 30 minutes of physical activity for each day in April, and we would love it if all members of the Strathfieldsaye Primary School community joined us by being extra active during April.

 Regular physical activity provides many benefits including stronger bones and muscles, a healthier heart and lungs, improved self-esteem and reduced anxiety, and improved coordination and concentration.

 We have registered our school as an Active April team and we hope you can all join us by being active and recording your physical activity online during April. By joining our team you will be provided with healthy eating tips and physical activity ideas, as well as numerous incentives and the chance to win great prizes. Our school can also win lots of great prizes if you all participate and record your activities.

 Just go to www.activeapril.vic.gov.au to register and then join our team. Our team name is “Strathfieldsaye PS” and our team ID is strathfieldsaye-ps. There is no cost to participate.
