Childhood Obesity Plan –Local Engagement Event
19 March from 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
‘Achieving 60 active minutes for every child’ – Delivering 30 active minutes in school and influencing 30 active minutes beyond school every day.
Each SGO area is requested by the Department of Health to deliver a local engagement event to increase awareness and understanding of the 60 active minutes ambition and the role of schools in achieving 30 active minutes for every child every day.
The local engagement event will support schools to increase physical activity throughout the school day to boost health and academic achievement for their students. It looks at how schools can:
• meet the requirements of the government’s childhood obesity plan
• develop their understanding of the evidence and research underpinning active approaches in schools
• learn how to use the free Active School Planner to increase daily activity and reduce sitting time for every child
• explore solutions to boost wellbeing and achievement by building 30 active minutes of physical activity into the whole school day and influencing 30 active minutes beyond the school day.
