The purpose of the Challenge is to encourage students to participate in sport and physical activity to lead a healthy lifestyle.
Over the ten week period of Term 3 our Year 7 and 8 students will be monitoring physical activity levels during class time, at recess and lunch as well as during sport lessons. Physical activity outside school hours will also count towards the Challenge award. The aim is to work towards an average at least 60 minutes of activity a day for ten weeks.
Our school will be working towards an individual student award at the conclusion of the Challenge.
We would like to invite families to support us in encouraging students’ healthy use of leisure time and to experience the joy of being active together.
Students are encouraged to go to https://app.psctracker.com.au/, to aide in recording and monitoring their physical activity levels OR students will be issued with a logbook to record their daily physical activity.
Students completing the Challenge will receive a personalised certificate (Diamond, Gold, Silver or Bronze), signed by the Premier of New South Wales.
Physical activity is valued for its physical, social and emotional benefits. It also helps young people to develop communication skills, confidence and resilience.
