Be Active These Holidays!

Miss P and all teachers at ACPS are aiming to encourage and promote students and families to stay active and make good healthy choices during the holidays.

The calendar below has lots of short but active tasks you can do on your own, with someone else or as a family. By completing some of these tasks during the break we can be sure that we are continuing to think and act healthy even when we are on holidays! Download a copy of the calendar here: Active Holidays Calendar Term 1

Active prizesAs an added incentive, Miss P even has some prizes for those who bring her their calendar with 8 or more activities ticked off on the first day back next term! You can see some of the possible prizes on the left in the picture. Awesome!

Good luck with being active these holidays – remember to have fun and enjoy the break!

Walk to School Program

This year we are very excited about our new whole school program called Walk to School Program. This program will begin in Term Two and as a whole school community we aim to get as many students and families to participate in our Walk to School Days. Once a month we have allocated a day for everyone to participate.

We have created posters for the school to promote our program, we are very excited about this.

The Grade 2’s took part in a mini video – have a look and see! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=en-bncjTrQY

Aim:

  • To get as many families to walk to and from school safely.
  • To reduce school traffic during peak time.
  • To reinforce the importance of staying active and healthy.

How will the program work?

  • Once a month we will dedicate a day called ‘Walk to School Day’ and we will ask as many families to walk to and from school safely. To collate results, teacher’s will ask students who rode, walked, scooted or skated to school and add on their results onto a whole school google sheet. This could be also done during a numeracy lesson as well.
  • During assembly (for both groups) there will be a ‘Golden Shoe’ (trophy) awarded for the grade with the most participation during our allocated Walk to School Day. The class will keep the ‘Golden Shoe’ until the next Walk to School Day. (RED SHOE and BLUE SHOE)
  • Miss P to present the trophies during assembly.
