Why Live Life Well @ School?
We believe all students should be supported to get the best possible start to life.
Primary school is an important time period for children to establish healthy behaviours that will allow them to flourish. Engaging in positive health behaviours from a young age can improve academic performance, classroom behaviour, mental health and prevent long term chronic health problems (such as obesity, heart disease and some cancers).
What is Live Life Well @ School?
Live Life Well @ School is a collaborative initiative between NSW Ministry of Health and the school sectors in NSW. The program aims to:
- get more students more active, more often
