Activating Communities through Active Schools


author:Sparc

Activating Communities through Active Schools is an introduction and guide for organisations, clubs, parents and volunteers supporting Active Schools.

Active Schools is all about encouraging New Zealand children to choose and enjoy physical activity. In every community and region, the more that schools, organisations and clubs work together to achieve this goal, the more our nation?s children will benefit. As a club or organisation (or as a parent or volunteer) you can play an important role in supporting Active Schools. There are significant benefits.

It?s a win all round:

  1. for the children,
  2. for your organisation or club,
  3. for the whole school community,
  4. for your own skill-learning and involvement in activity ? and ultimately for the next generation of New Zealanders.

This resource presents the thinking behind Active Schools, and offers you a guide to the successful implementation of an Active School community. You?ll find proven strategies and ideas to support involvement through a whole school community approach.
