Good for Kids Good for Life Program

Our school is participating in Hunter New England Health's Good for Kids. Good for Life program which has been working with schools in our region for more than a decade to implement healthy eating and physical activity programs. As part of the program Good for Kids are currently measuring the activity levels of students in Year 2 and Year 3. For parents of children in Year 2 and Year 3 you will have received an information statement asking your permission for your child to participate, which will involve them wearing an accelerometer each day while at school for one school week. An accelerometer is worn on the wrist and looks like a watch but captures activity levels.

Once data is collected schools will be randomly selected to receive support, either now or in 12 months' time, to assist schools with the scheduling of physical activity. This will include the provision of professional development for our staff as well as the provision of resources and on-going support from the Good for Kids team. Please contact Mrs South or Mr Casserly if you have any questions regarding this program. If you could return the form by Friday 1st December that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your support.
