Project Move

Only 35% of children aged 5-17 get the minimum daily requirements of 60 minutes of activity.

(ParticipAction report 2018)

Children need the minimum of 60 minutes of activity for their health, behaviour and cognitive development. With today’s lifestyle and the pull of technology, it is not enough to just tell kids, they need to BE INSPIRED to want to be active and stay active!

Project move helps schools find innovative ways to integrate more activity in to the day and opportunities to influence their children to be healthy.

• We observe the school and provide suggestions • We organize Movement Day or Week to help implement the initiative • Project Move team co-ordinates with no extra administrative work for teachers.

Activities for movement week can include:

  1. Active acting
  2. Aerobics
  3. Animated Art
  4. Classroom activity breaks
  5. Dynamic dance
  6. FUNdamental fitness
  7. Interactive presentation on health
  8. Movement, Music and the Mind
  9. Playground leader training
  10. Playground soccer referee training

iSaute are proud supporters of Project Move and huge advocates for getting children, and their families moving!

“Project Move, coming to a school near you” – August 2018

Project Move was recently featured on Breakfast Television. “With today’s lifestyle and pull of technology, it isn’t enough to tell kids to be more active. If you want change in your child’s life, this is where ‘Project Move’ comes in.”
SO LET’S GET MOVING FOR 60 MINUTES A DAY!
The early years provide a critical window for creating a lifelong commitment to physical activity.
