Reminder: EOI's now open for whole of school physical literacy TransformUs Program - valued up to $3000.
TransformUs Available now
We are offering Move Well Eat Well schools the opportunity to participate in the TransformUs pilot project in Tasmania free to your school(s).TransformUs provides schools and teachers with online training and resources to help students move more and sit less in the classroom. TransformUs involves providing a supportive physical activity environment and incorporating movement into everyday class lessons – the delivery of the lesson changes, not the content. This program has been used in Victorian schools for more than 12 years to support students to be more active, and so far has reached more than 904 teachers and 376 schools in Victoria.
Once you have registered, gained permission from your Principal and been accepted into the trial, your school will receive a support package worth up to $3,000 which can be used in program implementation. For example, funds can be used to purchase physical activity equipment for classrooms, standing desks and/or playground line markings. During this pilot we will be working with partners at the Menzies Institute for Medical Research to gather information on your thoughts about the program. We know your time is valuable and will be keeping this to a minimum. You can choose not to participate in the research, and it will not affect your place in the trail.
For further information contact Rebekah Harrison email@example.com
