Registered for sporting challenge
Woy Woy Public School has registered all of its classes for the Premier's Sporting Challenge which will run for 10 weeks over the school term.
"The Premier's Sporting Challenge provides an opportunity for our students to log time spent in a range of sports, movement and recreational activities during lunchtimes, school sport programs, class time, after school or weekend physical activity," said principal Ms Ona Buckley.
Students who complete the Challenge receive an individual, personalised certificate from the Premier of New South Wales.
"Sport is valued and an accepted part of our school's curriculum because it contributes to the development of the whole child.
"It provides a vehicle for social, physical, emotional and moral learning and is an important expression of our culture.
"Participation in sport and physical activity is generally promoted for its positive impact on children's physical and mental wellbeing.
"Both formal and informal sport arrangements help young people to communicate, develop resilience and interact with others in a fun environment."
The Challenge aimed to engage young people in sport and physical activity and encourages them to lead healthy, active lifestyles, she said.
