  • 3. Removing food from canteen
    • Our vision is to give the school canteen a makeover
      • Removing all food high in fat and sugar, replacing them with new and exciting healthy options.
      • We will also attempt to make it affordable and accessible.
  • 4. Peer supporters
    • In order to encourage leadership and responsibility among the older students of the school:
      • Older senior students will form a group called the "Healthy Heroes”. These students will be selected for being good role models, and will be encouraged to model healthy behaviours themselves.
      • The “Healthy Heroes” will encourage the other children to eat healthy foods.
      • Each week, they will select several students that they think have been setting a good example of healthy eating, or are making a conscious effort to improve their eating and exercise habits.
      • During assemblies, the “Healthy Heroes” will award these students with a certificate and a badge that they are allowed to wear with their school uniform, encouraging others to follow their good example.
  • 5. Homework
    • Homework tasks such worksheets, reading assignments, research, and speeches will be set on topics around healthy eating and healthy lifestyles.
    • Each child will also be expected to keep a food log at the beginning of each term to keep track of what they are eating. This can be analysed in class as part of class work during the year.
    • They will be required to set goals to improving their eating habits and parents will be notified about these goals for extra encouragement.
  • 6. Parent workshops
    • One night a week through out the school year, we will run a parent workshop for that wish to learn more about the food and environment they are providing for their families.
    • This will include:
      • Healthier meal ideas and practical classes
      • Ways in which the family can exercise together
      • Ways in which families can work together for a healthier future
  • 7. Kids cooking classes
    • After school, we will offer cooking classes for children.
      • They will learn how to cook and bake healthier options to make at home with their family
      • We will attempt to provide the children with the ability and knowledge to create healthy meals with their families.
      • These classes will also be fun and educational, so the children also learn about why we need to eat healthy options.
      • The children will be able to take recipes home to try with their families.
  • 8. Breakfast options
    • Children who have had no breakfast at home will be able to come to the school office, where they can be provided with some healthy breakfast options.
    • This service is only for children who do not eat breakfast at home, as a last resort to keep them going through out the day.
    • The children will be taught about the importance of eating breakfast, and a notice sent home to their parents requesting that they are given breakfast prior to coming to school.
  • 9. 30 minutes activity per day
    • According to the SPARC Physical Activity guidelines for children and young people (5-18 years), and in line with SPARC’s “Push Play” campaign, every day children should:
    • “ throughout each day, do 60 minutes or more of moderate to vigorous physical activity”.
    • http://www.sparc.org.nz/getting-active/activity-guidelines
    • http://www,sparc.org.nz/pushplay/overview
    • To help the children achieve this, we will allow 30 minutes of every school day to some form of fun physical activity: dancing, playing games, aerobics etc.
  • 10. After-school sports
    • The children will be actively encouraged to join an after school sports team.
    • Many options of different sports will be offered, with supportive and encouraging coaches from within the school community.
    • Inter-class and inter-school competitions will be organised to get the children more active by playing these sports.
