ANDREWS CREEK PRIMARY SCHOOL RECOGNISED

MOVE WELL EAT WELL AWARD

Andrews Creek Primary School is in celebration mode after having recently been recognised for making healthy eating and physical activity a priority for all students. In recognition of this achievement, the school received this year’s Move Well Eat Well Award.

The students at Andrews Creek Primary School regularly enjoy fruit, vegetables and healthy snacks and their school is taking every opportunity to back up healthy eating with activities outside the classroom.  Students participate in a Kitchen Garden program; growing, harvesting, preparing and sharing healthy foods.  Students also enjoy regular physical activity, especially daily PE and Get Moving afternoons lead by Student Fitness Leaders. 

Principal, Mrs Sarah-Jane Tregenza, is delighted with the Award as she has seen the benefits of valuing healthy eating and physical activity within the school. 

“We see that when students are eating healthily and getting active each day, their concentration and energy levels improve which leads to improvements in learning” said Sarah-Jane.  “Schools play an important role in supporting children to develop regular healthy eating and physical activity routines, routines that we hope become life-long.

Parents are involved and informed and give the school and students tremendous support.  For example, parents volunteer their time to help facilitate our Perceptual Motor program and engage with our Kitchen Garden program.  ”

Creating healthy habits for life is the basis of the Move Well Eat Well Program with Andrews Creek Primary School one of over 175 primary schools across Tasmania participating in this program.

An initiative of the Tasmanian Department of Health and Human Services, Move Well Eat Well encourages schools to promote physical activity and healthy eating for all children through an Award Program.

The Move Well Eat Well program is free and provides a comprehensive, yet simple guide, on how to create a healthier environment for children by promoting six healthy messages: Tap into Water Every Day; Plant Fruit and Veg in Your Lunchbox; Limit ‘Occasional’ Foods;

Move, Play and Go; Turn Off, Switch to Play; and Stride and Ride.
