Increasing wellness, fitness and engagement for our Kinders, Sports4Kinders, Balaclava
Sports4Kinders, a ten-week physical education (PE) program, will result in a range of positive outcomes for our children; increased physical activity, health, well-being and direct benefits for our community. Children lead increasingly sedentary lifestyles, having a negative impact on both mental and physical health. It is vital to encourage our Kinder children to have active, fit and healthy lifestyles and continue these traits into adulthood – this expanded program would assist.
The major costs associated with the project are
The 10 week Sports4Kinders program costs $1705 (with GST) - this is 10 sessions provided as an incursion by a qualified trainer, who brings all equipment and mentors our staff so they can continue the program ongoing.
The $1,000 grant will be used
We would put the $1000 towards the delivery of the program, allowing us to implement it within 3 months.
How they raise the rest of the funding
We will be holding a raffle at the Centre (with donated prizes) and undertaking a fundraiser whereby our children create art that is transferred to tea towels for parents and friends to order.
