Kids Teaching Kids Conference

Elaine Lewis
Coolbinia Primary School

Our Year 6 students attended the Kids Teaching Kids Conference yesterday. The Conference was held at the Mandurah Sailing Club, with students from ten schools from the Perth and Peel regions represented. One of the workshops we attended was conducted by the Baldvis Secondary College Green Team. The title of their presentation was the "Effect of Your Move and Active Transport on a Healthy Lifestyle".

This Your Move workshop was extremely enjoyable. The Green Team had the audience up and active, playing different games that demonstrated the benefits of engaging in physical activities with others, that used a wide range of our senses. Laughter and movement were features of this workshop, leading to the take home message that active transport is fun, healthy and good for the environment. Congratulations Baldvis Secondary College Green Team!

Hi Elaine - thanks for sharing your experience of the KTK day. Schools learning from schools, and kids learning from kids is what Your Move is all about! It's also good to hear that what secondary schools do is relevant to primary schools. Thanks!
