Building a Your Move School Team: Forum Wrap

David (Your Move) Paddon
Your Move Schools Team

We had a fantastic session on Tuesday 20th November with a great mixture of experienced and new school champions in attendance as we discussed the benefits of engaging others and building a team to help involve the whole school in the Your Move program.

Jane Genovese delivered an inspiring presentation and workshop which focused on the benefits of engaging others and addressing parental fears related to active transport. This was followed by some great case studies from Your Move Champions: Amy Ham (Lakelands Primary), Elaine Lewis (Coolbinia Primary) and Arlene Yates (Warnbro Primary), who each talked about the different ways they've incorporated Your Move into the fabric of their school communities. It was really enlightening to see that everyone, in their own way, pushed the same key message - "start with baby steps and build from there".

The Forum was a great way to wrap up our 2018 events and we're really looking forward to announcing the winner of the 'Get Your Move On Competition' before planning starts for what promises to be a fantastic 2019!

Teachers from Hillcrest Primary School had a great time immersing ourselves in inspiring stories from other schools. Thanks and we will try and get more of our teaching staff along to workshops next year.
