YM Schools April Forum - Engaging Parents

David (Your Move) Paddon
Your Move Schools Team

We're excited to invite you to our first schools forum of 2019! We've watched on with interest through the early stages of the year as new statistics on children using active travel to school have made national headlines.

We know that parents are the key decision makers when it comes to how their children get to school, so it is important to understand what influences their decisions. In this forum, we will explore the real and perceived barriers parents face when it comes to allowing kids to arrive at school using active travel. We’ll also explore ways to connect with parents and help them unpack their fears, by providing knowledge and ideas to empower them to make a change.

We’re excited to present the inspirational Kerry Logan from Play Australia. Kerry will share her knowledge and expertise in ‘outdoor play’ and the importance of providing kids with opportunities to engage in activities that foster independence, resilience and connection with their neighbourhood, as well as allowing them to be physically active.

As this forum is all about parents, if you bring along an interested parent who is not already a Champion then you will earn your school a bonus 100 points!

The forum will be held on 9:30am - 12:30pm on Tuesday 2nd April at the 140 William Building in the Perth CBD
