Vitality Schools Programme
Welcome to the Vitality Schools Programme. It’s a totally free, fact-filled resource for South African teachers.
Established in 2008, the programme helps you guide learners towards a healthy, active lifestyle. And it’s something South African children really need. According to the 2014 Healthy Active Kids South Africa Report Card our country’s kids only scored a D overall for health. Even more concerning, the 2014 report showed that at least half of SA children aren’t physically active enough, more than two thirds of them eat fast foods at least three times a week and most children watch TV almost three hours a day.
All these materials are free to download, but if you register on this site, you’ll also be able to order them online. Ready, steady, go!
This is your healthy school toolbox. It’s packed with everything you need to teach kids how to get moving and make healthy lifestyle choices. Take your pick from Lesson Plans and Coaching Manuals to Practical Posters and Tuck shop Guides. All ready to use and absolutely free.
The Vitality Healthy Schools Teacher’s Course will help make sure our kids, the future of this country, become healthier. The course focuses on creating healthier school environments as well as showing you how to use the Vitality Schools Programme’s material. Anyone within the school who is passionate about kids’ health can register. The course is also free of charge.
It’s show and tell time. Don’t keep your school’s eating and exercise stories to yourself. We want to know what you’re doing and how it’s working along the way. So send the details of your successes, makeovers and ongoing attempts to firstname.lastname@example.org. Then look out to see if your stories feature.
