eat well be active - Primary Schools Project

The eat well be active - Primary Schools project was funded by SA Health and co-managed with the Department of Education and Children's Services (DECS) aiming to build the capacity of schools.

The eat well be active - Primary Schools project gave schools an opportunity to work with an appointed Service Provider for an extended 2 years since December 2011 to build and promote sustainable curriculum outcomes and to provide supportive environments for healthy eating and physical activity.

This initiative was phased into 129 schools with enrolement in Reception to Year 7 since its commencement in Term 2, 2009.

ACHPER (SA) was contracted as a Service Provider by SA Health from Term 2 2009 to Term 4, 2013, and worked with 116 schools.
