We are thrilled to be working with St Leonards Primary School who have recruited 14 ‘Active OUR Way Student Champions’ from grades 3-6. This is a new and exciting student leadership group which acts as a steering group for the Active OUR Way project.
AOW Student Champions have been busy working away behind the scenes during 2023. The Healthy Communities team meets with students during the term to test ideas and to help plan and provide feedback on upcoming actions. The students are always helping to steer the AOW program in a way that suits them.
St Leonards Student Champions led their ‘National Ride 2 School Day event’ in March 2023, including making recipes from scratch and a ‘green magic challenge’ by adding spinach to their smoothies! The students are now running lunch time ‘come and try’ sessions for the whole school and will run an end of year school celebration.
We are so lucky to continue working with St Leonards Primary School on this project and for them to continue with AOW Student Champions as a leadership pathway.
