This Girl Can in Your School

A considerable amount of research has shown that girls become less active than their male peers. This not only affects their physical health but also their emotional wellbeing. But why are girls less engaged in physical activities?


This awareness session will explore the current statistics around girls participation and will give you an insight of the barriers that girls face when being active. The session highlights some of the different things that school settings can be demonstrating to help break down these barriers and encourage girls to stay and/or become more active.


This awareness session is well suited for individuals who would like to raise the profile of physical activity for girls and young females.

Sugar Smart

As part of the SUGAR SMART in School Certificate and our food and nutrition support, this awareness session has been developed to provide schools with a short guide to the sweet stuff. Lasting about 2 hours, in this session we will cover what sugar is and where it comes from, how it is used by the body, the physical, mental, and oral health implications of excess consumption, nutritional label reading, and things to do in school.

These sessions are a great opportunity to either finalise your SUGAR SMART application or kick-start your campaign in school.


Making Physical Activity a Priority

Regular physical activity has been shown to increase performance in other areas of the school day, with research finding a link between activity levels and increases in attendance rates and levels of concentration.

It is recommended that children should be active for at least 60 minutes every day and that on a school day, 30 minutes of this should be achieved in school time.


This awareness session will explore the current statistics around child physical activity levels and discuss resources and initiatives that schools can engage with on a local and national basis in order to encourage physical activity across the whole school community.


This awareness session is well suited for individuals who would like to raise the profile of physical activity in their school setting.
