More Students, More Active

International and Australian research recognises that there all students can benefit from a targeted approach to sport and physical activity. Lifting our Game - More students, more active encourages schools to identify and meet the specific needs and interests of students in their communities and promote strategies that will encourage a healthy and active lifestyle.

The NSW Premier's Sporting Challenge promotes the use of evidence-based research as the catalyst for changes to teacher practice, whole school physical activity plans and local school sport programs.

Since 2008 several initiatives aiming to increase physical activity levels and improve teacher skills and confidence have been implemented and evaluated in NSW DoE schools. These initiatives have provided ideas for introducing and maintaining change in schools.

Information about these initatives and how they might be adopted by your school can be found at:
