Creating perfect days at school
Physical activity in school playgrounds - the key to good health, better learning and attendance in schools
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) children need at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous-intensity physical activity each day. But far too many children are no where near that.
School is mandatory for all children and the one place we know all children come to. This means, that school is our window of opportunity to make sure all children have access to being physically active which in return leads to happier and healthier children.
Corpus Christi School in Scotland created a school playground to promote physical activity amongst the children. Learn what they achieved in the below video.
