Western area primary kids an active bunch!

Over fifty five government, catholic and independent teachers from schools across Western NSW will attended a Physical Activity and Health Conference for primary school teachers in Dubbo on, August 9.

The School Physical Activity and Nutrition Survey 2015 (SPANS) highlighted one in four children are overweight or obese and this year’s conference focused on how working together across sectors is critical to reducing rates of childhood overweight and obesity.

The Conference was a joint initiative between Western NSW Local Health District and Department of Education, and was facilitated by The Australian Council for Health Physical Education and Recreation (ACHPER).
