Supporting health education at Laverton College and Little River Primary School

Alex Fraser recently contributed $5000 each to Laverton College and Little River Primary School, allowing these schools to take part in the BluEarth health programme. BluEarth is a non-profit organisation that uses unique physical exercises and movement programmes to improve health, behaviour, self-esteem, confidence and academic achievement in kids. Specially trained coaches from the BluEarth Programme visit participating schools around Australia to engage with kids of all backgrounds and ages.

Malcolm Kay and Nathan Gee recently attended the BluEarth instruction given at the schools, and had a chat with the teachers and the Blue Earth trainer.  Malcolm says: “The school has embraced this opportunity to help their children become more physically active, and the feedback from all the teachers involved is very positive. I observed two classes with the BluEarth trainer, who engaged with children from several different ethnic backgrounds participating in simple physical movements. Some of these students have limited learning abilities, ADHT, and other behavioural issues but all participated in the class activities”.

Pamela Heane, Principal at Little River Primary School added: “We knew the BluEarth Program would be ideal for our student’s development but we were unable to find sufficient funds this year so unfortunately put off participation. It was a wonderful surprise when we were told that we had a funding partner and could start BluEarth this year, Thank you Alex Fraser!”
