SHSS is starting a new initiative, Don’t Sit! Get Fit!, to get students to be more active in their daily routines. The main emphasise it on DAILY activity becoming ‘routine’. That it is a habit and promotes an active lifestyle and not a focus on competition or sport. It shouldn't be something they should see as being forced to do.
What will it involve?
1. One lunch time a week for 30 mins in the gym/astro pitch:
-walking around the gym/astro depending on the weather
- weights will be available and music.
-ATTENDANCE SHEET WILL BE COMPLETED EACH WEEK.
2. During SPHE classes: walks/exercise routines every few classes
3. Every TUESDAY after school for 45mins: all level fitness and exercise class, fun with music, all welcome.
The following are the time for each year group=
-1st years= Monday lunch 1-1.30
-2nd years= Tuesday lunch 1-1.30
-3rd years= Wednesday lunch 1-1.30
-5thyears= Thursday lunch 1-1.30
-6thyears= Fridaylunch 1-1.30
Ty’s= Who manage attendance of the year group that is scheduled for the day they are scheduled for.
-4.1=Monday, 4.2=Tuesday, 4.3 = Wednesday, HALF 4.4=Thursdayand the other HALF 4.4 =FRIDAY
We really want it to be a success and really want it to get the girls to see the importance of active daily lives. I hope you see the importance of and support such an initiative and emphasise the message at home as well.
