Interconnection between physical activity and wellbeing in schools

There is a strong, positive interconnection between physical activity and students’ wellbeing outcomes. Physically active kids have more active brains, higher school attendance and improved self-esteem and resilience. Quality sport and physical activity is one component of a whole-school comprehensive approach to sport and physical activity. The School Sport Unit provides resources, professional learning and mentoring to improve student wellbeing outcomes through the implementation of a whole school approach to sport and physical activity.

To learn more about the professional learning and support offered by the School Sport Unit visit the Improving wellbeing through sport and physical activity page on the School Sport Unit website.

The activities used throughout the School sport teacher resource have been adapted from the Sport Australia Playing for life activity cards and companion books. Teachers can access and download a range of game-based physical activity cards on the Sport Australia website.
