Live Life Well @ School (LLWatS) is a joint initiative between the Department of Education & Communities and the Ministry of Health and aims to get students, more active more often and to develop healthy eating habits.
LLWatS Professional Learning Courses
A series of registered Live Life Well @ School professional learning courses are now available to NSW public schools (K-6). Using the Health Promoting Schools Framework, the courses support the development of whole of school strategies that foster healthy eating and physical activity to improve the health and wellbeing of students and the school community.
Teachers enrolling in the professional learning will have access to online learning including a wide range of resources (e.g. presentations to share with school staff, research papers, planning tools, etc.), and the additional support of their Local Health District contact. Participants are supported to review current research, reflect on school practices and develop a plan for healthy eating and physical activity in the school environment.
What are the benefits?
There are five courses. On completion of course 1 (Module 1: Establishing a health promoting school and Module 2: Reviewing research and current school status), the teacher will receive 6 hours NESA registered professional learning and their school will be eligible for a one-off $500 grant to support implementation of their plan of action. All other courses are optional, and provide between 2 and 5 hours registered professional learning.
