What is The Achievement Program?
The Achievement Program supports schools to coordinate health and wellbeing actions across relevant health priority areas.
In plain terms, the Achievement Program takes all the fantastic work that schools are doing and puts it into policy. This ensures that students, staff and families have access to a healthy environment, both now and into the future.
The Achievement Program allows schools to work on the following priority areas:
Great for the school
St Liborius promotes healthy living through many areas of the school, which has had great results for the school. St Liborius teacher Lisa Patterson has been involved in working through the Achievement Program for a number of years, and feels that St Liborius has been reaping the benefit of it for years.
“The Achievement Program has been wonderful for the school”, said Mrs Patterson, “students, teachers and families have been involved in this process and are now experiencing positive changes because of this program.”
“Working through the Achievement Program has delivered great outcomes for our school”, continues Mrs Patterson, “and not just in the classic areas of physical activity and nutrition, but also in more emerging areas such as mental health”.
Can my school take part?
Yes, all Victorian primary schools can participate.
Schools can register here, and start to work at their own pace.
In Bendigo there are a number of health professionals who work directly with schools on the Achievement Program, and are happy to assist schools with working their way through the program.
