School is first to get active
LAKES Creek Primary is the first school in Rockhampton to "get active'' with the new Active After School Communitites (AASC) program.
The AASC program is designed to engage traditionally non-active children in fun and safe structure physical activities and help build pathways between schools, local community organisations and sporting clubs.
Lakes Creek principal Peter Black is enthusiastic about the program.
"Our school provides physical activity for the students during school hours, but this program offers additional opportunities for children to become active,'' he said.
"Establishing positive exercise and eating habits now will ensure our students understand the importance of a healthy lifestyle.''
Lakes Creek will join forces with the CQU Panthers AFL club and Rockhampton Basketball to deliver programs in term two. From term three, Rockhampton Grammar and Emu Park will commence, and Sacred Heart will start in term four.
