Dear Parents and Carers,
It has been so wonderful to hear that boys are out and about exercising, surfing, bike reading, shooting baskets, kicking goals and walking. I would like to really congratulate the SRC and the great work they have done through the Edmund X site to encourage and promote the learning of a new skill, fostering creativity reaching out to others, making the most of online learning and partaking in regular exercise The National Heart foundation of Australia highlights the importance of physical activity when spending a lot of time on the screen or indoors and makes the following suggestions to help keep young people active
- Try something new, like hula hoops, or juggling.
- Dust off the Twister game or Wii Sports.
- Use a tennis ball to knock over plastic bottles filled with water (have a family competition).
- Try skipping, yoga, jumping, push-ups, sit-ups, lifting weights, lunges and squat
This week’s Parenting Ideas article by Michael Grose highlights some of the personal capabilities that will arise as a result of living in what has been described as the ‘age of disruption’. These capabilities will successfully carry our young people into the future.
