Childhood obesity is one of the most serious global public health challenges of the 21st century, affecting every country in the world.
Activ8 for Schools is at the forefront of tackling this growing issue.
Activ8 is a health and well being programme specifically designed to help every school child regardless of ability/disabilty be more active, as well as fulfilling part of the Governments’ plan for combating childhood obesity.
As well as the health benefits, evidence suggests that exercise can bring short and long-term benefits to achievement in the classroom as well as long term positive effects on behaviour and mental well being.
The Activ8 program is quick and easy to set up and the aim is for pupils to walk, run or jog as possible in the allocated time around the circuit.
Once the data has been quickly and easily uploaded, at the click of a button the online portal will automatically update the mileage to show the class/school’s progress though the virtual walks/challenges.
