Award success for Strahan Primary School!

Award success for Strahan Primary School!

Congratulations to Strahan Primary School, who was recently recognised with a Move Well Eat Well Award.  This is a great achievement and shows their commitment to supporting healthy eating and physical activity as a normal part of every child's day.

Strahan is the third school in the West Coast municipality to receive Move Well Eat Well recognition, along with St Joseph's Catholic School Queenstown and Zeehan Primary Schools.

It is terrific to see these and all Award schools taking a whole school approach to children's health and wellbeing.

Some highlights from Strahan include:

  • School has free fruit available for students who do not bring their own.
  • On Fridays students have the opportunity to cook with the Canteen Manager with produce from the school garden.
  • Students may keep their water bottles in the fridge for access to cool water year-round.

If your school is already a Move Well Eat Well Member and would benefit from a short refresher session to revisit progress, keep up momentum or orient new staff, please contact movewelleatwell@dhhs.tas.gov.au.
