When children participate in regular physical activity, it boosts their physical and mental health and improves academic performance.
Physical activity throughout the day also improves concentration, and the ability to retain information and solve problems.
There are many benefits to being active and getting your move on, but a lot of children aren’t moving enough, particularly while learning from home.

To help support your children to stay active while learning from home, families can access a range of free COVIDSafe ideas to stay active and games through Get Active Victoria.
Families should remember that whatever gets children moving, gets them active.
