Over the past few weeks, Wodonga Sports and Leisure Centre has been busy delivering the first Tiger PAW program to the Albury Wodonga community. So far, we have delivered the program to grade 5/6 students at Wodonga South Primary, St Anne’s Primary, Thurgoona Primary, Hume Public School, Baranduda Primary, St Monica’s Primary and Bandiana Primary.
The sessions have been enjoyed by both staff and children alike, as they participated in an interactive nutrition session facilitated by Happy Apple Nutrition, which saw the kids create their own healthy wrap whilst learning about the main nutritional components of food, and the benefits of healthy eating.
The students also participated in a physical activity session, which involved fun games, agility drills and football skills and lots of “COOL BEANS!” It was a fun and engaging session that focused on social interaction and the importance of teamwork. At the end of the day each student got to take home their very own Richmond Football Club Tiger PAW football.
All participating students are invited to attend the final two sessions of Tiger PAW, which will be held toward the end of Term 3 and will focus on building Resilience and Respectful Relationships.
Tiger PAW is a free, unique and tailored program offered to all grade 5/6 students across Albury Wodonga. Tiger PAW is run by the Richmond Football Club, Wodonga Sports and Leisure Centre and students from the Richmond Institute of Sport’s Leadership.
The program was developed using VicHealth program logic frameworks and tailored to specifically address Albury and Wodonga Council’s health priorities and consists of four distinct sessions:
– PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
– RESILIENCE & MINDFULNESS
– RESPECTFUL RELATIONSHIPS
Tiger PAW is supporting schools, communities and families to develop the next generation into strong, well-rounded, educated young adults.
