Scotch Oakburn Junior School has once again been accredited as a Move Well – Eat Well School, having met the Statewide program’s criteria around the promotion of healthy drinking and eating in lunchboxes and through the tuckshop, alongside a strong Health and Physical Education program and associated activities for active play.

Coordinated by the State Department for Health and Human Services, ‘Move Well Eat Well promotes a healthier Tasmania in which children can enjoy healthy eating and physical activity every day. It contributes to a healthy lifestyle and to the prevention of a range of chronic conditions such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, some cancers and dental decay.’ Move Well Eat Well is celebrating its 10th year in primary schools.

Thank you to Mrs Catriona Hurd for her coordination of our Move Well Eat Well program, Cathy Maartensz in the Junior School Tuckshop, and to all staff, students and families for raising awareness and supporting this initiative.
