Live Life Well @ School
We hold regular workshops and network meetings.
We offer copies of a selection of resources free to local primary schools to provide to their families with children starting school. Schools are all contacted in June each year and resources delivered to schools for distribution to families in Term 3.
- healthy lunches
- tips for a healthy start to school
- games to play with children
- healthy meal ideas
- and storybooks to read together.
We also have a PowerPoint presentation that you can adapt for your school Kindergarten Orientation session to parents.
Jack’s FUNtastic Day is a storybook about a boy named Jack who leaves his screen behind for a day to embark on a fun-finding expedition. Along the way he meets Ruby and together they discover that fun and games can be found just about anywhere.
Central Coast Author Angela Barrett, and Illustrator Kim Fleming have created an enjoyable storybook to motivate and involve children in the 3 to 6 year age group.

“Little Jack Quick has fun using his screen but when he trips and takes a tumble, he discovers there’s a lot more fun to be found … just about everywhere!”

Vege Adventure is a one week activity to promote fruit and vegetables as part of the Crunch&Sip® break at primary school.
The aim is to encourage students to eat a different coloured fruit or vegetable each day of the week. We hope this will encourage them to taste different fresh fruit and vegetables.
The activity was developed for Early Stage 1 and Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) students, and offers a range of resources which are available to download.
