Activating communities through active schools

11 June 2019

Introduction and guide for organisations, clubs, parents, and volunteers supporting Active Schools.

An Active School encourages New Zealand children to choose and enjoy physical activity. We can achieve this goal if schools, organisations, and clubs work together – and all our children will benefit.

As a club or organisation, a parent or volunteer, you can play an important role in supporting Active Schools.


There are significant benefits for:

  • children
  • an organisation or club
  • the whole school community and
  • your own skill-learning and involvement in activity – and ultimately for the next generation of New Zealanders.
