Active Schools — Go for Gold

Congratulations Coatesville Primary school! Coatesville was crowned Glen Eira City Council’s Active Schools Champion for 2021 after encouraging their students to be healthy and active throughout October.

Made possible by a Reimagining Health Grant thanks to @VicHealth

A total of 18 primary schools with over 7,800 students enthusiastically embraced Go for Gold and the opportunity to get active during October.

A hybrid version of the Go for Gold program was rolled out, so all students could participate equally. Those who were learning face-to-face were encouraged to walk, ride or scoot to school and those who were learning remotely were encouraged to be active twice a day at home.

Students embraced the many online options available to them including participating in GEL Anywhere livestream classes and many on-demand options such as yoga classes, learning how to juggle, exploring their local area, discovering new playgrounds or taking their dog for a walk.
