Woah! A ‘D grade’ for overall physical activity – that’s a fail. Our school children aren’t getting the recommended 60 minutes of daily exercise. They’re essentially getting a ‘D grade’ for both overall physical activity and sedentary behaviours. That’s pretty alarming. We can agree we ‘must try harder’ on getting school kids to be active. Active for longer than sports lessons The school day is long and Health & Physical Education (HPE) lessons relatively short.
