School inspires healthy lifestyles

HEALTH and wellbeing is of utmost importance at Wonthaggi Secondary College.
The school celebrated Physical Education and Health Week last week, which is supported by the school every year.
“It’s all about promoting awareness and encouraging everyone to be physically active,” health and PE coordinator Marty Chan said.
To mark the occasion, a number of activities ran throughout the week for all students.
Most importantly, the Year 9 students participated in Sex Education and Party Safe session in Cape Paterson, run by local nurses.
Other activities included the Year 7’s limbo competition and the staff against students basketball tournament, which was hilarious for those who were watching and ultimately won by the staff.
The week ended with an out of school uniform day, in which everyone was encouraged to come in their sports gear.
The costumes were creative with roller skates, retro tennis outfits and swimming gear making an appearance.
Wonthaggi Secondary College is an active school, so the usual physical education sessions were not altered by the week’s events.
On any given week during terms one and four, students are out participating in activities like surfing, cycling, canoeing, fishing and archery.
“Our program is extensive to maintain that awareness of health and staying physically active,” Mr Chan said.
