Sydney’s The Emanuel School is in the middle of a two week Healthathon for primary students which will run until  November 4.

Getting fit

Good health plants

The purpose of this event is to highlight and reinforce the importance of health, wellness and good nutrition in our lives.

In addition to an Adidas Fun Run fundraiser that will take place on Friday 28 October in Centennial Park, the parent community has come together to organise optional activities for the students to explore new activities that they might not otherwise be exposed to. With an emphasis on the Emanuel Mind Body Spirit ethos, it all ties together so nicely.

The Healthathon program consists of 18 classes that will take place from 24 October – 4 November and includes yoga, meditation, tai chi, tae kwon do, gardening, dance, capoeira and one that is sure to be jam packed – a laughter workshop. The enthusiasm from the parents has been overwhelming. Each of these classes will be led by a parent at the school and will have a parent helper to assist.

There will also be 2 nutrition workshops for the primary students to reinforce the importance of healthy eating.

  • • If You Are What You Eat Then What In The World Are You? (K-2)
  • • Nutrition Detective – How to Read a Food Label (3-6)
