SS&A Albury has committed $10,000 a year for three years to Bluearth Active School Program, a national registered charity that works with schools to make a difference in the lives of Aussie kids.
The Bluearth Active School Program involves development programs for teachers and students that encourage self-awareness, self-confidence and self-responsibility through physical activity. The program for students encompasses coordination and movement through participation, rather than competition. Students learn skills and building blocks designed to enhance resilience and well-being. Programs can also be used to develop the social and emotional skills of students, with a focus on leadership and peer support.
Gerard Darmody, CEO of SS&A says “SS&A Albury are proud to be able to support a program that makes a positive impact, not only the students but the teachers, with programs that can improve physical and emotional health and wellbeing.”
Bluearth works Australia wide, with over 1,000 urban, remote and rural school communities throughout Australia have benefited from the program. In the Albury/Wodonga region, Bluearth currently has programs in Albury Public School, Lavington East Public School and Belvoir Special School Wodonga.
Matt Dillon, Regional Coordinator for Bluearth says “Partnerships such as this helps Bluearth expand its vision of a healthy active nation. We thank the SS&A for its commitment to Bluearth and the local community.”
