Adopt a Healthy Kids School
Healthy Kids Association offers a membership program which is designed to provide easy access for NSW schools and families to the very best tools and resources needed to create a healthy learning environment for children. This health promotion program offers everything from nutrition advice, access to dietitians, teaching materials, seasonal recipes, advice on how to run a healthy canteen, webinars, tickets to the biennial Healthy Kids Expo, ideas for healthy fundraising and how to incorporate lessons about nutrition into events and everyday life in schools and homes.
There are currently over 1,000 schools in NSW which are classified as socioeconomically disadvantaged – which is often the reason provided for why a school cannot afford membership to Healthy Kids Association.
Our “Adopt a school program”, allows for organisations, businesses or individuals within each community to sponsor local schools by funding the $109 annual membership to Healthy Kids.
We love this adoption initiative because it helps to create and forge community connections between the supporting organisation/individual and the school they choose to sponsor, promotes social responsibility and most importantly, it encourages public involvement with children’s health.
If you know of a school that needs to become a member, why not adopt or sponsor their annual membership fee?
Through this initiative, you or your business can develop a close partnership with your chosen school and it’s an amazing way to show your dedication to helping children learn and develop healthy habits for a healthy life.
You’ll also get a shout out on our Adopted Schools page (see below), and a mention on our social media (with around 10,000 followers that’s some great exposure.)
Are you a sponsor that’s ready to get started? Contact your local school!
