What is Healthy Active Learning?

Healthy Active Learning is a joint initiative from Sport New Zealand, Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health. The initiative is part of a $47.6 million government investment from the 2019 Wellbeing Budget, and aims to improve the wellbeing of children and young people as part of the government's Child and Youth Wellbeing Strategy.

On the ground Sport Bay of Plenty is working alongside Toi Te Ora Public Health and education providers to improve the wellbeing of children and young people through healthy eating and drinking and quality physical activity. In 2020, the first phase of the initiative was rolled out in Rotorua. Today, we work with almost 80 schools and kura across the Bay of Plenty.

The initiative is based on evidence showing children's nutrition and physical activity are linked to both academic achievement and improved physical and mental health.

About the initiative

There are three components to Healthy Active Learning which, individually and collectively, will help support healthy and active learning in schools and kura.

Curriculum resources

New health and physical education (HPE) and hauora curriculum resources are being developed by the Ministry of Education and curriculum experts to enhance understanding and delivery of HPE and physical activity initiatives.

Toolkits & a health promotion workforce

The Ministry of Health is supporting the development of a toolkit to help all early learning services and schools create a healthy food and drink environment. In Rotorua, Toi Te Ora Public Health has a health promotion workforce to help schools and early learning services develop healthy food and water-only (and plain milk) educational environments.

A physical activity workforce

Sport Bay of Plenty, with the support of Sport New Zealand, has employed healthy active learning advisors. Our advisors are working alongside school leaders and teachers to enhance the provision of play, sport and physical education, and to create better connections with physical activity providers in their local communities.
