Term 3 2019 saw Aligned Leisure’s award-winning Tiger PAW program delivered to 13 primary schools reaching 700 students throughout the Cardinia Shire.

All participating students had the opportunity to take part in 4 sessions across the term. Firstly, an interactive nutrition session which saw them create their own healthy wrap or fruit salad as well as learning about the main nutritional components of food, and the benefit of eating a well-balanced meal. Maddy from St Claires Primary School said ” The students really enjoyed the healthy eating components of the program as it taught them the importance of eating the right food for their bodies”. Secondly, the students got to participate in a physical activity session involving games, agility drills and football skills.The third and fourth sessions were held at the Cardinia Cultural Centre and were facilitated by Richmond Football Club’s Steve Morris and Yasmina McGlone. These sessions were based around Resilience and Leadership, followed by Cultural Diversity.

As well as the opportunity to participate in the program each student got to take home their very own Richmond Football Club Tiger PAW football. 

Tiger PAW is a free, unique and tailored program and is being offered to every primary school in the Cardinia Shire Council. Developed from the ground up using VicHealth program logic frameworks and is tailored to specifically address Cardinia Shire Council’s health priorities.

Tiger PAW builds on the Club’s goals to allow communities to connect to thrive and win by supporting children to develop vital life skills and we are already looking forward to Tiger PAW 2020!
