Active After School
Hawker Area School became a participant in the Active
School Program in 2009.
The aims of the program are:
• To increase physical activity levels of Australian primary
school-aged children through a nationally coordinated program.
• To provide increased opportunities for participation in quality,
safe, inclusive and structured physical activities
• To help communities develop the capacity to provide structured
physical activity programs for children and to stimulate local
community involvement in structured physical activity.
Active After School focuses on games rather than techniques
and technique drills to allow students of varying abilities to
participate and have fun in the sessions.
Hawker Area School's Active After School Program runs 7 times
per term on Monday afternoons from 3:20- 4:20.
