Primary School

Asthma Australia provides asthma training and resources for ACT school staff. We support schools to create Asthma Friendly environments and help people with asthma to breathe better.
Our primary school curriculum based modules focus on issues around food and nutrition, personal safety, physical activity, cybersafety, safety with medicine and legal drugs; tobacco, alcohol and caffeine.
The McGrath Foundation’s NEW Breast Education Programme is an important resource to map into your HPE/PDHPE and Student Wellbeing Program. Please register to join an online workshop overview.
Arthritis & Osteoporosis ACT
Healthy Bones Week is conducted annually in August to promote the prevention of early onset of osteoporosis by teaching children to adopt three healthy habits: consuming adequate levels of calcium in the diet; obtaining enough vitamin D (ideally from sunlight on the skin); and doing weight bearing exercise.
