Having fundamental skills is an essential part of enjoyable participation and a lifelong interest in an active lifestyle.
In NSW, Carinya Christian School saw the benefits fundamental movement brought to their students. They began understanding the program and recognised the importance of a children’s physical literacy which led them to incorporate LaunchPad KinderGym and GymFun within their Junior School (Kindergarten to Year 4).
Carinya Christian School built a room, dedicated to the LaunchPad programs which allows children to access the room every day of the week, where classes are conducted with parents and carers by Gymnastics Australia-accredited KinderGym coaches.
The Teachers have noticed that through the LaunchPad programs; KinderGym and GymFun, their students are benefiting during class by developing posture, listening skills, team work, spatial awareness, hand eye coordination, cross patterning, finger strength, communication and more!
The school acknowledges that the platform of fundamental skills they have introduced to their students is also a LaunchPad for all other sports their school offers, expressing the fact that their children are more confident to participate in activities at school, can socialise better in the playground and handle stress more easily.
