Celebrate Healthy Bones Action Week

8 July 2016 By ExperienceAIS

Join the Discover Dairy Health Games and your school could win a visit from three-time Olympian and Legendairy Ambassador, Michael Klim. 

As part of Healthy Bones Action Week, the Discover Dairy Healthy Games aims to encourage students to build healthy bones for life by teaming their intake of calcium-rich dairy foods with weight bearing exercise and safe sunshine for vitamin D.

Supported by the Australian Institute of Sport, the Discover Dairy Healthy Games is a fun, two-week challenge (Monday 1 August to Friday 12 August 2016) coordinated by Dairy Australia and coincides with Healthy Bones Action Week, which is now in its 22nd year.

A series of physical and educational activities have been developed for teachers to implement in and out of the classroom and a points system will see students collect Gold, Silver and Bronze medals as they work towards the title of Discover Dairy Healthy Games national champion and the competition’s major prize: a visit from ‘Athlete Mentor’, three-time Olympian and Legendairy Ambassador, Michael Klim.

The Discover Dairy Healthy Games is open to all Australian primary schools and registrations are now open. Registrations close 22 July 2016. For more information or to register your school visit the Discover Dairy website: www.dairy.edu.au/discoverdairy/healthy-games
