Brains & Bodies Workshops

Alice Rees designed and helped implement this outdoor learning area project at Partnership Elementary. Students love it at recess and after-school, and the P.E. teacher uses it as well.

AHA’s Brains and Bodies Workshops are held during the school year on a variety of school wellness topics. In March 2013, a workshop on getting students moving outside of the P.E. class highlighted this outdoor learning area project at Partnership Elementary. Students love it at recess and after-school, and the P.E. teacher uses it as well.

Children spend most of their day at school, so we need schools to be healthier places!

AHA developed its Brains and Bodies Workshop series to provide parents, teachers and administrators with the knowledge and resources to create a healthier school environment and enforce a local wellness policy at little or no cost. Workshops provide practical tools and solutions and a way for parents and educators to connect. Workshops are held quarterly and in different locations across Wake County.

There are no workshops scheduled currently. AHA hosted a workshop on Sept. 11, 2013, about the 2013-2014 Brains and Bodies Award program.

Past Workshop Resources

 A number of presentations and handouts from past workshops are available as a reference for schools in Resources.

Less than 15% of school children walk or bike to school, but walking one mile to and from school each day is 2/3rds of the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity a day.
