It is a community-wide approach to enhancing the social, economic and environmental health and well being of children that attend Warrnambool schools.
In response, this also has a positive impact on the parents, teachers and support staff at Warrnambool schools and, as such, the wider Warrnambool community.
It is a program unique to Victoria that has been enthusiastically embraced by the people of Warrnambool.
It is fun, educational and successful - up to 70 per cent of the city’s primary school population taking part in its specific activities. Check out each schools page on the toolbar, each school has Ambassadors and set some Smart Goals for 2016 (check out 2016 plan below).
