Move your body
9 to 12 years old
Moving our bodies feels good! Sport, exercise, physical activity… whatever you want to call it, movement keeps our heart, brain and muscles as happy as can be.
It doesn’t matter what kind of movement you do. Practicing a dance routine with friends, going on a bushwalk with your family, playing handball during recess or even cleaning your room – it all counts! The most important thing is that you are moving your body in a way that feels good for YOU.
So grab your friends, turn up the music and bring on the fun… it’s time to move!

My commitment to myself
I will accept and appreciate my body.
I will fuel and move my body because it feels good!
I know that I have special magic – unique only to me.
What I look like is not as important as what I do and who I am being in this world.
I will Embrace my body and encourage other people to do the same.
