2017 KOOL KIDS CLUB NEWS AND ACHIEVEMENTS
Namatjira Dreaming Program Term 1
Every Monday we go to Namatjira to teach kids the differences between healthy foods & unhealthy foods. Kool Kids Club also teach the kids how to cook healthy feeds for themselves and their family, we get all our healthy recipes from a cook book called “Made Fresh More Mad FEEDS” we have cooked things such as, Spaghetti primavera soup, Chicken & spinach pasta, Chicken burgers and other tasty foods.
The kids love coming down and having the chance to help us make these tasty foods and smoothies for the staff, volunteers and their friends. Not only do the kids get to learn how to cook but they also can come down and learn different arts and crafts with our amazing volunteer Manny, who the kids just absolutely love. It’s also a time for the kids of the community just to come down and hang out and have heaps of FUN riding on the pushbikes and playing sport activities.
THANK YOU TO ALL THE KIDS AND FAMILIES WHO PARTICIPATED IN THIS TERMS NAMA PROGRAM!
Thank you to South Eastern Sydney Local Health District for funding this important program.
Term one Early Morning Fitness 2017
Each week the Kool Kids bus wait patiently outside family homes from 6.30am to take the kids to the gym while Shane, our trainer from First Grade Fitness, is busy preparing the gym for our arrival.
Our Monday morning fitness program welcomed three new Switch Leaders to our team this term, Ariana, Coolalia & Jade. Our new members started high school this year so to have them commit to an early start each Monday was an awesome effort, well done girls.
Term 1 was by far our most successful term at the gym. Our leaders challenged themselves (and the staff) to push through the pain and complete weekly circuits as a team. Most weeks we were teamed up in groups or pairs, to see which team could complete the training first. Shane put a lot of thought into our weekly sessions which kept the kids pushing the limits.
On average we had 6-8 leaders attend the training each week which was followed by a fresh healthy breakfast on the beach before being dropped to school.
Congratulations to you all, and to Drew who won the award for best effort & commitment to the program. Huge thanks to Rasharyn & Ihi for staying committed and working out with us girls. Boys, we enjoyed beating you in team challenges. To the Scott, Shane & the staff at First Grade Fitness thank you for getting the best out of the team this term. The confidence amongst the group is a highlight for us at Kool Kids. See you all bright and early in term 2.
