Testimonials

“The activities planned and implemented for our Family Fun Night consisted of tabloid sports, recreational games and dance. Through the level of participation and willingness of the children and parents to be involved, it was evident that the activities were motivational, engaging and above all enjoyable. The feedback from students and parents has been very positive. Parents were very pleased with the idea of fun   activities with their children and the children enjoyed completing the activities with their parents and siblings.                                                                             All are looking forward to the next Family Fun Night!

I highly recommend Play 4 Life as a very stimulating and different form of activity and entertainment and it was the perfect attraction for a welcoming event for the beginning of the year.”

Rob Romeo (Principal – St Munchin’s, Gosnells)

“Our Tabloid Carnival was extremely successful, the children had a wonderful day. Play 4 Life even provided the music for the announcer. Thank you to Jacob and his helpers, they were wonderful. I highly recommend Play 4 Life for any school or organisation wanting to   provide a sports based program or activity. The highly professional manner in which they conducted their business was appreciated.”

After-School General Information

P4L Pic Kids Fitballs

After-School Specialised Sports / Physical Activity…

  • We have a range of sport & activity programs that are introduced by a ‘Free’ In-School Session (30 minutes per class) with registration flyers then being given out.
  • The ‘Free’ In-School sessions would be scheduled on a day and time to suit the school. They would be for specified year levels, e.g., Pre-Primary to Year 3 and run in 30 minute consecutive timeslots.
  • Parents then receive the registration flyer and decide if they want their child to enrol in the After-School Program for the         nominated cost.
  • We would use the school grounds and the sessions would begin 15 minutes after school finishes. Ideally, the sessions are 60 minutes in length and each program runs between 6 to 8 weeks.
  • Should schools wish to have the After-School programs offered but are not able to allocate time for the In-School sessions, then it is possible for Registration flyers to be delivered to the school to be handed out to the children.

Staff Professional Development

P4L Pic Baseball Motivation

Professional Development

  • This program focuses on the fact that many classroom teachers need some form of assistance in their additional role of Physical Activity Provider within the classroom environment.
  • We prefer one hour sessions, which could be run during your staff meeting or PD day. We believe 2 x 1 hour sessions spaced approximately 6 weeks apart is ideal.
  • Price will be quoted on application.
  • The emphasis is on giving classroom teachers guidance and     practical ideas to develop and improve their class physical activity ‘class’ sessions.

 

By assisting teachers to feel more confident, they will be encouraged to be more proactive in conducting physical activity classes and develop an understanding of how to organise activities that ensure maximum participation and skill development in organised, active and productive sessions.
