INDLOVANA Primary School took part in the Star Jump programme recently. The aim was to promote the physical wellbeing of the pupils.

It was a partnership programme between the Department of Basic Education and the Physical Education Institute of South Africa (PEISA).

The programme aims to ensure that physical education is an integral component of the whole learning experience and that through the Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement (Caps) all pupils have access to physical education as a component of their life orientation classes.

Schools were requested to observe May 10 as “Physical Education Day” and to organise pupils into doing synchronised star jumps as a physical exercise.

The day coincided with the “Move for Health Day” to promote public awareness of the benefits of physical activity in the prevention of non-communicable diseases.
