What’s included
Brain Based Learning

Brain-based learning is motivated by the general belief that learning can be accelerated and improved if educators base how and what they teach on the science of learning, rather than on past educational practices, established conventions, or assumptions about the learning process.

Kinesthetic Learning

Kinesthetic activities help commit learning into long-term memory. Turning a lesson into a physical experience is not only a good way to keep kids focused and engaged – it’s also lots of fun!

Benefits of Sport in Education

Participating in sport and physical activity contributes to the holistic development of children and adolescents.

Not only does participation contribute to physical and mental health outcomes and valuable social connections, but physical activity (including sport) has been linked to cognitive development.

Physical activity has been shown to stimulate brain development and this correlates with improved academic performance. It also lessens the health risks associated with a sedentary lifestyle so that healthy, active children become better learners.
