Keeping your students active at home with resources from Melbourne Victory and more

The Department is supporting Victorian students to stay active during remote and flexible learning

 

Daily physical activity boosts physical and mental health and improves wellbeing. It also helps with concentration, retaining information and solving problems. That is why the Department is supporting Victorian schools to provide daily physical activity for their students during remote learning.

A range of engaging, interesting and educative physical activity resources have been collated for teachers, parents and students. These resources aim to support students to stay active, connected to sport and involved in physical education whilst they are at home. For further information please see the FUSE Learning from Home Platform.

Resources include a four-week online football program called Kick it with Victory, developed by Melbourne Victory Football Club, in collaboration with the Department and School Sport Victoria.  This free resource is available for teachers to use in their teaching plans or for parents to pass on to children to keep them active while learning from home. 

The program continues the Department’s ongoing successful relationship developing and delivering educational outcomes with Melbourne Victory Football Club.

About the program

Kick it with Victory features guest videos from Melbourne Victory men’s and women’s players and coaches, and daily training videos for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.

The program aims to achieve physical education and health and wellbeing outcomes for students, and covers topics such as:

  • keeping students active during remote learning
  • encouraging participation in sport
  • building resilience

Week 1 videos are now available, with further videos to be uploaded on a weekly basis.

To access the resource, visit Kick it with Victory.
