Fun program for kids at Toukley and Niagara Park

The program will run at Toukley and Niagara Park CCN339

A program aimed at helping children get active and eat healthier will be held at Toukley and Niagara Park.

Go4Fun will be held for 10 weeks at Toukley Aquatic Centre every Tuesday from 4pm to 6pm, starting on April 26.

It will also run at Niagara Park Stadium from 10am to 1pm on Saturday, April 30 and then every Monday, 4pm to 6pm, from May 2.

Camp Breakaway at San Remo will host a culturally adapted version of the program, specifically for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families, on  Wednesdays from 4 pm to 6pm, starting on April 27.

Go4Fun is a free, healthy lifestyle program for children aged seven to 13 who are above a healthy weight to enjoy with their families.

The program is run by trained health and community professionals and a fun way for children to build self-esteem and learn about eating well, staying active and living a healthy life.

Participants take part in group activities and games, receive rewards and prizes, while parents benefit from professional tailored advice to help make positive health changes for the whole family.

Go4Fun is a NSW Health statewide initiative offered on the Central Coast by the Local Health District’s Promotion Services.

Health Promotion Officer, Julie Hunter, welcomes the return of the program in a face-to-face format for the first time in a year after a COVID-enforced hiatus.

“It’s great that we’ve been able to offer Go4Fun in its online format throughout the pandemic, however, we’re really excited to get our face-to-face programs up and running again,” she said.

“Nothing beats seeing the children interact with one another in person, take part in activities and make new friends.

“We know there are lots of local families who have been waiting for our face-to-face programs to return, however, for those who are not able to commit to the face-to-face program, Go4Fun Online is still available and offers weekly online sessions and personalised phone support from a Go4Fun coach.”

Hunter said places on the programs were limited and urged families who wanted to take part to register as soon as possible to avoid missing out.

To register, or for more information, go online to www.go4fun.com.au or phone 1800 780 900.
