Jump at the chance to be healthy!

Some Western Sydney locations now include pool based games and activities. It will be so much fun that the kids won’t even notice they’re being active!

The Go4Fun program is FREE!

The Go4Fun® program is offered FREE to families and is run out of school hours for two hours at a range of locations across Western Sydney. Local, tertiary trained leaders use the Go4Fun educational program to combine three essential elements necessary for safe, effective weight management and sustained healthy lifestyle change.
• Exercise and physical activity
• Good nutrition
• Behaviour change

An important aspect of the Go4Fun Program is that a parent or carer must attend each session with their child so that lifestyle change is addressed as a family issue. As a result parents are also provided with information and discussion time on:
• the importance of families eating meals and being active together,
• setting goals,
• the importance of routines and sleep for children.
