Why do Action for Life?

Action for Life is easy to follow, fun, colourful and creates lots of opportunities for children to engage in quality PE. By doing this programme you will be bringing physical literacy into your class. A physically literate child is an active child!

Action for Life was created with children, teachers and specialists in PE and health promotion in Ireland. With curriculum links across PE and SPHE there is plenty of room for further cross curricular activities. We have provided a suite of resources that will enhance wellbeing in your school and classroom.

The Irish Heart Foundation wanted to create a programme that inspires and encourages all children to reach their full potential in PE. Children who’ve taken part in the development of the programme said they really enjoyed it because everyone was able to take part and enjoy the activities together.

When we get the ingredients for PE right, we can provide meaningful experiences that motivate children to lead an active life. This is really important for their current and future health.
