Desire to Inspire is a fast-paced, interactive presentation / practical, that aims to inspire, motivate and encourage more children to ‘get active’. Our hope is to visit your school and have contact with as many pupils as possible, on the benefits of an active lifestyle as well as the fun aspects of Little Athletics. The presentation / practical is intended for all students, not just those interested in the sport.
LANSW representatives are accomplished public speakers and specialise in talking/presenting to children of all ages. It is not unusual to present to 300+ students at a time, with a suitable PA system. Past evaluations received from schools have highlighted the positive educational benefits for both students and teachers.
Approximately 50,000 children in nearly 200 schools throughout NSW benefit from school visits each year!
The official School Visit period commences at the end of July each year and concludes in early September. However, visits outside these times are welcomed.
The length of each session is approximately 30 – 40 minutes and generally involves the following:-
• An educational presentation; including discussion about the different athletic events, coaching tips, equipment used; plus various fun, interactive demonstrations, using volunteer student helpers. The sessions are colourful, fast-moving and involve maximum audience participation.
• Groups can be split into older/younger (2 separate presentations)
• Practical sessions are per class group.
• Promotion and encouragement of Little Athletics, health and fitness.
• Distribution of information about Little Athletics, flyers and stickers for all students
• Prizes for onstage helpers
The presentations, lasting 30 to 45 minutes, actively involve large groups of children in demonstrations that are colourful and fast-moving. Almost 50 Little Athletics centres from all over NSW participate in the program each year.
School Visits are an educational and promotional Little Athletics program for all children. We look forward to visiting your local centre and school in the not too distant future.
