Peer Activity Leaders
The Peer Activity Leaders (PAL) program works to promote physical activity, enhance social connectedness, provide leadership opportunities and reduce the incidence of bullying.
School staff who have undertaken PAL training may adopt a range of roles including that of training senior students to be student leaders. The student leaders are then ready to run activities for junior students at lunchtime, during classes or after school.
The peer model is utilised to provide valuable skills to senior students and support the concept and positive aspects of peer role modelling. A key aspect of the program is increasing participation among those who may be isolated at school or not normally involved in physical activity. This is achieved through the targeting of specific participants, developing the skills of young leaders and utilisation of any of the 66 fun games and activities chosen.
The 5 hour training session equips teachers or other school staff with the skills to train student leaders to implement the program into schools or other selected settings.
Training is recommended to gain the most impact and for optimal integration and understanding of the program, however the PAL kit is set up for maximum support for those unable to attend formal training.
Training: $2,000 (includes 2 PAL Kits)
PAL Kit: $120
