SHINE SCHOOLS PROGRAM
The Gold Coast SUNS as part of their work in the Community are proud to provide to students and schools within the Community, the new and innovative SHINE Schools Program.
The SHINE schools program will allow the next generation to SHINE and be the best they can be.
Each student who participates in the FREE six hour program that is run over a four week period will experience firsthand and learn about:
• Being healthy
• Being active
• Beach safety
• Playing AFL
What makes the SHINE program unique is that it will be the first of its kind delivered in three-way partnership.
The Gold Coast SUNS players, City of Gold Coast Lifeguards and the AFL Queensland Game Development team have come together and will deliver the program, through the generous support of both the Queensland Government and McDonald’s Gold Coast.
Each student will receive a colour booklet to use and work through as part of the program and will get to interact with the players in person as they deliver the program, before participating in a fun based carnival at Metricon Stadium with other schools as a way of celebrating the conclusion of the program.
The program will run for the first 3 weeks in school time (1 hour a week) for Grade 4 students.
The program will be delivered to over 2,500 students in 26 schools in 2013 through 15,000 hours of direct program delivery.
