This is Part 2 from the research report: Brain boost: Sport and physical activity enhance children's learning published by the Department of Sport and Recreation from the Government of Western Australia.
The evidence shown from the research reveals, the many benefits that children acquire from exercising. So if the proof is there, how can we be more intentional to ensure that children receive the amount of time that can make a difference? How and what do we measure if it's making a difference?
Should this just be left up to teachers for children to learn at school - or how about after school hours? Where do parents or caregivers fit in this picture? Or local sports clubs or organisations? I don't believe that schools should be the only place responsible to provide opportunities for children to exercise - it will take a community.
