Healthy Eating

Oran Park Anglican College is involved in Live Life Well @ School and Crunch 'n' Sip.

Live Life Well @ School

Live Life Well @ School is a joint initiative between the NSW Department of Education and Communities and NSW Ministry of Health that aims to get more students, more active, more often, as well as improving students’ eating habits.

The program aims to develop teachers’ knowledge, skills and confidence in teaching nutrition and physical education including fundamental movement skills as part of the K-6 Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE) syllabus.

Crunch 'n' Sip

Crunch&Sip is a scheduled break at Oran Park Anglican College for students to 'refuel' on fruit and salad vegetables and 'rehydrate' with water. Students who are not hungry and are well hydrated perform better in the classroom, show increase concentration, and are less likely to be irritable and disruptive.

Many students are not eating enough fruit and vegetables for optimal health. Eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables promotes growth in children and protect them against disease later in life.

Garden Club

Students can participate in planting, growing and harvesting raw foods for the College to use as part of the Live Life Well @ School program.
