What is Transform-Us!?

Transform-Us! is designed to re-frame the way children learn, incorporating opportunities to move more and sit less inside and outside the classroom. It takes advantage of opportunities to incorporate movement and reduce sitting throughout the day, using innovative behavioural, educational, and environmental strategies within classroom, school and home settings.

Transform-Us! is currently available to all Victorian Primary schools.

What does Transform-Us! involve?

Transform-Us! strategies involve incorporating movement into everyday class lessons – the delivery of the lesson changes, not the content.

It is designed to be delivered by all primary classroom teachers and it does not focus on sport or physical education. Schools and teachers can choose to adopt some or all of the Transform-Us! strategies.

Full lesson plans and supporting resources are made available after the online teacher training module (about 20 minutes) is completed.
