The Premier’s Active April program is an annual Victorian Government project to promote healthy and active lifestyles and to present opportunities to increase physical activity.
The Australian Girl Program has a ‘physical’ element that encourages being active, healthy and strong and participating in activities. There are sooo many things that we can all be doing to incorporate 30 minutes of physical activity into each day.
All you need to do is register as a participant, then log your hours of physical activity. Easy.
Plus, there are benefits for participants that include
- 10 free swim sessions at the Ballarat Aquatic Centre
- a 2-for-1 ticket for entry to the Melbourne Aquarium
