Generations of Indigenous Australians in remote communities have lived a life impacted by poor health. This affects the whole community, especially young people. Red Dust believes that’s good health is the key to a bright future and that health outcomes can only be made possible through a two-way exchange with communities.
Healthy Living Is A School-Based Health Development Program Delivered Through Three Stages Of Week-Long Visits To Schools In Remote Communities.
Healthy Living utilises sport, art, music and dance to drive its messages resulting in fun, interactive and inclusive classroom activities. Role Models from sport, art, music, dance, business and health provide the expertise to support the delivery of Healthy Living. Students learn the essential elements to good health including nutrition, hygiene, substance misuse and physical activity. Learning outcomes range from the recommended intake of fruit and vegetables to the definition and causes of common preventable diseases. Students are encouraged to be creative and learn new skills in sport, the arts and healthy cooking while interacting with role models.
